MEGA Jackpot - Card backs and symbol output: statistics

Post by Poupignor I »

Hi Everyone!
As indicated in the rules, the backs of the cards show the 2 symbols that can appear when the card is turned over.

So, here's the number of times each symbol appears in the 90-card pack:

Apple (1 point): 26 copies
Ring (2 points): 23 copies
Red diamond (3 points): 19 copies
Carpet (5 points): 13 copies
Genie (7 points): 9 copies

Now, if you like, you may flip cards with probabilities in mind.
Or just play by feel, because after all, we're here to have fun and take risks! :D

What is the breakdown per card back? How many cards with a Apple / Ring back, and how many of those are apples and how many are rings?

According to the rules: "as there are more apples (1pt) than diamonds (3pt) in the Jackpot cards, this card [apple/diamond] is more likely to reveal an apple than a diamond."
