In this manuscript I describe a couple of examples for implementing simulations of games of chance in R.

About You

I am assuming that you have some experience working with R. I’m also assuming that you have both R or RStudio installed in your computer. If this is not the case, you can take a look at Breaking the Ice with R

As a Data Science and Statistics educator, I love to share the work I do. Each month I spend dozens of hours curating learning materials like this resource. If you find any value and usefulness in it, please consider making a one-time donation—via paypal—in any amount (e.g. the amount you would spend inviting me a cup of coffee or any other drink). Your support really matters.
