    Question Jatzee game

    Hello,

    I'm trying figure out how to solve this problem:

    In a game of jatzee, a player rolls six dice on each turn.
    A player wants to get as many fours as possible.
    Determine the probability the player will roll at least four fours, at least once In the next 10 turns of the game.


    Thanks in advance

    What is the probability of having exactly four fours, exactly five fours or exactly six fours on any one turn? That is at least four fours.
    Subtracting that from 1 gives the probability of no more that three fours on any turn.
    You are having ten turns. SO?
