Actually more people win the lottery than are struck by lightning every year.
In 2011, 26 died and 245 were injured as a result of being struck by lightning across the nation.
Usually Mega Millions mints around 10-15 new millionaires a year and Powerball creates 9-16 new millionaires a year. This doesn't count other lottery wins in other states and people who win a piddly million here and there in lotteries and contests!
