Kevin was pretty dead set on taking home the cash instead of risking it all on another roll of the dice, and it took host Drew Carey a couple of times to believe what he was hearing.
Kevin was playing “Let ’Em Roll,” a game where the contestant has a chance to win a car if they roll all five dice that show the car symbol.
On his first roll, Kevin rolled a miraculous 4 out of 5 car symbols, which occurs just 6.25 percent of times.
Kevin was faced with two options at this point: roll the last die twice in hopes of getting just one car symbol (and winning a Nissan Versa S sedan), or walk away with $1,500. He immediately and adamantly decided to walk away with the cash, despite 50/50 odds of walking away with a car of much greater value. Drew Carey was befuddled.
My first instinct was to think that this guy is a lunatic. But, as SB Nation brings to light, winning a car if you’re not in the market for one isn’t all that sweet. Contestants need to pay state income tax on all prizes they receive, and it has to be paid before the prize is received.
So, with all things considered, this dude is actually living in 3017
