Odds of Winning Billion Dollar Bracket 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808

Have you heard Warren Buffet has teamed up With Quicken Loans to offer a March Madness Billion Dollar Bracket?  And did you know there is zero chance you are going to win it?

Well, okay, the odds are actually 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808.  

Those odds are better, we suppose, than getting struck by lightning seven times in a lifetime:  22,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. To 1.   

The funny thing about that is it’s actually happened.  

Roy Sullivan, who was a U.S. park ranger in Virginia's Shenandoah National Park, is perhaps the most unluckiest man to ever live after getting struck by lightning a total of seven times, each on different occasions. 

Hitting a perfect bracket?

Well, that’s never happened. 

The Quicken Loans/Warren Buffet Billion Dollar March Madness Bracket requires no fee to enter.

And it’s not necessarily a colossal waste of time to enter either.  Aside from bragging rights in picking the best bracket and in addition to the big prize that nobody is going to win, Quicken will award $100,000 for each of the contest's 20 most accurate brackets.
