"hot like a summer day", or "machine on fire"?


my beau is saying the latter, but my coworker says the former...and the one thing i found on here says the former aswell....but i seem to have better luck with the latter.


anyone care to offer me some input? ^^"

(and obviously, am going for the fragment :P)

also meant to ask:

does the slot tutorial earnings add toward the fragment earnings at all? cuz if so, can i not just play the tutorial and break its high income earnings? :P (i assume it doesn't but worth asking)

I went hot summer's day and got the coin in 10 minutes with no previous playing.

And I also doubt the tutorial thing would work. Many people find the lucky coin to be the most frustrating fragment.

Is there a specific timing used to succeed at the slots or do you just stop the reels whenever and hope? I know with some games that have slots in them you can time when you stop the reels to increase your chances but im not sure if it works here or not.

Contrarly to popular belief, playing manually does not increase your chances of winning. The slots acts just like real ones and your input will not affect the odds of getting the jackpot. This leaves you with three options.

1. Have a FFXIII save date on your HDD. (Among the bonus of getting a cool PS3 theme and some adornments, it apparently increase your luck in the casino. But I can't confirm this.)

2. Rubber-band + at least over 15000 coins. Leave the running overnight.

3. Be praying, Be praying, Be praying.

Lucky Coin was the worst, it took me a total of 25 hours of leaving the game running just to get this last fragment. Best of luck for those going for 100% completion. You'ill need it.

I just got it recently, I bought 10,000 coins, taped the L1 button and left it there. 1.5 hour later, I came back to see the progress. I was just starting in Super Victory mode (100 coins each spin), so i watched it. I went down to 5000 before hitting a jackpot, got back to 10,000 that way, then lost to 7500 again.
The lucky coin popped around that time.

So it's proven that it's not 7777 profit, just 7777 winnings.
Took around 2 hours total.

Good luck!

"What would you like to buy?"
What kind of merchant are you? I want to sell, not buy!

I've read that when the machine is "like a hot summer's day" is when you'll have the best luck. From my personal experience it seems to be true.

btw, mine was "on fire".

It's pure luck I guess. I just put duct tape on the L1 button and went to eat lunch, came back later and was 30000 coins richer and had the fragment.

The PBG lists the differences in the chances between manual and auto play. Do you have any numbers that contradict them? If not, I'm inclined to believe the PBG.
