1 Date Probability Contests, lotteries, and games offer the chance to win just about anything. You can win a cup of coffee. Even better, you can win cars, houses, vacations, or millions of dollars. Games of chance are designed so that the customer loses most of the time. For example, the chance of winning a lottery where you pick 6 numbers out of 49 is in almost 4 million! You have a better chance of being struck by lightning.. a) List contests, lotteries, or games that you have entered. b) How often have you won? Probability MHR

42 Task: Play Klass Kasino Date The following activity is designed to simulate the way that many games of chance are set up. You don t have to play. The goal of any lottery, casino, or other gambling game is to have some winners and a lot of losers. While the games are designed to entertain, their main goal is to make money. Lots of it. In this game, each student who wishes to participate has a calculator and enters the number 00. This represents the maximum number of points each student has to wager. You have 00 points to wager. Enter 00 in a calculator. For each round, you choose how many points you wish to wager. In this game, your teacher will cut a deck of cards to reveal card. You can play of 4 games on each cut of the cards. The games are: Pick the Colour Pick the Suit Pick the Value Pick the Card Each game has a different set of point values. Pick the Colour: If you correctly pick the colour of the card showing, you win point for each point wagered. Add your winnings to the total on your calculator. Pick the Suit: If you correctly pick the suit of the card, you win 2 points for each point wagered. Add your winnings to the total on your calculator.
