**Reiny**, Monday, April 28, 2008 at 12:04amI will assume that the smallest 3 digit number is 100 and the largest 999, giving up 900 possible 3 digit numbers (999-99)

So the prob of picking the correct number is 1/900

the expected return is 1/900 * $750 = $0.83

So the expected loss per play is 17 cents.
