Slot Machines

I dont wanna sound melodramatic but, i am very angry and upset with the achievement that requires you to win 10,000 coins! I have been working on it for weeks now and over 40 hours of my gameplay time has been at the slot machine! I am so, SOOOOOO frustrated! THIS ISNT FAIR!!! WOT A SHIT ACHIEVEMENT! It is also the one achievement that has stopped me getting 100%

Get a rubber band, buy a bunch of coins, save game, find hot slot machine, rubber band controller to auto play, go to work/school/movie/sleep/etc, when you come back if you have more coins than you started with save and start again, if you have less coins reload your earlier save and start again.

I've done this achievement in both ways... doing the slots only, and doing the Chocobo Races. Even with just a Silver Chocobo that has been leveled using nothing but Potents, with NO INFUSED MONSTERS, that Silver Chocobo will net you around two thousand to three thousand Gil per career (this is accounting for just running "600m races" and not sticking solely to the Fal'cie Class Races when they unlock, if you run Derbys and 1200m+ races, and all Fal'Cie Class, you'll get almost five thousand Gil). You can earn the achievement in less than five runs through the races... which you'll want to do, anyway, for the Dark Matter needed for Gilgamesh Gloves, Helms and Shields, and Adamantite. It took me less than an hour, but I was running with the game speed set to "x2".

Doing the slots, and I wish I were joking, took four full days before I got lucky, and came up ahead by eleven thousand Casino Coins. I did the "Rubber band trick", and would wake up with dozens of "Lucky 7 mode!"s activated during my attempt... but never got the achievement (and yes, I would step out of the slot machine afterwards...) until the fourth day.

But, do whatever you want to do. Some people don't have the patience for Chocobo Racing, and having to level up a Silver Chocobo. After getting all my Casino Coins, I went full tilt and built a fully infused Silver Chocobo, which I later used to get every single Title (minus "Underdog", which required a specially built White Chocobo), and all the Monster Adornments attached to said Titles.

It's what we at Gamefaqs called the "Rule of Rant". Basically, when you post a rant about something, for instance, a rare item you want to drop in a game, shortly after your post, you'll get that item.

Congrats on getting your achievement!

The one achievement that's stopping you from 100 percent... That's weird. You need the lucky coin fragment for the collect all fragments achievement, and you need all fragments to see the secret ending. So you're missing at least three achievements by my count.

Anyways, back on topic. It took me 1587 manual turns on the slot machines to gain the 7777 coins required for the lucky coin fragment. Roughly two hours. The woman near the machine said "this machine's on fire". That was in one sitting. The guide is very clear on this. When the machine is in a good mood you have more chances of winning. However in the piggyback guide it says that for the slotmachine to actually become profitable you have to invest entire parts of the day, say the entire morning, not play for a few hours, and try again later. So like me, you are just terribly unlucky and will have to spend several hours, many hundreds of turns, to get this.

This was said before, but the chocobo races is a much more productive way of boosting this.

Actually, this achievement was actually standing in my way for the 100% completion. The only other two achievements to get were Defragmented and The paradox endings, which, not getting the Lucky Coin was stopping me from getting!

Yeah the damn slot machines just didn't work out at all for me until tonight where finally after about at least 20 hours up till now I got a couple of jackpots stringed together to get the serendipitous achievement. The lucky coin had actually come up for me relatively quickly but I just didn't feel like going through the chocobo races and just went for the achievement through the slots. Took hella long but at least I could keep at it while doing other things and not really paying attention.

Try the Chobocco races, you'll get the achievement a lot faster that way. I still haven't got the "A lucky coin" fragment after letting the slot machine run for hours, these machines are a pain.

The rubber band method worked very quickly for me. First, I only got on the machine when the odds are the best. I let it auto-play but kept a close watch. When it played till victory or super-victory mode, I took over and manually played to increase the chances of getting the jackpots. Of course, luck is a very crucial factor here as well.

Attempting this now.

FUCK THIS FRAGMENT. I'VE SET THIS THING TO AUTOPLAY FIVE NIGHTS IN A ROW AND I STILL HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT.

Treat me nicely, oh rule of rant.

Oh man... that was awesome to the Nth degree. I hope you get the fragment now, just for making me have my biggest laugh of the day. +10 internet points to you, good sir.

Oh, don't get me wrong... I know you were being serious. It's just the way you worded your rant, that made me laugh. Not you, or your situation. Trust me, I've been there... I HATED trying to get the Lucky Coin fragment, and regret the days wasted trying to make it happen.

I wish you luck man. Though, still... the way you said it... it was funny, to my twisted mind, at least. Could be due to all the ~unfunny~ ranting about stupid things I see on Gamefaqs these days, that an honest to goodness rant just tickled my sense of humor.

Ah, I see. Appreciate the well wishes. Might have worked too.

Finally got the fragment about twenty minutes ago. Searched through Gamefaqs and there were a few topics suggesting that you close the gate for the casino, because of the "Beginner's Luck" mentioned by the poorly voiced catgirl. Completely uncertain if that played even the smallest part in receiving this fragment, but this was the only time that I've actually hit the Ochu on the reels (along with six other jackpots) and it only took an hour as apposed to the 48-ish spent overnight.

Or it could have been the rule of rant. Venting is good for the mind either way.

See? Ranting works every time. You have to feed the gaming deity your tears of frustration, and you'll be rewarded for your suffering.

But seriously, congrats man. Are you at 100% now?

Course. Turned on that Clock Master fragment skill and rebeat the final boss(es) while speaking like a hyperactive chipmonk.

It was kinda funny how isn't sped up at all during the first scene. Even Clock Master can't change the fact he's a smooth man.

ACTUALLY, the calculation for the 7777 coins works very different from the achievement. For the 7777, it appears after you ACCUMULATE 7777 coins, no matter how much you have lost, just the gain in general.
For the achievement, you have to be on top with 10,000

After 4853 turns from auto playing, I'm still trying to get this achievement myself, and Clock Stopper.

It took me 6 hours to finally get the 'lucky coin" fragment. Yes, I used the rubber band method and watched as my 20k disappeared into oblivion. NOTE to people who still need the 10k winnings achievement ... Do the chocobo racing 1st to get that particular achievement. I didn't bother to read up on the details on this achievement until it was too late and ended up spending a couple of hours racing chocobos to get the 10k achievement ... because ... I had played the slot machine earlier and lost a lot of coins. The achievement requires 10k in total earnings to date, so losing 10k beforehand at the slot machine is very bad. For me, my silver chocobo won over 9k in his career and something similar for my Golden chocobo. Goldie had some good racing abilities, but he was better suited for 1200m rather than 600m. Silver Chocobo is the way to go since he is well suited for the shorter races. Also, remember to wager 100 gil on Silver each race to maximize your earnings, but be sure not to lose!

As for the "lucky coin" fragment, I have read alot about it. My own experience is that it doesn't matter how much you lose. Also, I can't say for sure, but I am almost certain that non-777 winnings DO NOT count towards this fragment. I believe only the earnings you get from landing a 7-7-7 are counted (i.e.: 250, 500, 5000 gil winnings).
