A very luck Mega Millions player in Texas snagged $1 million on Tuesday night by matching every number (the white balls) in the drawing with the exception of the special Mega Millions yellow ball.

The odds of matching all five white balls with the yellow ball to win the entire jackpot is 1 in 302.6 million, and to put that into perspective, being struck by lightning is a very attainable 1 in 15,300, especially if you regularly active outdoors.
