Serendipity Slot Machine Tips

  1. #1
    If you want to win the Lucky Coin Fragment and the Serendipitious Achievement, do this:
    1. The machine must be in "on fire" or "hot like summers day" condition so that you'll have a higher chance to get the jackpot. Talk to the lady standing near the machine to know the machine's condition.
    2. Buy coins, 5000 is enough
    3. Tape the L1 button so that the machine will autoplay while you do stuff like sleeping, eating, taking a bath, working etc.
    4. If you ran out of coins, exit to the main menu and reload your save file and repeat step 1 to 3

    Mysterious stuff: (Slot Machine Manual Play)
    1. If you press "Circle, Triangle, Square", "Triangle, Circle, Square" or "Circle, Square, Triangle" the result will always be the same. Use this pattern if you want to reset the slot machine's pattern if you don't like the results or if the 7's and the Microchus doesnt appear.
    2. Now if you press "Square, Circle, Triangle" you'll feel like you can adjust what's appearing in the slot machine. Do this if you want the 7's and Microchus to appear often. If they now appear more often, its time to tape that L1 button. (I did this method, and I got the Lucky Coin Fragment and the Serendipitous Achievement not more than 3 mins)
    3. If you hear a "chime" (other stuff like lights while the machine is spinning) after pulling the lever you will always get "3 moggles". "3 chocobos" or even "3 cactuars" in any pattern (BTW there are 2 kinds of chimes, what I've mentioned is the common chime)

    Well that's what I've observed so far. Feel free to share some tips.

    Cheers!

    I have a tip for the slot machines.





    SET THEM ALL ON FIRE.





    Worst. Slotmachineminigame. Ever.

    I tried them for an hour trying to figure out some kind of pattern. In the end I just gave up and put a rubber band around the button and let it play itself for a few hours.

    Always start with ON FIRE, not on A HOT SUMMER'S DAY. When you play the casino with ON FIRE, it will switch to HOT SUMMER'S DAY. When you play the casino on A HOT SUMMER'S DAY, it will sitch to ON FIRE.





    You can check this by quitting the machine and try talking to the lady again.





    Also, I got my Fragment after getting 7 9's (get me?). Still not sure, but you gotta get seven 9's. Got the fragment in 30 minutes.

    I spent 2 hours today manually trying to get the lucky coin fragment. My luck must be very low though because the best I ever got was a chocobo.


    One thing I"m confused on is whether you have to get a jackpot or 7777 coins from winnings (multiple sittings included).

    I actually got 20k coins in less than 20 mins. I autoplay until the first tab started blinking then I started to do manual plays until I hit the jackpot. I ended up at super victory mode and hit the jackpot 6 times before I got 3 moogles in a row and got reset.

    Omg, I SUCK at this part so much. I spent so many legit hours manually pulling slots on the favourable moods, but got so little in return. Finally I just earned all the gil, bought the coins, waited for the best mood, and put it on auto and spent the afternoon on my PC >_>


    IF THIS COMES BACK IN FFXIII-3, I WILL SCREAM

    I hope these luck based fragments/collectibles/trophies doesn't anymore come back in XIII-3. Sucks too much, you say?

    For sure. I still haven't got the slot machine fragment. It's the only one left but I can't bring myself to spend several hours pressing auto play. I guess I could just rig the controller to play by itself but am not motivated enough to do so. lol

    Thanks for the information, I'll try to test your strategy for bonus money from the casino. If you are interested, here is a small list of casinos that provide bonuses to new players. https://getcasinobonus.net/bonuses/free/
