How to grind chips for the Casino?

Here is a topic where people gave me a lot of good advice TC :)

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/717862-tales-of-symphonia-chronicles/68945869

I didn't use Regal, I used Colette with high Luck (over 200) Some people say the Luck stat helps, others say it doesn't and it's all just actual/natural real life luck, but it worked for me and it didn't take me long to get the one million chip trophy at all really, I mean it could have just been all in my head that the Luck stat was actually doing anything, and just real life luck or something, but either way believing it was doing something kept me positive about the whole thing and prevented the casino from being a serious ordeal so xD

I used the bet 500 at a time, reload if you don't win, keep playing and don't give up until Paradise mode, then I kept playing going through the cycles till Paradise mode again, etc, advice from people too :)

Luck does help. I was playing as Lloyd and had 7, and kept losing, I switched to Sheena who had like 75 luck and then suddenly I won more often. In Blackjack especially.

I honestly don't know if you're trying to be contrary or not ;P

That's interesting Bronze_Stuff, thanks for posting about that, yeah like I said other people have said it helps as well for winning consistently, I've never tried Blackjack before but I might give it a go with Colette's Luck build sometime now =) Just for the sake of doing it really, I had over two million chips when I finally called it quits at slots. As mentioned before other people have said it's just based on real life luck, based on winning big the odd time with low Luck, but others have been able to keep on winning consistently up and beyond the one million hit trophy without it taking long so =) Well it's all about what works best for people really in the end, new players can try different methods and roll with whatever works better for them, anyone can :)

For slots, on the reload that I won as I have said Sheena had 20 luck. I got a triple 7 after 3rd bet, got Paradise Mode and got Bars like 5 times in a row. Then quit cuz I just wanted the costume.

Unless someone does extensive research on it, luck might not even play a factor. I won 0 chips with 144 Luck Regal.

I only took High School Psychology, but it was a College Credit class. Anyways this honestly is just psychological imo. You suck with low luck so when you win with higher luck it implants as that being the factor. I bet the people that said Regal helps lost with one character so much they assumed since Regal owns the place it's rigged for him to win. Then they won with him and that implanted.

Someone needs to do actual research on whether character luck matters or not. Cuz I kind of doubt it does.

How long did you try with Regal though? I'm talking about a consolidated amount of time here, like hour, hour 'n a half, more here, non stop playing without taking a break, without quitting the slots after the initial win. As mentioned I didn't use Regal either, but Colette with high Luck since she has the best Luck build with equipment as far as I know, and it's been consistent for me, after getting a million chips, quitting for the night, then going back and getting another million another time.

The initial thing you are talking about with the Sheena is the RNG, like the advice people give is to keep reloading until you win, then if you keep playing you'll soon win big since Paradise mode is supposed to happen soon after on that RNG, but after that's finished it depends on what happens after that while going for the million chip trophy or if you just want to keep collecting chips for some reason after, like if you'd kept playing with Sheena over an hour or so if she'd have kept getting lots of little wins until the next Paradise mode or not or if it would have taken a long time to win again as some people's experience has been.

I was also told Luck was a factor in determining floor effects, etc in the EX dungeon, and a high Luck build works consistently there for me as well, I very rarely get negative floor effects, and usually get great floor bonuses, soulfire choice bonuses, floor choice, torch rewards, etc :)

Yeah you could be right about the casino as well though. I also touched on that earlier in my original post here, it could be psychological, and believing hard enough that Luck was doing something, but hey if that did it, it did it, and if it keeps people positive and prevents people from finding the casino an ordeal/from giving up, it can't really be a bad thing, since it can be disheartening for people doing for the million chip trophy and playing for hours without anything really seeming to do anything.. Since I've read horror stories of it getting enough chips for things taking over a dozen hours for some people, and I'm glad that didn't happen ;o

It took me about 5 reloads. I kept using Regal with over a 100 Luck with 2 Rabbit's Feet. 4/5 times I got jack.

Decided to use Sheena cuz she's my favorite ToS1 character. Got my costume on my 5th reload.

Why the hell would I sit there for hours when I got the costume in 25 minutes.

You guys can believe what you want, but a character's luck most likely has nothing to do with it.

As for Niflheim my characters all had under 70 Luck. Got 1 red floor, and like 2 negative floors.

You're more like Vegh than you realize ;P

Like I mentioned about being contrary, if is the case, if so, you often bash, attack, and flame Vegh for him just posting the same thing over and over, him relentlessly just posting about the way he does things and him just keeping on doing things his way, but when people post stuff, you're like yeah well this is the way I did it, screw the alternatives, then you just lash out when people are trying to have a reasonable discussion.

You're also missing the point, everyone gets enough for the costume within the first twenty five minutes, that's the way the RNG works for with getting to quickly to Paradise Mode and your first big win, after the initial win, after save/reload. The discussion was about what happened after that. Instead of lashing why not go ahead and try for a million chips or more, for the million hit trophy, then report your findings, both with positive and negative Luck, I'd be willing to collaborate on something like that :)

Um no. I don't troll players with useless crap. Don't dare compare me to that thing. It's nice when you put worda in people's mouths though. Don't sit on a high horse and act all mighty.

I don't bot either. And I was merely statting I personally believe character luck has nothing to do with it. There is no concrete proof.

And if you actually read what I said, I received Bars with Sheena 5 times in a row in Paradise. I didn't bet after as I don't care about Trophies.

I can test it when I get the Casino re opened. I saved over my file like a dumb ass.
