Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout: New Vegas Achievements

The Courier Who Broke the Bank

Get banned from all the Strip's casinos.  

This achievement will require your LCK stat higher than average. If your LCK stat isn't at least at 7, it would be best to not even attempt this achievement. You can increase your LCK stat at the New Vegas Medical Station, by buying implants from the Doctor there. These implants cost 4000 caps, so be prepared to spend some money.

If you have a high Luck (8+) you'll want to play Blackjack, as you'll be dealt good hands almost all the time. To help improve your odds using any method, you'll want to be wearing Naughty Nightwear (+1 LCK) and possibly buy the Probability Calculator (+1 LCK) from the New Vegas Clinic.

You need to win the following amount of money from each Casino:

  • 9,000- Gomorrah
  • 10,000- The Tops
  • 15,000- Ultra Luxe

Looks like the casinos will ban you from the table when you've won around 10k.

Easiest way to do this by far is to save before you enter the table, back out and save if you win a good amount, and load if you lose too much.

Above method will work, but just remember that there is an "Anti-cheating" feature where if you reload a save you can't gamble for a minute. A minor inconvenience at most.

Luck helps a lot. I have luck 10 and I only lost a couple of times between the three casinos. A good strategy would be to get luck 9 or 10 and the get about 5000 chips. Then go to a blackjack table, bet max (sadly only 200) and keep hitting double down, staying only on 20. You should win almost every time and it takes about 30 minutes to get banned from all of the casinos.

Am I the only one that has had this achievement bug? I have 9 luck and wear "Naughty Nightwear" which I believe is +1 luck and +10 speech. I just play blackjack double down a lot and hardly lose. Anyways, I got kicked out of my last casino the "Ultra-Luze" I believe is the name. Anyways waited for cheeb to pop and nothing. I've been banned from the tops, got the high rollers key and all, and at the Gommarah, gave me some combat reinforced armor right before I got banned. Also I have been banned from the Atomic wrangler along with done every quest in there. So I don't know what gives. I would hate to have to re-roll to get this cheeb but looks that way. Oh well...

What are all the casinos you have to get banned from?

Comment #7 by 13ip0lar
Friday, October 29, 2010 @ 01:26:06 AM

@ TerrorSavage, it says strip casinos, so only those on the strip (Gommorah, Tops, and the Ultra-Luxe). If you bugged the achievement like I did you can re-roll and do it in about 90 minutes. I wrote a mini guide on my 90 minute adventure to get the cheeb.

Monday, November 01, 2010 @ 12:14:14 PM

only thing you really need to know to get this achievement is:
Get Luck 10, when you create your character. (or 9 and and buy a luck rank from New Vegas Medical Clinic for 4000)

You only get banned from gambling in the casinos, you can still roam around the casinos, so this is a rather good way to get money when you 1st arrive in to new vegas.

If you dont have the 2000 bottle caps needed to enter the strip, go get banned from gambling in atomic wrangler. :) or buy the pass for 500 bottle caps from Freeside from Mick and W/E it was.

@10 They are all about the same, the Ulta-Luxe is only "Harder" because
it has a higher win cap.

Very easy. get your luck to 10. Double down on anything 10 and over, stay on 20.

to add 1 point to your luck you could also by the naughty nightwear in the secret inventory of Mick and Ralphs

Friday, December 17, 2010 @ 01:29:10 AM

Nothing new to add really except obviously a luck of 10 is amazingly helpful but a luck of at least 8 is sufficient, especialy when playing Blackjack.

it will still let me gamble but i need the chips to do it

Any way of doing it without a high luck skill? I reckon I'm in for the long haul on this one....

Comment #18 by SDHoneymonster
Thursday, December 23, 2010 @ 06:25:57 PM

Just got it. You seem to have to win more at the Ultra Luxe than at the Tops and Gomorrah - I had to win 15k at UL as opposed to 10k at the others.

Comment #19 by SDHoneymonster
Thursday, December 23, 2010 @ 06:27:19 PM

and @magshen - I found the easiest way to get on the Strip was to complete GI Blues and then ask the King to get me on as a favour. It's an easy quest and you don't have to pay a cap. Result!

Comment #20 by Kamakozei
Saturday, December 25, 2010 @ 06:15:10 PM

maybe there's a way to re open the lucky 38, I was walking in the strip and a NCR Trooper said " I hope that they re-open the Lucky 38". Or maybe there will be a dlcc expanding the strip, Who knows?

