Roulette Probability Question

#1
Hello Talk Stats,

In roulette, what is the probability of getting any combination of 17 reds and greens in a row?

If someone could show the calculation, that would be awesome. But if not, if someone can just tell me the overall probability, that will be great too.

Many thanks!

There are 38 total numbers on the wheel. Two (0.and 00) are green, and 16 are red. The other 16 are black.

So again, what is the probability of getting any combination of 17 reds and greens in a row?

Many thanks for your reply!!! Much appreciated.

Are you asking if you kept track starting right now what is the probability that the next 17 will be either all red or all black?

Or are you asking what is the probability of observing that streak during a period of N rolls?

I feel like you're asking for the first but probably should be more interested in the second version.

I'm asking:

Starting with roll 1 right now, what is the probability that rolls 1 - 17 will ALL be either green or red (not black).

Hopefully that's clear.

Thanks!
