I’m interested in following statistical question regarding the random chance of a Roulette Wheel:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose I were to place a single bet on the first column of numbers (1, 4, 7,10,13,16, 19, 22, 25, 28, 31, 34), which pays 2-1, what is the probability that I will hit at least one of these numbers in the column in any one of 3 consecutive spins of the wheel; 6 consecutive spins; 9 consecutive spins; 12 consecutive spins and 15 consecutive spins.

Given the statistical laws of distribution, at what point (spin :rofl: # (n)) would one expect the first occurrence of one of these selected numbers appearing?

Please show probability separately for each group of spins as to clearly show the mathematical differences and how they affect the outcome.