Comment #21 by DrDaggers
Tuesday, December 28, 2010 @ 04:25:15 PM

Had to make a new character for this achievement. My third play through to
clean up the last achievements. 10 luck you can do this with your eyes
closed, even if you get two face cards, and hit double down.. you'll usually
get an ace. Simple.

Ultra Luxe is 15,000, the Tops is 10,000 and Gomarrah is 9,000 caps. have fun =]

Comment #25 by Skelebone
Monday, January 24, 2011 @ 06:44:18 PM

Having a good luck stat for this is key. I was playing blackjack at the casinos and struggled for ninety minutes to get up 2000 caps (betting the table maximum) through smart odds-on plays. I took advice from this thread and bought the luck add-on and the Naughty Nightwear to improve my luck, returned to the casinos, and was banned from all three of them within 90 minutes total (and walked away 34,000 caps richer).

Also, if you don't have perfect luck, knowing when to surrender after the deal to only lose half your bet is a great way to mitigate your losses.

Comment #26 by ACDC LIVE
Thursday, January 27, 2011 @ 10:45:42 PM

Is there still a way to gamble at a casino if the guards are hostile toward you? Do i need to kill all of the Omerta thugs at the Gamorrah or will they eventually go back to friendly/neutral towards me?

Comment #27 by Skelebone
Tuesday, February 01, 2011 @ 01:51:45 PM

Good question on the hostility. I think since the Omertas aren't a faction with which you have a reputation, you might be able to smooth things over with them by staying away for a couple of days, and then return to see if they've calmed down. Just remember that if you kill the cashier in the cage, there is no way to cash out or get more chips. If staying away doesn't calm them down, you're going to have to load a previous save.

Comment #29 by antigin
Tuesday, February 15, 2011 @ 07:51:10 AM

great solution) Have this achievement also in about 90 minutes, but without reloadinds, damage taken and even without shooting to anybody. That's great trick to start an easy game (I mean lots of money and reinforced combat armor).

@Browny Bram,
Gomorrah 9000
The Tops 10000
Ultra-Luxe 15000

the ultra luxe is harder cos there is no slot machines which you can get banned from 1 spin if u get lucky

Comment #32 by monkeycatt
Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 05:57:45 PM

with luck 9 and the naughty nightwear (+1 luck), head to the casinos and play ONLY blackjack. double down on any and everything except 20 (which you should stay). repeat this for all the casinos and you'll have the achievement in less than an hour.

Comment #33 by Koomapotilas
Monday, March 28, 2011 @ 03:15:22 PM

Luck 6 at the beginning + luck implant + Naughty Nightwear was enough for me to get this achievement. Played the slots at Gomorrah and the Tops. In Ultra-Luxe had to play blackjack since the roulette "avoids" the number you bet. Roulette might work better with luck 9 or 10. I recommend blackjack over roulette though.

Comment #34 by grimjack352
Friday, April 08, 2011 @ 10:33:47 AM

If you really want to break the bank, start playing blackjack until you get close to the max for each casino(for example, Tops max=10000, stop playing at 9500) and then switch to slots, betting max. With a high luck(I had 9), it shouldn't take long to hit the jackpot. Not sure what the max jackpot is on slots, but the one I hit at the Tops was 16000 caps. I got banned from Gomorrah with 16000 caps and the Tops with 25000 caps .

Comment #35 by Mariachi 43
Tuesday, April 19, 2011 @ 02:55:28 PM

According to the Fallout wiki page, there is an alternate method to obtain this achievement I haven't seen anyone reference yet. Simply use the slot machines and bet the maximum until you run out of chips. If you hit the Jackpot, its around 32,000 caps I believe, which will get you booted from the casino. This strategy however only works for the Gommorrah and The Tops because the Ultra Luxe does not have slot machine. If you run out chips, simply reload your save and blow all them all again. As previously mentioned, I'm pretty sure the LCK stat plays into slots as well.

Thursday, May 26, 2011 @ 11:22:02 AM

slots is one of the best ways to get loads of caps i used it in the Atomic Wrangler to and got banned from there! its alos handy to go in there if u wana rush this achievement at the start of the game and get the caps to get into the strip ( if you had low speech like me and cudnt get the passport for 500 caps )I started a new game to get this (put my luck up to 10 ) and got to the Strip really fast just rush through the whole thing until you get there.

