Final Fantasy XIII-2 Achievements

Serendipitous

12
Amassed a fortune in casino coins.

You will need to have winnings of 10,000 Casino Coins for this achievement to unlock. This requires that you be UP 10k, so even if you've won 10k, but spent 2k doing it, that means you're at 8k worth of winnings. You can win the coins via the races or the slot machines, but I would suggest using the slot machines to do this, since you need to spend some time there to earn the "Lucky Coin" fragment anyway (by earning a total of 7,777 Casino Coins at the slot machines) and the chocobo races can be extremely tedious.

The easiest way to do this would be to save your game, buy a large amount of coins from the exchange, then rubber band your to have the machine auto-play. Check back later and see if you got your fragment or this achievement. If you've run out of coins without getting either, reload your save and try again later.

Some extra slot machine tips can be found here. Note that the achievement will only unlock once you exit the slot machine. If you're having absolutely no luck with the slot machines, you can do the chocobo races. A good guide for doing them quickly can be found here.

Who knows how long this will take? The only options are Chocobo races and slots; nothing else not available yet. I keep getting the same result in slots, too, no matter how I push the buttons. Over 200 times playing and I'm down 500 chips. I thought if you had a FFXIII save you get better odds at the Serendipity Casino?

Its 10k coins, best option is to just wait til the end of the game and sell all your stuff then hold the left bumper til you either run out or get enough, if you don't get it the first try just re-load your save and try again. You'll also get an artifact on the way.

I assume spending 100,000 Gil (10 Gil = 1 casino coin) would just buy the achievement for yourself, yes? I'm 99% positive I have no interest in playing the dumb slot machine that long...

I can verify that simply having 10k coins does not work. After losing about a hundred chocobo races I got tired and I purchased 5800 coins to get me up to the 10k required for a Wild Artefact. The achievement did not pop. Alot of the coins I had came from Casino tickets. Might have to win all 10k.. that sucks.

#4, that's extremely disappointing... I was really hoping to take the lazy way out on this one.

#5, he meant the slot machine. Left bumper is the auto-play option.

We ARE positive it's 10k, right?

i got the fragment for getting 7777 coins in the slots, (took over 2000 pulls. just set it on auto and taped it. was back to about the same as what i started at when i finihsed) and i won over 3000 in the chocobo races with one chocobo and i have no achievement. dont know why. i also tried buying the coins. didnt work for me either.

Comment #8 by FinDeepdelver
Sunday, February 05, 2012 @ 04:14:05 AM

im thinking it might be 100k or so but who knows

Comment #9 by FinDeepdelver
Sunday, February 05, 2012 @ 04:50:38 AM

you have to win 10k coins from slots in 1 go or else it wont work so if u start off with 5k coins u must end with 15k coins

Comment #10 by Russsian mule
Sunday, February 05, 2012 @ 06:22:03 AM

It IS 10k. Just got it today. I would recommend playing the slots because you can tie a rubber band around the Left bumper and go to bed. I did that, I started with 7000 coins and got 60000 coins (you have to exit the machine). I would also recommend doing this if you're after ever fragment because The Lucky coin fragment can only be unlocked by get the 7 7 7 on the fruit machine.

Comment #11 by aarondgr81
Sunday, February 05, 2012 @ 06:35:01 AM

so it has to be a profit. chocobo races are the best way to go. get a silver chocobo and level it all the way and use it. when you get to the point you cant win take it out and re-register it. slot machine you would have to be really lucky. If you start with 5k and you win 10k but lose 4k it only counts for 6k

Sunday, February 05, 2012 @ 12:46:35 PM

I must agree this achievement is a pain...even with taping my RB button...I'm taping the controller as I speak and so far I got 2 7 7 7 jackpots

Comment #13 by Inamorta vZ
Sunday, February 05, 2012 @ 02:45:44 PM

You will need to earn 10,000 coins at one "session" at the slot machine. This means you cannot back out of the game once you have started or the total coins you have earned will reset to 0. A good way to earn this is to tape your controller over the LB button and hope that overnight your luck will give you this achievement.
Make sure you have 10,000 more coins than you started with before you back out. There are rumors stating that returning Final Fantasy XIII players will be 30% luckier on the slot machines. Also, the Official US strategy guide states that anyone who uses autoplay has 30% less luck.

