Question: The Parrondo Paradox

I am trying to replicate the Parrondo paradox which can be found for example here  and


However it is quite difficult to replicate the results:


I assume that y=0.5  p=0.5  p1=0.1  p2=0.6 and the payouts are +1 and -1. The idea is to combine two losing games into
a wining game. The result is counter intuitive and I must say I find it hard to replicate the result.

I have attached a Maple worksheet where I have done a lot of work already
