    If x and P(x) represents the winning amount and P(x) the probability for a particular outcome, then
    ΣxP(x) represents the expected value of the game, i.e. expected amount of winnings averaged over a large number of trials.

    Outcome x P(x) xP(x)
    1 -300 1/6 -50
    2 1300-300 1/6 166.67
    3 -300 1/6 -50
    4 900-300 1/6 100
    5 -300 1/6 -50
    6 900-300 1/6 100
    ΣxP(x)=-50+200-50+100-50+100=216.67
    The expected value (winning) is $216.67
