Now that the VaxMillions registration is open, hundreds of thousands of people in Massachusetts are expected register for a chance to receive a million dollars just for getting vaccinated.

But how much of a chance do you really have to win the $1 million prize? It all depends on how many people register for the prize in the coming weeks.

So far, 4,233,393 adults have been fully vaccinated in Massachusetts, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. Since five fully vaccinated adults will each win a $1 million prize, you have roughly 1 in 846,678 odds of winning -- and that's if everyone in who was eligible as of Thursday afternoon signs up.

We've reached out to the state to find out how many people have registered so far.

Registration is now open for fully vaccinated Massachusetts residents to win $1 million.

But for context, the 1 in 846,678 odds are much better than the 292,201,338 to 1 chances to win Powerball's grand prize or 302.5 million to 1 odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot.
