### Dice Experiments

Probability is the ratio between the number of occurrences of a targeted event to the number of occurrences of the total of possible outcomes of the event.

# Ways it can happen : Total # outcomes

Mathematical probability of an event is a number between 0 and 1 (0 meaning the event never happens and 1 meaning the event always happens.)

The following experiments were designed to illustrate and verify the probability of certain outcomes of dice rolling.

The rolling of the dice is simulated by calling the JavaScript random function to determine the outcome of the roll. The experiments hope to verify the validity of the mathematical predictions; they are only as valid as the random function is truly random.

### What is Mini-Bunco?

Mini-Bunco is a VERY small version of the popular ladies parlor game - BUNCO. In Mini-Bunco, a single player rolls the dice against the computer. Please review the rules of play and follow the instructions to ensure proper action.

"Buncos" and "Bunkettes" are specific outcomes of rolls in the game. At the end of the game, the actual occurances of these rolls will be compared to the mathematical probabilities.

# Let's Play Bunco

Game played by 12 players at 3 tables. Opposites are partners for a round.

Three dice are rolled and partners score 1 pt for each die that shows the round #. Player's roll is over when the dice show no points. Round is over when a partner pair at the head table scores 21.

Players move and split after each round. Game continues for 3 sets of 6 rounds each. A BUNKETT [5 pts] is 3 of a kind; a BUNCO [21 pts] is 3 of a kind that matches the round number; Bunco wins the crown.
