The exact probability of 666 being hit is the following
Which is approximately .2000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000002166222683713523944720537405934866672. That's very close to 1/5. The third term in the continued fraction expansion of p is 184653222869167741981875869102352405779668736930185085305398884.
The probability of evilness converges quickly to 1/5, but it does so in a highly oscillatory way.
So knowing this tidbit should help players avoid wasting money on non productive numbers.
