Living in an ineligible country and applying for a Green Card? ?

I was born in Poland but I have both British and Polish citizenships. UK and Poland are the only countries in Europe that are ineligible to apply for a green card. Does this mean that I have absolutely NO chance for receiving a green card or just living legally in US? Right now I’m 14 but if I make myself highly educated and become a teacher (a very desirable job in US) will I get a chance? Thank you.
Even if they are ineligible for the green card lottery, then how did I manage to watch an actual TV programme about Poles winning the lottery, like four years ago?
