In the clip, which aired ahead of Wednesday night's giant Mega Millions and Powerball drawing, Logan visits a DC-area convenience store full of would-be ticket buyers and proceeds to declare that "none of these people are going to win." He goes on to explain that they have better odds of getting hit by lightning, bitten by a shark, and hitting a hole in one -- all in the same day -- than winning the drawing.
He even suggests to one patron planning to spend $10 on tickets that she's better off burning her money, saying, "What you could do is buy a lighter, burn the rest of the ten dollars and then at least you still have a lighter." It was all in good fun, of course, and in fact, Logan even posted a video on his official Twitter account documenting the moment he decided to buy a ticket for himself.
As it turned out, neither the Mega Millions or Powerball drawings produced a winner on Wednesday night, which means the combined jackpot -- the next drawings for which are Friday and Saturday, respectively -- is now over $950 million. And while the odds may not be even close to in your favor, the adage stands that you can't win if you don't play.
