(CNN) -- Start saying goodbye to your coworkers, because you might retire with a $750 million-winning lottery ticket tomorrow.
OK, probably not. But Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot is the third largest in US history.
Now time for a reality check: Your odds of hitting the jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338.
In other words, you have a much greater chance of getting murdered while on a trip to the Grand Canyon or getting killed by celebratory fireworks.
Still, someone has to win eventually. Like the South Carolina woman who won the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot last year.
