LOS ANGELES — Taco Bell is giving fans a chance to win free food for the rest of their lives. During Taco Bell’s “11 Everlasting Dollars” contest, the fast food chain will release 11 altered dollar bills in 11 U.S. cities.

Each winning bill will have a special serial number.

If you find the special bill and claim your prize, Taco Bell promises a “lifetime” of free food. You can track where the bills might be found on the Taco Bell website.

The odds of finding a winning bill are about one in 2.4 billion, according to USA Today.

    How are the odds 1 in 2.4 billion? We believe the earth to have around 7.1 billion people and there are 11 tickets. That would work out to a little less than 1 in 646million. This also doesn’t factor in there are large segments if the Earth’s population who live in countries/continents that do not have Taco Bells and are de facto excluded from this making the odds even better.

    Excuse me but altering serial numbers on US currency is highly illegal. Additionally, the official website and rules say nothing of altering a dollar bill.

    Also the actual prize is NOT food for life. It’s a $10,000 Taco Bell gift certificate. Thay would be more like 10 – 15 years of food unless you just buy like one taco each visit. See official rules.
