I didn't have the sound up watching it so at first I thought Santa was staying on a dime.

Okay, one spin roll-off, dime wins...got it. LMAO.

We have that show on at work during lunch everyday. Some days Lady Luck just ain't going to cooperate.

The odds are 1 in 20. There are 20 numbers on the wheel and only one of them are going to lose.

1/20 divided again by 20. Odds are 1 in 400.

Right, but given that the first guy got 10 cents, the odds were 1 in 20 that the 2nd guy was going to get 5 cents.

Now, calculate the probability that the 2 guys ended up in the bonus spin.

The odds are 1 in 20 to any any number on a 20 section wheel. So the odds of hitting 10 were 1 in twenty. Now, in order for the guy to lose, he has to hit the lowest number, 5, a 1 in 20 chance.
