When Jason Gets Bored at Work

Jason and I have been playing eachother in Yahtzee on our phones throughout the day.  It usually takes a day or two to get around to finishing a game, and he is crushing me.  

Yesterday, Jason emails me this:

So…I’ve had a couple free minutes in the last hour, so I thought it’d be interesting to see what the probability of rolling a Yahtzee is after so many progressive rolls.  Here are the results:

The key takeaway for dice with buddies is that the fourth roll (bonus roll) more than doubles your chances of rolling a Yahtzee, increasing it from 4.6% to 10.2%.  To have a probability of at least 50%, you’ll need to roll at least 10 times though. 

Fun factoid of the day.  

I'd like to know how many husbands send their wives emails with charts, probabilities, and the words "the key takeaway".  What a nerd :)
