Persona 5 Niijima Palace
Entering the Casino
You need to enter the casino by heading to the roof via the fire escape and through the door.
You need to head past the ceiling’s decorations, towards the area where you fought the Shadow the first time. Find the Safe Room on the south side and head up the stairs to take the western door.
In the new area, head down the hall and towards the stairs. Head left after taking the stairs and then head west. Go past the generators to come to a door that requires a keycard. Head past this door to find a Safe Room.
From the Safe Room, head up the stairs to defeat a strong Shadow. Defeating the enemies should reward you with a keycard that you would be able to use on locked doors.
Once done, head inside the room behind it and go through another room. Now head inside the farthest locked room to crawl through a vent and face another powerful Shadow in there. After defeating the Shadow, you will receive a Member’s Card and the map of the area. From the Main Floor, take the elevator to head into the next area.
Member’s Floor Lobby
Speak to the cashier before using the Safe Room, he will tell you what you need to know to get to the higher level. Then you will get a 1000 playing chips along with the map of the area for the dealer. In order to get to the higher level, you need to win 50,000 coins. Following that head to the west side to enter the Dice Area.
After randomly picking a room, try a few games of dice. You will come to discover that the games are all rigged. Follow on to try a few other rooms and eventually Akechi will pull you aside to confirm that the dices are rigged.
Head north to find a small vent, crawl inside the vent near the northernmost dice room.
Once you emerge on the other side of the vent, you will find yourself in another staff passageway. Continue to follow the path and head up the stairs. Now head across the walkway and down the stairs at the very end. Continue towards the split and find a Safe Room on the west side. From the Safe Room, you need to head through the door at the end of the hallway to find a secret Dice Area.
The path to the staircase will also lead to a searchable item with Orlov- a treasure demon inside of it.
Secret Dice Area
After entering the area, you will encounter a shadow directly ahead of you. You will have to defeat that shadow which will allow you to hijack the system of that dice room so that the game plays in your favor.
This shadow is named the Wandering Reviver and has the ability to brainwash your players. So beware, also it reflects Curse back at you but is vulnerable to Bliss and Wind skills, and therefore Akechi is a good opponent for it.
Defeat the Shadow and head out of the room towards the south side to open the barred doors. Make sure to pick between ’11 and 18’ before heading back to Member’s Floor Lobby.
Member’s Floor Lobby
By now, you should have enough cash to play the slots. Therefore, quickly use the Safe Room and head through the door on the east side.
After the battle against two Shadows, head inside the Slot Room. These are Life-draining Spirit that absorbs Fire and reflects Curse. They will also try to engage the members of your team. Ice attacks will be useful against these.
After defeating the shadows, mark the red monitor to your left on the map and proceed to enter the room. There will be a lot of slot machines in the room but do not fondle with them.
Continue along the path and head up the stairs. Once again, continue the path and head down the path to go through a door to find a massive slot machine. This slot machine, unlike others, gives a massive coin bonus of 50,000. Just what you need to buy the Higher Limit Card.
Interact with the slot machine and head back to access the machine’s terminal – marked by ‘!’ on your map.
To hack into that massive slot machine, you will have to find and interact with two terminals of the machine. Futaba will be the one to tell you of these two terminals. One of them is red and the other is green.
To find the Green Terminal, head to the previous room and head south from the entrance. Head down the path and through a door to find some crates. Climb the crates over to the north side to find a chest and the Green Terminal.
To find the Red Terminal, head towards the entrance of the Slot Room from where you entered the Member’s Floor Lobby and you should be able to find the Red Terminal on the left-hand side wall.
Now return to the machine and win 50,000 coins. Once done, return to the dealer in the Lobby to buy the High Limit Card followed by using the elevator to move to the next area and speak with the bouncer. Return to the real world!
House of Darkness Maze
In the High Limit Lobby, you will first of all have to face a strong shadow named the Final Measurer or the Norn. He is persistent to all kinds of attacks except Electric, Psychic and Nuclear. It will be easy to defeat if you have strong Physical attacks and a high rate of critical hits.
Stick to the left-hand-side wall until you come across a vent. At this point, you need to head inside the secret area. After dropping down, stick to the left side and head past the blue lights until you come across a locked door.
Climb up from the illuminated area and crawl through the vent to drop down from the other side. Once again, stick to the left side to head inside a door and head down. Now head to the west side to come to the outer area.
After the cut-scene concludes, crawl through the vent on the left side and west towards the stairs. Head up the stairs and take the door on the south side to come to the Main Hallway. Take the western door and defeat the Shadow before returning to the High Limit Lobby.
High Limit Lobby
Head inside the Battle Arena after crossing the Lobby and defeat a couple of Shadows. Once you are done with Shadows, head to the scales to deposit your winnings and cross the bridge to get the treasure before returning to the real world.
Boss Fight Tips
For this part, you will have to go through a set of gambling games. The gamble is a tactical advantage for the winner, either an increase in HP or SP or the restoration of any other powers. You will surely lose for the first few tries as there is a cheating mechanism in place that you have to uncover.
At the start, keep the stakes low so that whatever advantage the opponent gains is kept minimal. However, keep an eye on the place where the ball originally lands before falling.
After a few round, you will be asked if you have figured out the mechanism. For that, you have to answer that there is a glass lid. Send one of your teammates to deal with it. After you have disabled the cheat, put high stakes on the original spot where the ball falls and you will gain a large amount of advantage,
During the second phase, try ‘Concentrate’ and Fire-based Abilities most of the time. This is not actually a weakness but these attacks seem to work better than the others. In addition to this, keep one teammate on the task of healing you and other members.
