The main goal of this paper is to introduce the probability game. On one hand, we analyze the Shapley value by providing an axiomatic characterization. We propose the so-called independent fairness property, meaning that for any two players, the player with larger individual value gets a larger portion of the total benefit. On the other, we use the Shapley value for studying the profitability of merging two agents.
