Default Rip off Rip off achievement

Hello,

has anyone actually managed to get the "Rip off Rip off" achievement (win three consecutive times the cups dealer)?

I've played more times than I care to admin, have reached two consecutive wins but never three. It seems completely random, and "following the cups" has nothing to do with it since once they slide in one corner they are shuffled without any visual cue ( or so it seems to me ? ).

Am I missing something here?

Always go for the one in the middle! You'll get there eventually - it shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.

*I believe you already know about the "/gold bet x" chat command.

It depends on your luck. Before the update I tried it a couple of times and miserably failed all the time. As soon as the update went live I got it on my first attempt! I couldn't believe it, it was just more than...oh my god.

It works with gold and mushrooms so it is up to you what to spend...but we all know what's more precious.

It took me a while but I did eventually get it. No particular logic that I could see, I just got lucky. I ran my gold down to about 200k and then bet the minimum each time.

Why would you waste so much gold when you can just /gold bet 1 and it bets 1 gold, the achievement still counts.

Update: finally got it.

/gold bet 1 didn't work for me, after typing it and going to the vendor no amount was selected But it's easy enough - buy skills till you're almost broke and do that, each run was about 10k for me.

I tried the "always bet in the middle" tactic, which basically boils down to "always bet on the same one" I guess... in any case, after 50-60 tries I got it

Congratulations! It's not always the middle cup...the ball was under the right one all the time when I tried.

Yeah I guess the strategy here is to bet on the same cup all the time and keep your fingers crossed
