Default Slot machines

Is anyone actually winning anything?? I think I lost already 1000 coins (w/o reloading the game save, obviously. I didn't check the trophy requirements before beating the main game). And I keep losing now. Worse than the real casino.

Damn! I hate those stupid machines!! Where is the Blackjack table?!

Well itīs just all about luck with the slot machines.
You can be lucky and win a lot in 10min but some it takes a few hours.
I belive it took me 5 hours before I managed to get more than I had when I left.

Never mind. I've just got lucky! I went into superwin mode, making 1 x500 and 2 x50 (777. Also I've got the fragment). Got 12000 coin profit with the trophy popping up. Good. I should have enough coins for the chaos crystal and odin weapons I suppose!

NOW I wish this could happen in real life!!

EDIT: I don't know if it matters, but I first spoke with the girl and she said that "the machine was on fire!!". I played about 650 coins that I had and lost all of them. Reloaded, exchanged the casino tickets and in half an hour I started the jackpots.

Playing in Auto-Play reduces your chances than playing manually (you win 30% more/or loose 30% less, during big session). Machine modes affects your chances too. Best mood is "it's like hot summer day" that gives 130% to win while playing manually, in auto-play its 99%.
The Fragment is obtaind by winning over 7,777 coins in total on the hall of gaming slot machine in any number of sessions.

Manual isn't all the much better then Auto-Play. i try auto-play for about 2-3hrs a day reloading a few times in between plays, still really bad even with extra item from ff13 save


Also noticed something that starts the 1st Bonus flag arrow
bomb 1st reel,
Cactuar x3
Reels fade darker x3 no 2 reels lined up or with winning matches, Cactuar x3
*but not really sure what keeps flags going just yet, to enter Bonus Stage where in 5 truns auto win 9's then enters victory mode then to enter bonus stage in VM need Reels fade darker x3

but also a bomb on the 1st reel or Cactuar x3 will end victory mode which is also used to enter bonus stage.

My playing with Auto-Play
I don't get how this happens at 0:30 in this!

Played this for the first time yesterday. I did 750 manual turns with the machine at its best "mood" and guess what? Nothing. I got a couple of X3 and a bunch of X1 winnings, but never anything more and certainly no "999" jackpot. I won less than 1000, but spent more than 3500, so that's not very encouraging. How am I ever going to make profit of 7777 and get the fragment? Sigh.

I noticed that manual play isn't even random. About 9 times out of 10, I would get a Chocobo in the upper left corner and two on the middle row. No matter how slowly or quickly I pressed the buttons, I usually got that result. Which means the images on the spinners are not random and you really have absolutely no influence over what comes up when you press the buttons.

Worst minigame ever. This is even worse than the Den Defense in Assassin's Creed: Revelations.

There's odds to every winning possibility (3x mog etc). I have the guide that lists chances to get different winning during normal/victory/super victory mode. Also as I earlier said, the chances in machines best mood in manual play is 130% and again the same on auto-play is 99%. But if you dont want to play manually, according to guide: get 16,000 coins and get string around L1 and leave it. Should be enough.

I know, I have the guide myself and I have a feeling that 31% difference on manual play is only because you'll be able to bet more coins when you go into Victory and Super Victory mode. I'm not sure, because I've never used auto-play, but to me, it would explain the difference.

Still, it is mighty suspicious that I would get the same line of Chocobos whenever I would hit my buttons from right to left. Sometimes I would wait longer to hit the final button, sometimes I would hit it right away... but the final Chocobo would always be in the upper left corner. That's an indication that you have no control over the results and that you'll just win based on an algorithm: the turn you're supposed to win, you will win, no matter how slowly or quickly you hit the buttons.

As an update I just played the slots in manual mode again for less than half an hour and I got the fragment. Same machine conditions as yesterday, I did nothing different. Actually, this time I only played 299 turns as opposed to the 750 of yesterday... and now I hit 9 jackpots. Okay, game, whatever you say.

I got the fragment after 275 turns and 6 jackpots, I continued on for another 25 turns just to see how long I could stay in Super Victory Mode and hit another 3 jackpots.

Random minigames... ugh.

I'm very happy I'll never have to go back to Serendipity.

What about all those beautiful prices one can get? 3 fragments and a wild artefact are mandatory anyway. Still I'd like to buy all of them. They cost quite an amount of the coins!

Is it better to farm gils or to win coins. maybe with chocobo races? Which leads to another issue. If the chocobo is good, betting we win f. nothing. If it pays high the chocobo is obviously bad and we lose. Maybe the prices for the best races are very high? Anyway I would have preferred that the chocobos could level up playing, like in blitzball. Putting a trophy on that!
