Every poker player knows that being dealt by a Royal Flush is possibly the best thing that can happen to them in their whole mundane existence; that is getting a straight flush with Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace cards.

In a 7 card game, your chance of getting a Royal flush is about 1 in 30,940. Nevertheless, in a game with 5 cards out of the deck, your chance of getting a Royal flush is even lesser, the odds being 1 in 649,740.

In other words, if you were dealt 20 poker hands every night over the course of your whole life, the odds of you expecting a Royal Flush would be just once, considering you were to live for 89 years!

However, the odds of being hit by lightning in your lifetime is 1 in 3,000. So, your chances of getting struck by lightning is actually higher.
