When in the Casino, it’s a game of chance. This is one of the parts of the game where you have to constantly reset. However, should you be lucky, there will be times that the chances will be in your favour and you’ll get a lot of coins. At this point, we’re trying not to burn our wallets and work with what we have.
The casino in this guide is Baccarat’s Casino.
TIP: ALWAYS SAVE BEFORE MAKING A BET. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU’RE GONNA GET SHOT IN THE FOOT FOR GAMBLING.

First stage: The Starting 600 coins
Before making your first bet, make sure you save first.The first bets you’re going to make are a Row Bet and Nonuple bet (betting on nine different numbers). No matter what selection you make, everything is at the same chance. When you start off, bet 300 on both the Row Bet and the Nonuple Bet. Your reward increases when both numbers are hit. If the number is contained in both bets then, then you’ll win 1,800 tokens. If it is just one of the bets then, you’ll now have 900 tokens. Which bet you make now depends on how much you won. Refer to the image below for a better view. Example for the Row Bet is having multiples of 3-27 and the Nonuple Bet of 1-9.
If you don’t win, that’s what the reset button is for. Restart over and over ’til you win.
2nd stage 900 – 1800 coins
For this particular part, there are two conditions:
IF YOU HAVE 900 COINS: You can split the coins of 50-50 on each of your bets. When you do so and win, you can at least get enough coins to make the 1,800 bet.
IF YOU HAVE 1800 COINS: You keep the two bets from the first bet, but you add one of the Evens/Odds, or Reds/Blues. With that, you can max out 500 tokens on 3 bets with 300 coins change. Repeat until you have at least 4,500 tokens.
*note: you can already start maxing it out if you’re feeling ballsy and lucky about it.
IF YOU HAVE 4,500 TOKENS: This uses a variety of bets. You can either make 3 Nonuple Bets or 9 Single Bets. For higher output, do 9 single bets. The payout ratio is much higher. But if you want to play safe, put in 3 Nonuple Bets. It has a lower pay out however.
IF YOU HAVE 5,000 TOKENS: You can now combine the 9 Single Bets or the Nonuple Bet for increased pay out. However, the Single Nine Bets can cripple you due to it being the hardest to win.
IF YOU HAVE 6,000 TOKENS: Combination of 9 Single Bets, a Nonuple Bet. However, add Two Column Bets within the Nonuple Bet to create a double bet to increase the pay out.
IF YOU HAVE 7,500 TOKENS: Use the bets made so far. After that, add the 3 “Column Bets” of the Nonuple set.
IF YOU HAVE 9,500 TOKENS: Add the 4 “Quadruple Bets” contained within the Nonuple set. Place this along with all the other bets made so far.
15,500 Tokens- This uses all the bets made so far, and adds the 6 horizontal “Double Number Bets” & 6 vertical “Double Number Bets” of the Nonuple set. The payout for this bet can be 50,000 tokens!
*Optional* 16,000/16,500 Tokens- *Optional*
This uses all the bets made so far, and adds Even/Odd and/or Red/Blue bets. This is optional because it doesn’t really help earn much, if any, more because of the 50/50 chance of them helping.
The moment you hit 21,500, the pay out won’t be as big. Even with you winning or losing, there’s an average that you’ll lose either 4000-6000 coins which isn’t going to be beneficial on your part.
