**Reiny**, Monday, December 21, 2009 at 1:31amHHH: expectation = 15(1/8) = 1.875

2H,1T: expectation = 5(3/8) = 1.875

1H,2T expectation = 2(3/8) = 0.75

TTT expectation = 0(1/8) = 0

total expected winnings = 4.5

Since you are paying $4 to win $4.50, you would never ever see this game in a place like Vegas
