5/216

6/6 * 5/6 * 4/6 * 3/6 * 2/6 * 1/6 = 5/216

OA pls.

EDIT: my calculations were wrong, it should be 5/324.

6! / (6^6) = arichards answer
but I think you had a problem with your simplification cause I got 5/324 not 5/216

# of ways to rotate 1-6 = 6! = 720
total # of possibilities = 6^6

probability = 5/324

1/216

1 * 5/6 * 4/6 * 3/6 * 2/6 * 1/6 = 1/216

I am not sure how did the person before do the same calculations and come up with 5/216?

Is not about poker, the same question could be:

rolled a dice six times (or six dice one time) what is the probability that each of the six numbers 1-2-3-4-5-6 (faces) appears

I think it has been explained already in the other answers but I will try to make it clear

6! = 6 * 5 * 4 * 3 * 2 * 1
6^6 = 6 * 6 * 6 * 6 * 6 * 6

so: 6! / 6^6 = 6/6 * 5/6 * 4/6 * 3/6 * 2/6 * 1/6