I really don't know much about the chocobo races though...

i'm trying for this achievement as well, im just popping into the casino and checking with the aide there to see if the condition is "it's like a hot summer's day", cause the strategy guide for this says that if you get this condition for the machine autoplay profits are 99%, and manual is 130% profit payout, just hoping for this then taping my controller. BTW is 2,500 casino coins enough to try that overnight trick with the slots? i havent used my tickets yet

Monday, February 06, 2012 @ 03:49:57 PM

You can get this using chocobo racing (at least it unlocked after i did the races). If you get a silver chocobo and level it up and infuse it with lv 1 pulse gladiator, cactuar, Catepillar, and Lvl 24 Microchu. set the strategy to the last one (hold back) and you'll win all but the top tier races.

I'll just use the slots to get the lucky fragment and then use the choco races for this achievement. Luck based mini-games and whoever comes up whith them can kiss my ass.

Comment #42 by FinDeepdelver
Tuesday, February 07, 2012 @ 06:00:22 AM

u can only get the fragment from the slots lol and }#38 i can win all but the top teir in chocobo races but i can win the 600m in the races tho with a silver chocobo withoout a cactuar and catepillar and question they a cactuar and catepillar?

Comment #43 by Hunter_D86
Tuesday, February 07, 2012 @ 10:18:19 PM

What's better machine is on fire or feels like a warm sunny day?

Also I got the achievement and fragment in one sitting with just 2000 coins and 675 total turns, seems like jackpots pop up more when you have less cash. And what do the flashing arrows mean?

Comment #45 by EliteXPhoenix
Thursday, February 09, 2012 @ 03:04:12 AM

IS this achievement glitched, i got 2 super jackpots, if its 10k, then 2 at 100 x 50 = 5000 would be over after already 7490 turns, and i haven't earned this achievement

Comment #46 by P1 Sephiroth
Thursday, February 09, 2012 @ 07:10:21 AM

i would advise ppl to do the slots just for the fragment, then try and earn your coins from races, if u get the gold choc maxed out at lvl 45 this should be easy, if your worried about how to get gil fast then follow this:
little tip for everyone trying for 100% on this game, post game you can close academia 500af's gate, then go straight for the ! fight the boss for the chance of ingots and scarletites, the worst drops i have got is 1 scarletite (sells for 18,700) and the best is 2 scar's and 2 ingots (ingots sells for 55,000)(gil prices are with haggle on) once battle is done go to HC open gate, then close it again ..... rinse and repeat ... easy money for monster upgrades and casino fragments!!

Comment #47 by aarondgr81
Thursday, February 09, 2012 @ 07:16:32 PM

you people arent thinking right for the achievement or fragment. some are saying you need 10 777 to get the fragment. thats wrong. you need to earn 7777 in the slots. also you need to leave the slot machine to get the achievement. it doesnt need to all be in one session. i got 7777 in the slots and about 3000 in the races and got the achievement. for the races you need to take the chocobo out for it to count. for the slots just tape the lb button down. took about 2500 turns for me to get the fragment. went in with 16k coins and came out with 14k.

Comment #48 by Entity
Friday, February 10, 2012 @ 02:06:39 AM

The advice by #47 is awesome except for one thing. Please do not do such a horrid deed to your controller. Taping it will make it sticky forever. That is disgusting. Just use a clean rubber band that is sticky free.

Comment #49 by P1 Sephiroth
Friday, February 10, 2012 @ 09:42:31 AM

got some advice for the ochu's on slots, i played while ON FIRE maunal, i nkow its annoying but odds are better, now just bet max that it will allow u and if u bust out just save (i know u loose your lost coins but it worked for me) and quit to main menu, then reload and get the machine ON FIRE again then rinse and repeat, finnally after 2 quit outs i got the damn ochu's, i hit them while in jackpot (bonus) in super victoy mode, if u get to this your good as you will get at least 9's for 5000, + don't forget to bet max, and i did not have ff13 save for 10% luck bonus

Comment #50 by FinDeepdelver
Friday, February 10, 2012 @ 01:00:17 PM

i dont believe that 10% luck bonus if u have a ff13 save i have a save and it took forever to even get the fragment and i still dont have the achievement i went in with 20k coins i came out with like 7k just for the dang fragment

Comment #51 by P1 Sephiroth
Friday, February 10, 2012 @ 01:30:15 PM

@50 have you been doing auto or manual?

