Would you do the lotto if…

.

Odds on winning the Irish lotto (45 numbers to choose from): 1 in 8,145,060

 

.

 

Odds on being involved in a fatal accident in one of the world’s Top 25 airlines with┬áthe best accident rates: 1 in 9.2 million (according to planecrashinfo.com).

.

Obviously the second rate could change depending on the airline, but lets just say the above numbers are more or less comparable.

.

My question is… if there was a lottery whereby you could win “the grand prize” (whatever that may be) and also be as likely to win the booby-prize of Death (delivered by the press of a button by the lotto organisers, causing your whole being to immediately explode)… would you do the lotto?
