The Prince of Morocco is well aware that the choosing of caskets and the ability to marry Portia is a game of chance, he wil either be unlucky.... or lucky. None-the-less, he is willing to take this chance.

Which is the better man, the greater throw May turn by fortune from the weaker hand. So is Alcides beaten by his page, And so may I, blind fortune leading me, Miss that which one unworthier may attain And die with grieving. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Good fortune then!—
To make me blessed or cursed’st among men.
