Final Fantasy 13-2 Serendipitous Guide – Slot Machines and Chocobo Racing

By   /   4 years ago

Serendipity is a casino in Final Fantasy 13-2 where you can play mini-games like Chocobo Racing and Slot Machines. If you want to unlock Serendipitous achievement/trophy in FF13-2, you need to earn a total of 10,000 coins from Chocobo Racing or Slot Machines in the Casino (Exchanging Gil for Casino Coins doesn’t count towards this achievement/trophy).

If you want to earn them by playing Chocobo Racing, go for Gold Chocobo that can be found in a treasure chest in A Dying World AF700. Level it up to 45 (Max) and it would be a force to reckon with on the race track. Or you can earn 10,000 coins from Slot Machines but that is highly random and subjected to your LUCK.

It is recommended that you go for Slot Machines because either way you will need Lucky Coin fragment from 777 Jackpots on Slot Machines; it’s a requirement for 160 Fragments. Slot Machines are pretty much effortless to play.

Use a rubber band to hold down and leave it overnight. In the morning, if you have won 10,000 coins and Lucky Coin fragment, well and good. If not, load a previous save and start over. Finally, rewards from Slot Machines are higher than Chocobo Racing so it is well-worth the risk.

Remember, you need to win 10,000 Coins not earn. Your final coins count should be 10,000 coins more than your starting number e.g. You start with 5,000 coins and end by 15,000 coins.

How To Play On Slot Machines
Talk to NPC next to Slot Machine and she will tell you that slot machine actually has its mood. Good mood means higher chance to get the jackpot. When NPC tells you she is not in good mood, exit the building and re-enter. When NPC says something nice about the weather (mood), give it a go!

Now, use a rubber band to hold LB button to keep the machine running. This way you will eventually get the jackpot (777), which will prompt the machine to enter a ‘Break’ mode and then in ‘Overbreak’ mode. Overbreak mode is your window of opportunity because you have 10 times more chance of getting a jackpot.

Wait for Jackpot rounds in Overbreak mode, each win will give you 5,000 coins. Keep wining til you have recovered what you lost and WON 10,000 coins on top of that. Keep trying until you do that.

Once you have WON 10,000 coins, exit the slot machine and achievement will pop-up. Remember, you may have to win 10,000 coins in one go or achievement will not pop-up.

Don’t forget to share your own tips with us on how to play these mini-games in Final Fantasy 13-2.

    O.o holy fucking hell i got the 777 in about 20 minutes when the npc said it’s like a hot summer’s day….. just holy hell i was trying manually and kept almost getting it but i’m glad now lol i only had about 5600 coins no me at the time and i earned more just off the lucky 7’s then what i’d lost pushed me up to 5900 with the mini wins in between

  • undeadarmy

    Got the coin and achievement in less than 30mins. On a hot summers day with the rubberband trick

    • Jen Wulf

      does that work on xbox360?

  • JWatts

    Do your winnings add up if you stop playing or does it restart when your turns restart?

  • Trollslayer

    Well, im currently “playing” it as we speak. That boing and riddeding-sounds is starting to sound like an old techno-tune… I have to agree that there is ways to make this more enjoyable.. Fully automated rob-machine… Fuckin brilliant..


  • Dean

    Whoever approved this during the development of this game was smokin crack. Did they even play this?! Just burned through 2000 coins, no victory modes. Not even a x3 in there. Its blatant robbery of your precious time and I don’t condone this shit. And about the rubber band trick, what good is a game if you ain’t playing it. It should be fun yet its Frusterating as shit!!!!

  • orphan

    by the way its only hard so you force your self to keep playing the game square enix want yall to play their game and imagine if the fragment was to win 10 coin how boared will you feel because it was so easy to get 10 coins so you should know why its so hard to get 10 000 coins

  • orphan

    Man that’s crazy but you gona lose for long in auto play its like a half hour or more of losing the you’ll win then lose the win after that just keep going until you recover what you lost

  • B5000

    I must be doing this wrong cause I’ve spent two days and 30000 coins and still don’t have the fragment I need. I do the rubber band trick when it says it a hot summer day and all I do is lose. I’ve never even entered super victory mode once!!!!

  • shane

    this slot machine isnt even fun….. when you hold L , everything just gets repeated over and over and over….. they sure could have made it …. fun.

  • orphan

    Easy stuff dudes use a rubber band for slot machine put it on your controller to hold down the LB/L1 button you should wait for the lady next to the machine says ITS LIKE A HOT SUMMERS DAY and you should have about 20500 coins let the rubber band hold LB/L1 and wait for a lot of losing if you are bored of not doing anything the leave the game running with the rubber band on and watch TV play ball or even sleep but do nort exceed 5 hours of auto play and you will be amazed for doing nothing hope this works for you

  • mix

    lol,you are NOT required to do all the fragment missions,most of them are say that it wasn’t easy,and took you many hours to get.thats exactly the point.if you dont like it,you don’t have to do it

  • Twisted

    haha…this was the worst, took me countless of hours to get this achivement. i mean getting 100% bestiary and killing all the extra bosses were easier than this shit. this is tiresome when they put mini-gamers like this in the game.

  • The Minister

    Ugh this was the WORST MINIGAME EVER. Why they make this a requirement I have no idea, I would have been fine with just doing chocobo races. Those were fun, this felt like trying to climb a pyramid with roller skates on.
