Ok so I have a story.

I played the slots for a whole day. When I got up on till when I went to sleep I played the slots. I could not get anything worth my life. Then when I was about to go to bed Iw as like "why not give it one more go?" So with that I left the auto on and used like a few coins. So about 56 turns in I got the miniochu and then in about 60 something turns I got 777 pretty close to each other. Then I got the fragment. To think if I just went to bed instead of just playing it.

Anything close to 130% is utter bullshit. I've played now many sessions on hot as summers day machine starting at around 1500 in manual mode and it's always just a staright downhill. I've NEVER been over my starting coins for even short while. I think I get any victory maybe once in 5-10 pulls and most of those are Mogs with some Chocobos every now and then. That would suggest an actual return rate somewhere around 20%, not 130%.

If it was 130%, you should on average pull get three mogs or better.

I almost shit my pants when I saw the miniochus. I was like holy shit! But these solt machines. They are to random. I mean in real life it does take a curtain kind of skill to get good. But with these it is just plain dumb luck when you hit big.

I must say, i do not understand the requirements for this lucky coin thing. Does it have to be in one go? Does it have to be 777 net profit in one go or about many sessions?

I believe i lost a net sum of about 10-15k already and saved afterwards to try another time and because i didn't give damn about the coins as i still had enough.

Do i now need to make a net profit of ~16k in order to get this damnable fragment? Is that even realistically possible?

You need to win at least 7777 coins, but not during one session.

However, I see you already have the "Serendipitous" trophy as well.

So the net loss is irrelevant, it's just necessary to have won 7777 at some point during all those games? Ok that clears it up, thank you

As for Serendipitous, i got that doing Chocobo Races.

Forever stuck at 99% trophy completion. I have everything except serendipitous. My casino luck is just horrendous.

This sucks. I'm going to leave it overnight with 13,000 coins to blow. If it doesn't pop soon I'm going to go into rage mode. Collecting all 160 fragments and seeing all endings was fun. This isn't.

Just do the chocobo races with a max level gold chocobo like I did and save after every few wins. It'll take a few hours but its a better option than the slot machines if you've got the fragment but not the trophy. My gold chocobo won over 6,000 coins before it ran out of RP and I didn't lose a single coin thanks to loading my save if I lost a race.

Exactly. If you already have the slot machine fragment, don't waste your time any longer on those slot machines and head straight for the Chocobo races. With a proper Silver Chocobo, you'll earn about 6k per career and you'll have the trophy in no time at all.

I ended up getting both on the 2nd day, I tried slots just about when i was about to call it a day and stop!

Talk about "happy accident" there! But now I can't seem to anything good most of the time!

Who all waited till post-game to try these? I was at about 30-31hrs