Comment #52 by FinDeepdelver
Friday, February 10, 2012 @ 01:36:29 PM

and also u cant just use a gold chocobo without anything infused in it can u?

Comment #53 by FinDeepdelver
Friday, February 10, 2012 @ 01:43:19 PM

haha i used auto

Comment #54 by FinDeepdelver
Friday, February 10, 2012 @ 01:44:55 PM

i have tried manual also i didn't get shit then either

Comment #55 by MJAussie360
Saturday, February 11, 2012 @ 04:46:00 PM

Well its either glitched or more than 10k in one session.
I went in with 9k, machine on fire mood and now I have 32k chips.

So my game is either glitched or some people are smoking crack.

Comment #56 by FinDeepdelver
Saturday, February 11, 2012 @ 06:05:49 PM

u have to exit the machine and it is easier to do it in the chocobo races

Comment #57 by mtbizzle
Saturday, February 11, 2012 @ 06:57:51 PM

I just did this, I'll reiterate a point that has been made above though...
DONT DO SLOTS!
I did less than 2 careers (maybe an hour and ten minutes) in chocobo races (after getting sliver chocobo leveled up, w/ pulse gladiatorµchu, no cactaur).

Comment #58 by Panda Man
Saturday, February 11, 2012 @ 11:46:53 PM

Agreed Don't do slots only for fragment, I wasted hours there!

Did Chocobo races, and within a hour or 2 got it :DD now I'm 1000/1000GS :3

I've tried for hours for this dang achievement!!!

Comment #61 by FinDeepdelver
Monday, February 13, 2012 @ 01:34:51 AM

just fully level up a golden chocobo and go for the high coin reward u can easily get 5k+ in 1 go around just retire it after all of the points are up and do it again and ur done u got it or u can use a Silver Chocobo but i will say a gold is easier

Comment #62 by hamsterballl

The only way to get this is through slots?

Comment #65 by kashi009
Monday, February 13, 2012 @ 11:55:54 PM

As #57 says dont use the slots tho i got lucky and got my 20,000 back somehow by getting 14 triple 7s. i JUST got it from the chocobo racing while working towards getting the title for 3,000 and i know i had gotten at least 4,000 from racing before.

Comment #66 by Marmite
Tuesday, February 14, 2012 @ 01:41:04 AM

The mood of the machine makes no difference imo. You have to win over 7777 coins to unlock the achievement. And the jackpot icons are 3 red 9's, not 7's.. 999. Auto-play diminishes your odds.

To get 3 Ochu's in normal mode your odds are 1 in 1.7 million on a bad mood or 1 in 69,601 for a good mood. to get jackpot (999) in normal mode your odds in a good mood is 1 in 3,632, bad mood its 1 198,303.

Machine profitability: Manuel play bad mood 95%, Auto-play its 71%. Good mood for manuel and auto-play its 130% and 99% respectively.

Best way to earn lots of money to spend in serendipity is to first have the bargain hunter fragment (25% cheaper shop prices) and beat Yomi on the archylt steppe, you get 40,000 CP and 48,000 Gil per fight. First time beating him you get an aditional 30,000 CP.

Comment #68 by Con Foxy
Tuesday, February 14, 2012 @ 11:40:08 AM

Just got this achievement and I'd tell you to make sure it's the last one you need. I infused every monster I had into my top leveled Golden Chocobo (Make sure you're next to the lady and save it before infusing) and had the Fragment skill on which makes time go fast and won an entire career in chocobo racing and I unlocked the achievement after retrieving my chocobo :) Hope this helps!

Really Slots was fine i got 5 jackpots in a row.. victory then super then Jackpot after jackpot so slots are fine I got it after 5 mins

Comment #70 by TesGodLuke
Wednesday, February 15, 2012 @ 07:08:27 AM

I got the achievement just there and I got up to 6830 coins(not in the one sitting) while at the races, I used a maxed out Silver Chocobo(lv 45) and just put on Chocobulls and the other thing (chocoblasts?) to keep his condition on the highest level, hopefully that helps

Comment #71 by macd
Friday, February 17, 2012 @ 02:16:26 PM

I definitely think that it was quicker to do Chocobo racing. It took me ages to even get a "machine on fire" on Slots. And 3 or 4 attempts before I even ended up at all profiting.

