Final Fantasy XIII-2 Trophies
Serendipitous
Amassed a fortune in casino coins.

Earn a total of 10,000 Casino Coins from Chocobo Racing and/or Slot Machines in the casino, Serendipity. You *cannot* exchange Gil for Casino Coins and have it count toward this trophy (however, such exchanges *do* count toward Choco-boco-holic ). The coins need to be earned, and note that it is a NET GAIN of 10,000 Casino Coins ie. coin losses subtract from the total earned. This means it is vital to save beforehand and load if you lose a bunch of coins.

If you choose to tackle this via Chocobo Racing, I recommend the Gold Chocobo that can be found in a treasure chest in A Dying World AF700. Raise it to the maximum level (Level 45) and it should be a formidable force on the race track; this is a "slow and steady" but reliable route to the goal.

Personally, I chose to earn the 10,000 Casino Coins from Slot Machines for a few reasons:

1. The "Lucky Coin" Fragment must be acquired from 777 Jackpots on the Slot Machines, so - like it or not - Slot Machine time is a requirement for 160 Fragments, whereas there are no Fragments related to Chocobo Racing. Might as well kill two birds with one stone!

2. Slot Machines do not require you to pay attention to the game; just use a rubber band to hold down and leave it on overnight. In the morning, if you earned 10,000 Casino Coins and/or the "Lucky Coin" Fragment, that's excellent! If not, just load a previous save (in order to recoup the Casino Coins lost) and keep at it. It's all about luck.

3. If you are extremely lucky, you can win between 5,000 ~ 50,000 Casino Coins in Victory and Super Victory modes on the Slot Machines. The rewards are a lot higher than those from Chocobo Racing.

Also, note that the trophy unlocks upon exiting out of the Chocobo Races and/or Slot Machines, once the requirement has been satisfied.

You're going to need to do the slots anyways for the fragment (earn 7,777 coins from the slots), so you might as well use them.

If you find yourself low on gil, just do some chocobo races. Assuming you've maxed out a Silver Chocobo, it's the most lucrative thing in the entire game.

i got lucky enough to get the lucky coin, and then, in the same session, went and met the requirements on getting it a second time if that were possible. what i meant by that is that i got well over 10k coins in 1 session of slots, and the trophy didn't pop for me, is there a potential reason for that? between chocobo races and slots, i've won over 15k to 20k coins, and 10k was in 1 session :(

You must make 10000 coins profit. It does not need to be in one session. This means one spin of the slot machine puts you at -ve profit. Therefore it's much easier to use chocobo races which you probably want to do for collectors catalogue anyway. 2 careers with a single lvl 45 silver chocobo should be enough for the trophy just make sure to infuse it with a lvl 24 mirochu before you start.

I tried sticky-taping L1 down for this trophy, and left it overnight with no luck. Spent an hour in Chocobo races and got it. Confused the hell out of me. Oh well. Just a few more to go for Platinum.

the slots are dangerous ... really and truly the best thing about the slots is that you don't have to worry about it if you just use the rubber band technique for the fragment ...

i'd like to say that the chocobo races, with time boost fragment skill, and betting on yourself (or on chocos you think will smoke you) works best .. just got this last trophy not long ago with this method within a few hours to platinum the game

Does anyone know if you can replenish a chocobo's RP? So far I've won just over 4,500 coins & my silver chocobo's RP is at 40 or something. Can you like just select retrieve chocobo & not play the races for a while to get your RP back or something?

I used a rubberband to hold l1 and let the machines mood be on fire. I got lucky enough to get 3 super jackpots. Note spend 150,000 gil on coins before hand

@gunsofthephoenix
just retire him and re-sign again, it does not forfeit your coin count nor affect the game in any other way than having available race leagues reset

Glitched for me. i had super victory mode with 777 3 times in a row winning 5000 each time yet i havent got the trophy.
I dunno why.

Had a derp momment, i understand where i went wrong. think i messed up getting this trophy.
I spent loads on getting the lucky coin and tried to save on a separate save (as power cuts were common at this time) but it auto overwriten it so thats about 20k coins spent on that, so thats a net loss of 20k already. so i need to make 30k now. i need to make alot of money just to buy laods more coin to set in spinning overnight.
Feel free to call me stupid :L.

I did the slot machines for this as well. i turned in a bunch of tickets i found for casino coins and did the rubber band trick. I had to reset it a few times as my coins ran out but i just reloaded last save and started over.

Trophy pops after you exit the slot machine.

REMEMBER YOU NEED TO EXIT THE SLOTS/RACES FOR THIS TROPHY TO POP!

