    Say there is a 1 in 100,000,000 chance to win a particular lottery jackpot of over

    200 million dollars.

    Do you think the bank would lend 100,00,000 dollars for you to buy all combinations, with a gaurantee that you'll win (and the hope that nobody else wins). Lets face it, it's very likely that with a 200 million lotto, not many people will go crazy and buy tickets (that only happens when it gets to over 300 million)

    So obviously, you are VERY likely to win the entire jackpot.
    Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.

    Even if you could buy that many tickets, there are often multiple winners. No idea what the actual chance to win is though.

    in the current economic climate banks are typically unwilling to lend to all but the most fool-proof of plans.

    i see no way in which this could possibly go wrong for OP, so get down to the bank nice and early in the morning m8 and congrats in advance on your win!