Chocobo took me about an hour and a half to get the Chocobo to max level and make enough money to cover what I had not won on slots. And that was coming from not having any of the monsters required and having close to none of the levelling materials.

Comment #72 by Dangerous Brian
Friday, February 17, 2012 @ 07:01:58 PM

Forget slots, Chocobo all the way to the bank.

Comment #73 by shibloble
Saturday, February 18, 2012 @ 11:34:01 PM

If your going to race silver chocobo's the way to go. Max it out only using potent's. Infuse with a lvl 1 Pulsework Gladiator, lvl 14 Reaver/Cactaur, and lvl 24 Microchu.

Enter the silver chocobo into the races, select option 4, always stay behind.
Save boost until blue streak starts and boost away. 600m races are the easiest to win with this method.

The reaver/Cactaur are very important to infuse into the chocobo, other wise secret races in fal'cie are very hard, if not impossible.

After a career and a half (maybe less) you should have the achievement.

Hope this helps someone out there.

Comment #74 by MidnightSurgeon
Thursday, February 23, 2012 @ 04:12:46 AM

Only achievement I'm missing. I've had no luck with slots so I'll probably try the chocobo racing.

Comment #75 by GameGrinderz
Saturday, February 25, 2012 @ 06:34:52 AM

Horrible! I got mad the first time I tried it so I quit.... When I went back I actually got lucky and got the fragment for 7777 coins. That took me about 1500 pulls though.

For the achievement I did the chocobo races with the silver chocobo with the infusions listed above and got it quickly. I didn't win every race either.... I just always bet on the one I thought would win.

Comment #76 by GameGrinderz
Saturday, February 25, 2012 @ 06:37:49 AM

I also noticed no difference in the "mood" of the machine. The best are "it's on fire" and "it's like a hot summers day" but it didn't seem to matter for me!

Comment #77 by Hrith
Wednesday, February 29, 2012 @ 02:32:37 AM

One good tip: when you achieve Super Victory Mode, exit the machine and save. As long as you do not return to the dashboard or switch off the console, the Super Victory Mode will remain. In that mode, getting 7-7-7 nets you 5,000 coins and it happens often (and happens automatically once you have spent 5,000 coins, so nothing lost), The only way to exit Super Victory Mode is to get three Mogs a few times, If that happens, load your save.

Doing that, I got the achievement and the Lucky Coin fragment in one session of about twenty minutes.
Of course, you do need to get Super Victory Mode first, which could take hours, but I just taped the LB button for that and did something else in the mean time >_>

Comment #78 by v Hankyy x
Sunday, March 11, 2012 @ 01:14:11 PM

Best bet get a silver or gold chocobo then just upgrade them in the crystarium then bet on your own chocobo your guaranteed about 500+ every race including winnings

Comment #79 by Distractor08
Monday, March 12, 2012 @ 03:14:34 PM

Just got the achievement and here are some tips that I used.
1. Play the slots but make sure u save first before doing it so u can reset if u lost a ton of coins.
2. Play the slots on a "It's like a hot summer day." It is the best way to earn the jackpot.
3. Hold lb till u are able to hit superjackpot mode. Afterwards do it manually from what I heard.
4. You can leave the slots and save during superjackpot mode. It will stay in that mode even if u left as long as you don't leave the room or went to a different timeline. Gl to all. I think u need 10 or 15k profit.

Monday, March 12, 2012 @ 03:59:11 PM

Just got this achievement. Spent all my time in races (Silver Chocobo maxed, infused with Pulsework Knight and 24 Microchu). The coins that come from Tickets DO NOT COUNT! I got the achievement at around 13,000 coins. So, you have to EARN them.

Comment #81 by CesarianAlex
Thursday, March 15, 2012 @ 10:18:07 AM

I just got this on a machine "on fire". Started with only 6300 but got the minichu's 2 times, where one was in Super Victory Mode (50.000 points in one go), and the 7's 6 times. The achievement popped as I left the machine. All of this in just 791 pulls! Btw: the 7-fragment came after I got the 7's only 4 times. I know this is the lucky way to get it, but it shows that it's possible.

