Blackjack was annoying me, and then duh, it occurred to me to just save after every hand and reload if I lost. Betting everything, I popped the achievements in six hands.

Wish I'd thought of that before playing and losing for 20 minutes, :rolleyes:

Killer mentioned this trick in another thread a couple days ago...

Save when you win and load your save when you lose. Shouln't take too long.

Yah, and the easiest solution to not knowing how to play is bet everything you have, and save if you win. If not, restart and you'll have 10 again.

After that, use some strategy. Not even card counting, but keep high cards or suited cards and gain money off starting with a natural pair.

Blackjack is a bit more skill and probability, but its easier to learn. Wish there was an option to split your hand. *sigh*

The machines aboard the ship are whacked, so you get insane amounts of credits every time. Don't waste your time in the bar.:nana

I've heard reports of it happening on blackjack too, but this was from the Xbox forums, so I don't know how seriously I can take anyone on there since I haven't actually tried it myself.

It never happened on the Black Jack one I played. Not sure what level, maybe 5 or 6 I think.

Maybe not then. I never actually played on any of the other machines because I won blackjack and runeman easily in the bar. Poker was the only one I was having trouble with, so I said the hell with it. Obviously, I ended up finding the machine on the ship which I won easily, of course.
