Random drawing for the study, “Risky Choice”, March 1st.

For the Pie Chart the random number was 24.

 

    https://www.random.org/draws/details/?draw=64331

 

The number 24 is not in the green section of the pie, thus those choosing the pie lottery did not win.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the random drawing, the number was:    16.

Thus participants win 1 $ if they chose the alternative lottery (not the pie) and with 16 in the range of winning number.