Comment #82 by BrownBomber
Friday, March 16, 2012 @ 04:43:53 AM

Either method works here but, I found it more entertaining to do the Chocobo Races. Found an excellent guide for an amazing Chocobo. Recommended for late game only though as the components used are expensive. If you have the time try the following:

Level a White Chocobo to 99, infuse in order 35 Microchu -> 24 Tonberry -> 22 Goblin Chieftan -> 1 Cactaur. This will ensure your Chocobo always has a favorable condition and will always sprint in short races. I have won all classes through Fal'Cie with minimal effort. Achievement popped in 30 minutes of racing with Clock Stopper.

I done every thing. Including leaving my controller jamed up on the slots with 46,000 coins and no achievement i hit the jackpot 47 times over 7,000 spins, so i tried another statagy i spent all my coins in the shop except 100 then done sum chocobo races with my gold chocobo fully leveled up. My max wining wen i had finished were an extra 1,400 coins but i recieved this achievement, my guess was i had eared 100% more coins then wat i started so if ur still stuck give this a try hope it helps. This was also my last achievement spent about 20 hours gameplay on the slots over all and had no luck!

This is easiest done in the chocobo races with high speed
keep doing the low grade races the ones that give out 60 or 80 coins per victory and then bet 100 each time by the time you use all your RP you will have well over 10k coins

I just left it on over night and when i checked this morning i had 40 '777s' in about 11k spins (which sucks D: ) But i didnt get the achievement D: Last time i checked 40 x 250 is 10,000 not to mention all the little winnings inbetween. Whats going on ;-;

I'm guessing you never got to the point where you'd won 10,000 more than you started out with.

At any rate, it might seem like you can manipulate the first two reels, but that only works when it doesn't let you win anything. You cant control the third reel and it keeps tossing weak wins in in between, so manually timing the them is pointless.

Also, I can confirm that you can't get the achievement or the 777 coin in the Heads of Tails DLC.

At least not on the slots, I mean. Haven't tried the tables with high stakes, yet.

Your best bet is Chocobo Racing, if you're after the slot machine fragment then do the rubber/elastic band trick mentioned above when you're gonna be away from the xbox for 2-3 hours, I earned enough coins to get the fragment but I think the coins you spend count in what you earn so you'll only get the achievement if you profit 10K from what you started, follow this video to make the ultimate racing chocobo,you can find it by using Moogle Throw in Academia 4XXAF in Hope's room, throw Mog to the top of the green sphere, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX_b3mjkbQ4

btw the achievement pops after you leave the menu, when your chocobo runs out of RP just Retrieve in then Re-enter it, as long as you don't bet anything and follow the video's instructions and info you'll have this by the time yo

It sucked but I got it from Chocobo racing betting on my own silver chocobo despite the low winning odds ( I think I was mostly 1.5).

Then I went to the slot machines with the rubber band trick for the 7777 fragment. Should have done this first because I hit the straight "9's" 8 times and one of them was during super victory mode.

Oh well, chocobo racing is the slow but sure way to get this.

I wanted to be patient; go for the slots, taping the bumper is no biggie. Man was I wrong!

Do yourself the favor and just breed the silver chocobo and get the achievement within 2-3 hours of farming/racing.


Note: If you had all 60 Fragments like and make sure you use the speed up game time skill and the farming and races will go by even faster!

One of the more frustrating achievements, for sure.

Comment #99 by HylianNarwhal

I second what frazzleberry said. I'd got the fragment on the slot machines, and was just repeating the Cocoon and Monster Class races for the title for winning them all in one chocobo's career.

I was using a Lv. 29 Silver Chocobo with infused Lv. 35 Microchu and Lv. 14 Reaver for the abilities that give you racing bonuses.

And sometimes without using the boost at all you can win without doing anything, but on those lower level races it's pretty much a given streak of 1st place, so though the odds aren't great you do get a return.

Far less tedious with the races when you know it's just a matter of time rather than a matter of luck.

This achievement is bullshit annoying.

I exited with 20,000 coins and got jack shtook and I had less that 10,000 at the start. Never left the slots either.

Here I thought the Monster Professor quest was jarring.

Luck mini games, cryptic side quests and cryptic questions can suck my balls.

