The U.S. State Department has not published numbers of winners by country statistics since the DV-2018 program. This makes it difficult to estimate the chances of being selected in the Green Card Lottery.
Based on historical records, however, the average odds of winning (being selected) in the Green Card Lottery are approximately 1:132.
