Don't let this be you. know your expected values, Probabilities, and odds of a game before you lose all of your money.

### Probabilities

• 13% chance of getting a 5
• 8% chance of getting a 10
• 4% chance of getting a 20
• 2% chance of getting a joker or a logo

#### 45%

45% is the possibility of getting your money back when you bet on one. The chance of losing your money is over 50%, that mean you have less than half of a chance for the most probable outcome. Because when you bet on one you would only get the money back you bet the next most probable outcome, two, where you would get double your money if you bet on it, would be 28%, meaning that the most probable outcome you could gain money on is unlikely.
