This week's projected Mega Millions jackpot is $1.55 billion, making it the highest in the game's history.
You only have around a one in 302.5 million chance of winning the huge cash sum.
However, you may avoid relying only on chance by carefully selecting your numbers.
Harvard University statistics instructor Mark Glickman claims there are ways to increase your chances of becoming a millionaire overnight.
As Glickman put it to CBS News, "the best you can really do is just play lots and lots of times," and only then will your chances of winning improve.
He also disclosed that choosing completely at random yields better results. He emphasizes that the less likely it is that you would choose the same numbers .
He advised that I replace all of my numbers with entirely random ones. Avoid choosing significant birthdays since many other individuals will also choose them.
As a result, you won't have to share the prize money with anybody if you win.
