Is there like a trick to this game or something? Cause I really suck. I bet 5 on 5-50 and I rarely win at all. Do I stop it early or let it spin? Please help because I want the unlock all games achievement.

I usually hit the button to spin and then hit it again right away and i seem to do well on most of them....certain ones i let spin like cow and corset, which when you get the one thats like 20-250 or something has been my best one I hit 30 or 40k a couple times on it now. there are some i never hit anything on some are just better.

Hitting the A button a second time doesn't actually change the possible outcome does it? Isn't it like the rest of the games where it just fastforwards until your next turn?

It does nothing everything is total chance and luck which is just WRONG.
I've played and come in second place six damn times, one mashing the button as fast as I can and never getting any big wins and losing to the CPU by 200, mashing the buttons as fast as I can and getting four of those damn sword and shield icons that rewards 1500 and I lost by over 7000 :eek:

I HATE YOU PETER FOR MAKING ME PLAY THIS CRAP :mad:

Whoever came up with this idea (totally random games you have no control over) is an idiot.

I've been playing since yesterday and have accumulated $250k in debt. I kept track on tournaments just to see how they play out. I played 20 tournaments in Spinnerbox:

15 times I ranked 16-20
4 times I ranked 11-15
1 time I ranked 4th

How is that even remotely fair, much less fun and satisfying? And who wants to invest the time in this game when you know that the odds are stacked against you?

My goal is just to get out of debt tbh..I wanted all items and cash... But I just want all items (Which I have) and no debt now..

Spinnerbox, the last one you open where you can bet upto 500 is probably the best to get out of debt with, I used that to rack up 50k gold, of course I ran it out doing the tourney's but ehh, just a thought for everyone.

When you first start playing it don't be discouraged if you rack up an extra 30k in debt before you start heading towards a profit.

Well i was just playing the spinner box 2 tournament, and all i did was mash A until the end.

It worked, i came top with 6600 chips.

All i did, becuase there were 4 hole thingys i just kept hitting A and didnt stop.

I say i won every 2 turns, so i would win about 3 lose 2 then win again.

Try it, it worked for me.

I fell asleep still hitting the a button repeatedly and woke up with profit! Then i used fable magic to transform it into debt.

I think it's HILARIOUS that so many people are pissed that "games of chance" are pure chance. Uhm... they are named as such for a reason. Otherwise they'd be "games of skill". *boggle*

Indeed, that's like buying Madden and bitching on the boards that it's not an RPG.

Never heard the term, "The house always wins," have you?

Remember people, you do not have to win tournaments. You only have to place in them (Top 5) to get the item.

It's really just a matter of time for spinnerbox. Find something else to do while you spam A. I personally was watching TV while hitting A, then periodically refreshing my xbox homepage to see if the Big Spin achievement unlocked.

There is no second table in the Spinnerbox Tournaments...you only have to finish in the Top 5 after your 100 spins to win money and unlock item for that Tournament.

I Vegas that makes sense. In a video game that is being used to promote Fable 2 which the developers want to get you to buy for $60? That's a really bad idea.

As of about a second ago if you pay 40 that is the equivalent of $75.00 US Dollars. So you are paying more for the game than we are.

Now if you were to Pay $60.00 US Dollars for it that would be the equivalnet of 32.17.

Now me, I will gladly pay the $79.99 for my collector's edition. Which would be about 43.00

Oh my bad... Then the highest I've won was 9.
