We introduce a one parameter probability model bounded on (0, 1) support called One Parameter Minimax distribution which is a special case of both the Kumaraswamy distribution and Beta distribution. Its statistical properties are systematically explored; we provide explicit expressions for its moments, quantile function, reliability function and failure rate. The method of maximum likelihood estimation was used in estimating its parameter. The proposed model can be used to model data sets with increasing failure rates
