What are the odds of surviving Russian roulette?

A statistician has come up with two, just in case you weren’t convinced:

For those of you who don’t believe in roulette… A person gets pulled on the number wheel and then they must pay or lose the jack (money in roulette balls)… For those who do believe in roulette… If you get the jack then you win the next time, but if you don’t you keep the coins. If you win 2 or more times in a row, you win the casino! (source)

In essence, Russian roulette will give you a lot of opportunity!

We recommend you to try it out!
