USA TODAY: By James Powel – Seven things more likely to happen than winning the Powerball or Mega Millions lottery

Odds of hitting the jackpot in Mega Millions or Powerball are around 1-in-292 million. Here are things that you’re more likely to land than big bucks.

Luck was a lady for someone.

A gambler at Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas hit three major prizes in just three hours Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, according to Caesars Entertainment.

The player won $125,000 on a Dragon Link slot machine, then won $383,500 on the same type of machine and finished the streak with a $159,250 win. The player placed a $25 per-line bet on each winning roll. The player pulled out $667,750 in total.

The player likely had a portion withheld for taxes as the casino is required to withhold 24 percent of winnings when the jackpot is more than 300 times the bet, according to H&R Block.

The winning streak began just before 9:30pm local time and ended just before 12:30am.

Caesars Entertainment declined further comment.
