The Case of the Corrupt Carnival #1

Attention, Math Spies!
The county fair is arriving in a few weeks and it is your job to determine which carnival games are fair and which are not.  Check back each Wednesday for a new game to evaluate.

This first carnival game is straight forward.  Roll two dice.  If the sum is even you get five tickets.  If the answer is odd you get nothing.

Is this game fair? Why?
