    Default UK LOTTO jackpot of nearly 60m must be won tonight!

    Good news: - UK LOTTO jackpot of nearly 60m must be won tonight!
    Bad news: - odds of winning the jackpot are one in 45 million.

    Slightly goodish news; because of the number of times the jackpot has rolled over it has to be won tonight so the chances are slightly better but you are still many times more likely to be struck by lightning than win.

    It is easier to win the Irish lottery. Odds of getting six numbers in Irish lottery is 1 in eleven million approximately. But prizes are much smaller. [Jackpot Only about 1,400,000(sterling)]

    Irish lottery = 6 out of 47 numbers.

    UK Lotto = 6 out of 59 numbers.

    Very true. One in eleven million and one in forty-five million are exactly the same odds.

    In real terms boths odds add up, as you say, to exactly, give or take a little, to no chance at all.
