Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs Achievements


Win 50,000 on a single cockfight.  

Cockfights are displayed on the map as orange roosters,. This is located to the far left of the map, see video below. This achievement is luck based. I suggest making a save just before you speak to the guy in front of the cockfight arena just in case you lose. There are a couple of other cockfight locations. But this one would be the best place to obtain this. The other cockfight arenas have a money cap. Unlike the one in the video you can place a minimum bet of $50,000. 

NOTE: To be able to enter in this cockfight you must first have at least $50,000. As that's the minimum bet you can place. This is also a good way to get quick money.

Man 1: I've Got The Strong Strong Bird!
Man 2: My Birds Always Win!
Man 3: My Cock Is The Best!

Only one will get you the $50,000

This is rigged or something! I got the achievement finally but its bullshit. I swear its set to make you lose almost every time! Like how the hell does a chicken with a six win streak lose to a chicken with zero wins?! Cook my cock! And eat it...

I thought the Witcher 2 gambler achievement was annoying. I dropped 600k on this until I finally won (thank god I didn't have to save after that).

Hey Dr Rocco, I think you are really only winning 30,000. If you're at a location where you can only bet 30,000 the payout is 60,000 but half of that is getting your initial bet back. As someone above mentioned, you need to go to a location where you can bet 50,000 so that winning will have a 100,000 payout.

How stupid can the people writing achievement description be? It says WIN $50K. That means you only have to bet $25K. I did that, won $50K and it didn't pop. Because it really wants you to BET $50K, and win, making it $100K. Yet no achievement guide or video mentions this. Everyone just assumes it means bet $50K and win. Is everyone really this dumb???

Ahh, didn't know you had to go to the one where you bet $50k... Makes more sense now. I won twice in Kennedy betting $30k where you win $60 and didn't get the achievement but now I understand. Thanks guys! :)

That explains it!! I can't believe I've been doing this for a half and hour betting $25K and wondering why it hadn't popped.

Thursday, September 13, 2012 @ 12:49:14 PM

Seems like this one is based on luck, having a big amount of money will make it easier to get the achievement, I only bet the 50,000 on the top left cockfighting spot on the map, bet 2 times, lost them both, bot on the third time got it.

Not trying to be a dick, but if you did bet 25k it's still not actually WINNING 50k... because half of it was yours to begin with^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
So betting 50k makes sense...

This is probably the worst minigame EVER!
lost more than 700.000 on cock fighting , so i have to win back the money first before i can start winning and add to the 1.000.000 total.

Second try with no special technique--I just chose the one that sported the most wins.

bet on the black hen 3 times because the white one had 4 wins so I thought it would be weak, it lost all 3 times, so I bet on the white bird then that lost ! HACKS !

hahah I won at the very first time I tried, I don't know I always choose the one that has more wins.

The white bird almost always wins....until you choose it.

I've won this mini game time and time again with ease while doing it casually, but when I went for the achievement, I had hell to get a win.

Choose the bird with the least wins because he almost always wins in that matter....but it's not fool proof.

Hell, just choose the white bird and grind out, he should win WAY more than the black one regardless if he has less wins or whatever.

I just chose the one with the most wins, which was the white chicken and I got it. First ever cockfight.

Maybe before you come on here to rage about how terrible this achievement is, and now you have to make back the $700,000 you spent trying to get it, you should make sure there isn't an option to instantly reload the game if you fail. Otherwise, people might make fun of you.