 Comment #13 by OmegaSentinel
Wednesday, February 29, 2012 @ 01:55:44 AM

So I don't think coins spent on anything affects this trophy. I bought 15,000 coins worth of stuff before even trying this trophy. Spent 0 time in slots and just raced my Lvl. 45 Silver Chocobo all the way through its career twice, earned about 11,000 coins from two careers and after the last career I exited and the trophy popped. Only took about 2 hours to do two careers.
BY FAR THE BEST/EASIEST WAY!!!

(Also, I infused the Silver Chocobo with a lvl. 50 Pulsework Gladiator for race abilities, if that helps.)

Will the Sazh DLC work for this trophy?

 Comment #15 by Athenis
Sunday, March 04, 2012 @ 06:14:20 PM

No, the Sazh version of Serendipity and the version you visit in the regular game aren't in the same timeline. You can use coins from one at the other, but winnings at the card tables don't count towards the 10,000. Playing the chrono game is a good way to get coins though to use on the slots at the normal Serendipity.

I won a lot more than 10000 coins at the slot machines but still no trophy. Is there anything special I need to do or unlock? This is the last trophy I need for platinum.

Saturday, March 10, 2012 @ 07:12:22 AM

got the "lucky coin" fragment last night with the "lucky rubber band trick" started with 15,000 coins, got down to 2500 when i turned off ps3 without knowing i got it(160/160 defragment gold trophy). did notice tho before i turned it off i had got 7x jackpot wins 777/999 which ever it is. will start all over again tonight DoH. REMEMBER TO SAVE THIS TIME for the last paradox endings!

Personally I'm sticking to the races. did the rubber band trick overnight and got squat after I left the slots/area. Just bad luck though...at least with the races you can't actually -lose- any casino coins...because correct me if I'm wrong the coins you spend to use the slots can lead to eventually losing some of the ones you gained. All in all the rubber band trick -will- work, just a matter of luck :)

When you earn the lucky coin. Level up your gold chocobo to 45 and just win 10000 coins if you good you can win 4000 to 5000 coins per life. It takes less than hour. This is the best commando in the game for certain battle there's no need for infusion and don't change the strategy from default and it attributes are A and have 6 ability an best played with the ClOCK MASTER FRAGMENT SKILL ON this speed up the race. You know your status by the coins after the bird retire and in game. You check my PSN profile LividLeon.

Don't use slot because it stated right here every time you use coins it is subtracted from the total. I was catch with it as well. It is aso said you earn more money with slots that is false and should be updated is false you actually earn more money in chocobo racing than s

 Comment #20 by LividLeon
Tuesday, March 20, 2012 @ 06:58:51 PM

One more thing it is time consuming and rear to get over 10000 coin net gain from the slot machine that is why it shouldn't be recommended as a strategy for this trophy when the chocobo race easier. I'm not here to insult the intelligence of the site author(s) since this site helped get a few platinum.

Where do I sign to send a complain to Square Enix for the WORST MINI GAME ever in a FF game?
I t would be fine if you didn't need to play them but you NEED to play the Slots to get a 7,777 NET PROFIT on them.
I know they don't want us to be making easy money but then in that case they should have put the Lucky fragment somewhere else. ASSHOLES!!

 Comment #22 by erdvilla
Saturday, March 31, 2012 @ 04:02:19 PM

I don't know if it was patched but I lost 20,000CC on the Slots to get the Lucky coin. And then went to the Races and started what I thought would be an awful road onto recovering those 20k and on top of that earn 10k for the trophy, but after only earning 10k on the races the trophy popped even when my deficit should still be -10,000CC.
Don't know if it has to be 10k Net Profit on one of the 2 games or if one of the patches made it so that you only need to win 10k exit the current game and earn the trophy instead of a total 10k Net profit.

Once you get your hands on the silver chocobo with this build, casino coins will just rain onto you.

I bought about 3,000 coins and hit the machine on "On Fire" by 700 spins or so, I got the mega jackpot for 50,000. Again might be complete luck, but it went really quickly for me on these settings.

 Comment #26 by thatoldtrain
Monday, April 30, 2012 @ 06:15:17 PM

Tried everything here for five nights straight and nothing. Got home last night and within 200 spins with the machine on fire hit 50000. May have woken the neighbours up with my shout and dance combo. Seriously annoying trophy tho.

if you purchase stuff from the prizes thing does that count against your net gain? if so then i screwed up bad lol

@TruEDGE67 you get it in Arcadia 4xx, throw the kupo to the big Green ball in the command center, i got it after the second throw :D

 Comment #31 by johnequickiii
Saturday, June 30, 2012 @ 10:07:18 PM

Let me get something straight on the net gain/loss system.

