You must have more information to calculate odds. 1. Are you already on the show. Only 600 people are selected each year out of all the applications. 2. Have you already won the millionaire card. Many people land on the million card space and cannot or do not choose a correct letter in the puzzle. Others win the card but do not solve the puzzle and do not keep the card. You also lose the card if you go bankrupt at any time during the game. 3.Have you won the chance to play the bonus round with the million dollar prize on the wheel. At that point you have beaten the odds and still have only about a two Percent chance of winning a million dollars. The odds to get on the show are not by random chance and depend on much more than what an individual contestant has control over. Moreover since the game is based on both luck and skill getting to the bonus round is not the one in three chance that basic probability would have it.
