### Instructions for Choices between Mixed Gambles

In this study, you are asked to choose between two gambles that each have three equally likely outcomes. You can imagine that there are two containers, one for each gamble that have exactly 99 tickets in them. There are 33 tickets for each outcome, meaning that each of the three outcomes is equally likely. Because there are three equally likely outcomes in each gamble, the probability to receive the first, second, or third outcome is 1/3, 1/3, and 1/3.

For example, consider the first choice below:

W1.

 First Gamble Second Gamble LOSE \$100 LOSE \$100 WIN \$10WIN \$98 WIN \$36WIN \$40 First Gamble Second Gamble

In this case the First Gamble (on the left) has equal chances of losing \$100, winning \$10, or winning \$98. The second gamble (on the right) has equal chances of losing \$100, winning \$36, or winning \$40. Some people will prefer the first gamble and some will prefer the second gamble. If you choose the first gamble, click the button on the left underneath it (on the left); to choose the second gamble, click the second button (on the right). BREAK EVEN means that you neither win or lose. WHen you see BREAK EVEN twice in a gamble, that means there are two chances to BREAK EVEN in that gamble.