Say I have 3000 coins and lose them all on the slots, then accidentally save. Does that mean that I will always from that point start off 3000 coins in the hole, or does the gain/loss count begin when you start your slots session?

Just wondering because, well, ya, I accidentally saved after losing something around 3k in coins.

Please, please tell me that it starts over every time you start a session of slots. o,O;

 Comment #32 by Chiral
Thursday, July 12, 2012 @ 09:03:04 AM

Getting the slots fragment lost me about 15000 coins in total.

I'd been playing the races on and off a bit, but never really made that much. Yesterday, I went in to the races to get this trophy starting with absolutely nothing, and it popped when I had 7498 coins. So... I honestly have no idea how it works.

how are you supposed to rubber band your controller when you have to hit circle, triangle, and square for the slots? This trophy is fucking stupid.

You don't have to press anything as long as you rubber band down the L1 button

 Comment #38 by Haouleo
Wednesday, January 02, 2013 @ 10:59:56 AM

I agree, Chocobo racing is a lot easier. Just capture the Silver Chocobo and try to infuse him with every ability possible (check the Serendipity page on the FF wiki). Find something else to distract you while he races (I kept surfing the net)and keep an eye in the game to check if you'll need a final moment turbo (remember to bet you'll win). Got 17000 coin in no time. Only after this go to the slot machine and leave it there to get 777 coins for the fragment, since it doesn't need to be a earned-lost, just earned.

cash in for 10,000 casino coins, sit down at a hot slot machine, hold the trigger button down with a rubber band while you watch tv or something, it will be done in a few hours.

After struggling with this trophy for WEEKS, I looked over the Internet for a possible solution to earn this damn trophy. So I figured out the people who managed to get this trophy started with at least 15000 CC, I was starting with 5000 CC. So I bought 19000 CC and left the game playing slots by itself for 3 hours and BINGO! After amassing about 30000 CC, I got the last trophy and the plat. Hope this helps someone out, bye.

This wasn't as daunting as I thought it would be. I got the fragment from the slots, then did the rest at the Chocobo races. So maybe 2.5 hours, that's it.

 Comment #45 by i5hann0n
Sunday, June 02, 2013 @ 01:22:41 AM

I'd suggest getting the slots fragment first and then getting the silver chocobo from academia 4xx af.

Get the chocobo to about level 40 (can buy the materials from chocolina) then go racing. The bird will be able to win all races below fal'cie class easily. Bet on yourself where the odds are between 2 and 4 and if you win you'll get between 3 - 400 coins a race. Took about an hour and a half to get this trophy this way.

 Comment #46 by LuNaatiiKzz
Friday, June 07, 2013 @ 06:19:59 PM

Get the Fragment by putting rubber band on L1 and just leave it over night
THEN get this trophy from Chocobo Race

NOTE: Gold Chocobo is preferable :D

 Comment #48 by Bliss2You
Wednesday, September 04, 2013 @ 12:38:01 PM

I have to say the Chocobo races was the best option for me for this particular trophy.
Maxed out Silver chocobo with the added infusions, I found myself getting the trophy after about 3 hours of racing and I didn't even win every race. In fact I lost a considerable amount. But since the winnings were still fairly high even coming in 2nd-4th I got it in no time.
The slot machines however ... Ugh I hated them. I got lucky the following night by getting 2 999's in a row during SV mode. So got my fragment.
I definitely advise chocobo racing first THEN the slots.
Good luck to anyone who is still trying for this trophy.

I think this trophy is glitched, cuz I did it on the slot machine and got the jackpot (5.000 coins) twice. Trophy didn't pop up.... Am I doing something wrong?

 Comment #51 by helvetia
Tuesday, January 07, 2014 @ 03:29:17 AM

I've been doing this trophy for 3 weeks in a row. but still no trophy... i'll try the on fire for the slot machine and chobo race next week.. this is the last trophy that i need to get the platinum. BIG QUESTION GUYS: if i quit game and go back again it will not affect my 10,000 coins earning in casino right? does it have to be consecutive games non stop? i'm already at my wits end here please help!

 Comment #52 by jakecore
Saturday, March 29, 2014 @ 03:49:56 PM

this trophy/fragment was a pain. i got the lucky coin fragment, followed by almost 2 back to back jackpots with 999, equaling over 10,000 coins, but didnt get the trophy. i ended up going off and earning 10,000 coins in chocobo racing, and finally got this trophy.

@#51, no, it doesnt have to be non-stop. but what i figured out is what others say is true, it has to be 10,000 coins gained total to get the trophy, and losing in the slot machines takes away from that total. if you have the lucky coin frag, leave the slots and do chocobo races. i earned it with a level 45 golden chocobo.
