Please define your terms more rigorously and I may give it a go.

What do you mean by "prime"? Is it an element of N, of Z, of some (so far unspecified) number field or some other quantity entirely?

I think I probably know what you mean by "number" --- an element of C --- but clarification would be helpful.

What do you mean by "random" in this case? Selected according to some distribution from a specified set of primes, perhaps?

About the least ambiguous of the terms you use is "odds", where I think we can safely assume that you are using the colloquial meaning. If not, please clarify.
