One ball will be drawn from this urn and the amount of money you win depends on the color of the ball that is drawn. How much you win depends on the lottery/action that you will choose. Since the payoff depends only on the color of the ball that is drawn, there are 3 states of the world, Ω = { r, b, y } .
