Banned because I don't have three dice to use.

When things matter, you can be sure there is dark matter or Dark Jedi around.

Banned because using the dice will "show" that I'm correct, but proving it can be done mathematically.

I rolled three times. Two dice, and 2/3 of the time I won.

Banned because that's way too small of a sample size.

Banned for, probably, understanding probability. I estimate about 17/20 odds that you do understand probability.

Banned because... Instead of just wagering an extra 10% over what they're wagering on ONE play, since the odds that they'll lose on one play is only slightly unlikely... if you make it a BEST-OF series, like best-of-7 or something, that can dramatically increase the odds. Here are the odds that I calculate that you will win a race to x wins or losses... meaning, if the player wins x times before losing x times, then he wins the whole match.

First to 2 (best-of-3) = 0.617081
First to 3 (best-of-5) = 0.645151
First to 4= 0.667964
First to 5= 0.687422
First to 6= 0.704512
First to 7= 0.719795
First to 8= 0.733610
First to 9= 0.746305
First to 10= 0.757959
First to 11= 0.768725
First to 12= 0.778836

The calculation involves extremely large numbers, so if you go much farther, the numbers become to great for normal variables to hold them... but using simulations you can find approximate odds:

First to 25 (best-of-49) is something like 86%
First to 35 (best-of-69) is something like 91%
First to 50 (best-of-99) is something like 94%

With these kinds of numbers... you can give them some SERIOUSLY enticing odds.

Banned because let's put away the math and have a pillow fight.

I'm never wrong. I once thought I was wrong, turns out, I was mistaken.
