I've moved on but while I was playing I was down to one stinking fragment: the casino slot machine one. Now, after much thought, I wonder if I was doing it right. Do you get it as soon as you complete the requirements or do you have to go to someone for it?
And what was your final fragment?
Hitmon133: "Today's passage is taken from the Book of Coug. Chapter 56, Verse 46. >.>"
To get the 7777 coins fragment, you have to simply win that much from the slot machine (not the net gain). So every time you win even a small amount like X3 for example it counts towards that trophy.
Sounds like you're doing it right. "It's like a hot summer's day!" Is the best mood. What I would do, is do the rubber band and sit there until I go into the first victory mode, then do it manually. Because you decrease your chances of winning by 30% with the automatic play. So in victory mode I would just keep going manually until I win something. If by the time victory mode is over, I have lost way too much money, I start over. I did this for a few hours a day for about a week before I got the trophy.
So yeah, good luck! I wish there was more strategy to this but unfortunately there isn't. Just patience.
Amass about 15000-20000(i think) coins then do the rubber banding trick. You will eventually get it. I got it in a few hours while getting a lot of the triple 7's. Once I got them 3 in a row with the bonuses and that's how I got the trophy.
I actually sat and watched the slots while playing. To see if I could manually beat it faster. The answer was no. It's fixed. Lands on the same order over and over till it feels like letting you win. So you will just have to rubber band it and walk away. You will eventually get the fragment. It's not as tough as its made out to be. Just a time killer. And DON'T stop playing until you get the fragment. Even if you don't know you got it, wait till you use up all your coins. Or else you will be forced to restart again.
Again, it's fixed, so you WILL get the fragment if you do this right. It's by no way, random. I tested this for several hours.
And DON'T stop playing until you get the fragment. Even if you don't know you got it, wait till you use up all your coins. Or else you will be forced to restart again.
I'm a bit confused by this statement - everything I've read (and I have the guide) sounds like you need to win 7,777 coins cumulatively over all your times playing the casino game, and you don't have to get it all in one session. I did a rubber band session for a little under 2 hours yesterday and ended up with about 2300 coins won (just doing some math estimates based on # of turns & current coin count). If I do another session of maybe 3 or 4 hours tomorrow, then after i win about 5200, I should get the cutscene and fragment, right? Am I missing anything?
EDIT: So I got lucky coin yesterday, and it seems to be cumulative. I got 6000 from jackpots (9s x 2 on regular, x1 on victory, x1 on super victory, all of them on autoplay), but I'm sure I got less than 1500 besides that as it only took an hour. As soon as I got the 5000 coin jackpot the cutscene triggered and I got the fragment.