Comment #40 by Hobo Brawler
Friday, June 03, 2011 @ 06:35:54 AM

Comment #41 by Hobo Brawler
Friday, June 03, 2011 @ 06:37:14 AM

EDIT: and double down on anything over 10 cause you almost always win those (this has already been said, i'm just confirming the method)

Comment #43 by xilawlerix
Sunday, June 19, 2011 @ 03:25:03 PM

Depending on if you want this achievement fast or not, simply start a new game and on the doctor's tester machine put you're luck all the way to 10 (you need 10 luck for this Achievement) after that i would advise you to mayb to 3-5 missions for XP and put all of you're points on science, that way you can convince the robot at the door of the strip to let you in without paying him and without doing the mission for the kings. You will need around 80 science for this. Then once inside the strip play black jack as it is the easiest to get this Achievement, when playing simply double down on anything 10 or over and you will win for sure. Keep this up till the floor manger of the casino say's something like ''Okay buddy you've had enough time to leave'' then a message will come up saying ''you

part 2:
''you have been banned from the casino'' just move on to the next and do the same process. You should get this achievement in about one hour if that.

and the missions i mean like the main missions where you get about 1300 xp just do them till you get 80 in science

I find double downing on a 10 is stupid >.< I always get boned even with 10 luck.
I always double down on 11 because for me it seems to be the only way to get a 10 or face card from doubling down.

Monday, July 04, 2011 @ 02:58:36 PM

Comment #48 by MoosesDontMoo
Wednesday, July 20, 2011 @ 12:25:24 AM

it's really easy if you have high luck and just keep playing blackjack. when you win around 8-9k save and hit the roulette table and max bet on any specific number i typically pick 17 black as it's my "lucky" number. if your number fails just reload.

Comment #54 by asylumspadez
Wednesday, December 21, 2011 @ 09:09:19 AM

1. Buy 1000 chips
2. Go to blackjack table and save
3. Play blackjack and place maximum bet (200) on each hand, Play 2-3 hands. If you win a lot (400-600) then exit and save. If you lose a lot then simply reload your save before you started playing blackjack.
4. Keep playing and you will eventually get kicked out when your winnings get at 9000 chips or more.

Takes about an hour or so for each casino and its by far the easiest way imo.

Hey everyone, I've a little problem with this. I got banned from the gomorrah and the ultra luxe and when I wanted to gamble at the tops I couldn't because I was banned there already! Without gambling! WTF!? Is it because I already finished "the house always wins II" where I had a firefight with benny's guys before?

Slots is the way to go. Just got banned from Gamorrah after hitting the jackpot twice. Took about 15 minutes. Netted just over $16,000 in caps. Now off to The Tops and Ultra Luxe!

BTW, my luck is only 6 plus wearing naughty nightwear brings it to 7.

i found this one easy all i did was start the game with a person that was at about 7 luck then as i made my way to the strip i leveled it up using a perks that you get to level up special attributes. then when it was at 10 i grabed the nauty night wear that is sold at mic and ralfs. witch made my luck 11 then went to the strip played some slots first then went to black jack for the rest of the time. didnt take as long as i thought it would.

I have the same problem with achievement not unlocking. Been cut off at all casinos on strip and the silver rush and not unlocking. even cashed the chips in. Anyone know whats up?

Comment #63 by HavfruenArild
Sunday, December 02, 2012 @ 11:18:00 AM

For everyone who has problems with the tops casino, read this:

If the tops happens to be your enemies and start to shoot you when you enter. Don`t be afraid. You can still unlock the achievement.

What I did was run like fuck upstairs and try to catch up to the lady that gives you chips. If you don`t see her run around the casino(not shooting or attacking anyone) until you find her.(The tops cashier or something.)

Ask her for chips and she will top and talk to you and give you chips. Now run down to a blackjack table and start playing. As long as you keep pressing "play blackjack" when the manager stops you to give you things you can keep playing without the guards attacking you.

Play until you have 10k and when you get stopped from playing after the 10k run out without attacki

Sunday, December 30, 2012 @ 08:58:07 AM

This achievement is a little bit glitched. For some reason I did not get it on my first playthrough even though I got banned from all three casinos (and even Atomic Wrangler). After that I started a new game with Luck of 10 and rushed to the Strip and got the achievement.

Here are some quick tips to make this achievement easy. Have luck of 9 or 10 (or even 7 or 8 but you need to work somewhat more and should have basic understanding of Blackjack). When the to cards you get equals
1-8: Deal normally
9-18: Double Down
19-20: Stay
