Abstract: Consider two losing games. When a player plays these games in a random or periodic strategy, one may expect to see a losing game. The Parrondo's paradox arises when this combined game leads to a winning one. The original game was invented by Parrondo as a discrete-time version of ashing Brownian ratchet. It has applied in several elds such as economics, physical quantum systems, and population genetics. In this paper, we introduce a new version of paradox by considering a new rule for one of those games. The paradoxical property is shown by some computer simulations. Keywords Parrondo's paradox, losing game, winning game, randomized rule.
