I have to clarify this a bit:

That is why I proposed a chi square goodness of fit test.

I think you are better testing one-by-one, using a t-test to test the hypothesis that the mean guessed probability is the same as the actual value, unless you have a hypothesis that is independent of the probability being guessed (such as 'humans overestimate the chances of rare events happening') in which case, I would treat it as a repeated measures design.
