Any tips for Platoon?

Platoon is far and away the best way to make chips in the Casino.

It's very easy but every once in a while your gonna F up.

Wizard + Bishop FTW

ALWAYS pick one of her platoons to win, then attack it with a single low number card, like 2-4 against a stack of 3+ cards.

NEVER attack a single card as a King since 20% of the time or less she may put a Bishop solo and Bishop always beats a platoon with a king.

I made 150,000 chips in platoon by just playing it forward. I quite when I jumped above 100,000 bought the Gold Ticket, then played again and won another 48,000 chips and said i'm done.

Blackjack in this game is odd since I have busted 19/20 times when hitting when I had less then 16. I win more in Vegas then in the Crypt Casino.

Slots are pointless since you can stop the rollers. If you are good at stopping them on a dime, you will get rich. If instead your human, go play Platoon.

The maze game is just pointless, takes forever, reward is pathetic.

Why Joker with a 2?


because 2 is the lowest value. You trade it with one of their 3 card 4 card pile and you are almost guaranteed to win everytime.

I have seen my 2 points get swapped with something worth 39 points or even more before.


You could also use any low level card to make sure you always win, but bishop is dangerous, at least for me, as I always trade it and the enemy has a king...


It's theoretically just as likely for your opponent to have a king in their hand as it is for them to have a bishop, so a bishop should be just as "safe" as a low card to pair with a wizard.

People always gotta turn luck into "skill".

It's the same thing in real life..... sigh.....


Once you figure out how it works, you can start to easily win bigger, provided you are not too greedy. Just one day ago, I was content with leaving with 4k chips. Today I cashed in 40k, 60k, and even a 240k once, which is a pretty awesome return for risking a grand total of 200 chip.

I never said you can't win chips.

The fact that it costs 200 to buy in makes that a sure thing.

You pay 200, for a chance to win over 100,000 if you are lucky. I'll take that.

Well from my experience of doing that, just could be my bad luck, which is pretty bad, at least with RNG stuff... Anyways it should be just as safe, but I like having a 2.

It's a good game to get coins off of but only if your lucky. You can use a bit of logic to help build an advantage but when it comes right down to it luck is still the name of the game. The stakes are really low for the payout it's just knowing when to stop that will end up making you a profit.

I've played Platoon for about two hours now, and EVERY ******* TIME I get to round 4, my deck has two bishops and 2-9 for the rest of them.

Not to say the game is rigged, but it's clearly incredibly rigged.

That is why you place those two bishops by themselves and make 3 decks that can fight back through sheer numbers.

Yeah, it'd be great if that actually worked. Dealer usually ends up with hands with minimum values of 20. Hell, once she threw a 40 valued hand at me.

I know how to play the game. The problem is once you get to the fourth round, the computer really starts laying the cheat sauce on thick.

If you were going to play a game where you knew you might make that large of a bet why would you not just go save first and reload if worst comes to worst?