I did get the fragment though.

Still have 30/31 achievements and still nothing on this one good lord help us all. -_-

Do i need to have 10K coins or what? I got 10K plus and I got the fragment Lucky Coin but the achievement didn't unlock for me.

I do believe a patch where autoplay doesnt work was loaded. All I know is I would waste 100s of coins straight because the reels would be the same over and over again....especially reel one.

Wake up and leave slots pop acheevo started 10k,

Found slots to be a waste of time. Train your silver chocobo for racing. Mine never lost a race. You can ern lots of coins and gil if you replay the dahaka stakes over and over for collectors catalog. They sell for 11k each! Even if you don't need gil, you can use the gil to buy more coins. You can make a lot of gil and coins really quick with a silver choco. Got this achieve waaaay before end game

Hey guys I'm new here and I really don't know anyone. This is my first submission on this site. So, I have a dilemma. I have gotten every other achievement except for the Serendipitous achievement. I've already gotten the Lucky Coin Fragment which puts me at 7777 coins and I hit the jackpot for 5000 coins on top of that. Am I missing something? I still have not gotten it and I'm doing the chocobo races for extra coins.

Just something extra here... I'm working on getting Xbox Live. Does anyone know if 3.0 speed internet through AT&T gives you lag when playing online? Its my first time.

Thanks.

Well this was an exceedingly irritating achievement to get. Here are a few tips to remember. Mind you - most of this has already been posted at various ends of this site - I'm just collecting it all here.

You need to WIN 10.000 coins. By that I mean if you buy 1000 coins, when you're done you need to have 11.000 coins.

Talk to the girl in front of the slot machine until she says the machine is on fire. You don't necessarily need to return to the historia crux - just keep talking to her - but it might be faster.

Buy more than just, say, a thousand coins. My first try I just got like 2000 coins and regardless of autoplay or manual play I would not get any jackpots. The magic limit seems to be around 15-16.000. I bought 16.000 coins and I had the fragment AND this achievement within

Comment #110 by Pixi
Wednesday, June 05, 2013 @ 07:56:27 AM

(cont)

...AND this achievement within 20 minutes.

Leave it on autoplay if you want. Yeah, the chance of winning is supposedly raised a little if you do it manually but really - I never saw any difference. If anything I felt that autoplay actually increased my chances while in Super Victory Mode since it would cost 100 coins per pull as opposed to 5 coins when doing it by hand.

Trying this after beating the game became an excercise in frustration. So I reloaded an earlier save - before I had set foot in Serendipity - and started from scratch. Doing this I got three 5000 coin jackpots within spitting distance of each other and walked out with the cheevo in no time.

Mind you, it still comes down to luck one way or the other to a degree. But having spent something like 20 hours in

...spent something like 20 hours in there on my post-win save with nothing to show for it I'm inclined to think that you can indeed determine your chances of success. Chocobo's are, of course, an alternative but the farming needed to get your bird to where it can comfortably win seems like a lot of work when compared to the slot machine if used right.

Took half a dozen reloads over a couple of nights but ultimately got it in 2 chunks.

About 7000 up then the last 3000.

Rubber band and reloads with no need to get the full 10k in 1 sitting.
Total RNG but could have been worse.

I would advise Chocobo racing. Get a Silver Chocobo from the moogle throw and then infuse him with certain monsters (Lv 1 Pulse Gladiator, Lv 24 Microchu and Lv 1 Cactuar)and level him up to 45. You should be unbeatable in the 600m races even on secret races on Fal'cie class. You will have to enter him again when his racing points go to zero, but you should get it pretty soon after re-entering him.

I used the slot machine. I guess I got really lucky, but with a combination of the machine feeling sunny, or whatever, and holding LB I got it within ten minutes.

I used this video for assistance, though I did not so much watch the video, as read the description. One thing he does note is to exit to the Historia Crux, not just exit the room, which worked for me.

Does anyone know if this can be done on the tables with Sazh's DLC? If so, that would be the easiest way to get it.

this only took me about 2 hours max....when the lady in-front of the machine says it's a hot summers day, get in as usual and spin for about 5-10mins...If you are getting nowhere come out and ask her again....do this for a bit and you are sorted, no need for overnight palava

Peace
