Gambler Challenge #8

12 posts in this topic

Alright, I have to say, I haven't minded these challenges, in fact, Im having fun doing a lot of them but this one is complete bullshit. You have to win 3 Blackjack rounds while hitting 3 or more times. Ive played over 2 hours and have only gotten it once but the dealer matched my score so it didn't count! Is there anything in this game like an outfit or something that helps boost luck or helps you cheat? lol

Win and cloud save. Lose -> reload cloud save. No clue if this works though. I had this idea in mind when I get to the 3x poker wins

Reloading would take longer than waiting for the dealer to reshuffle the cards. Not by much though.

I find getting natural blackjacks easier than the challenges this game has.

I got 13 natural blackjacks before getting a single win with 3 or more hits.

Haha. I just walked here to post exactly the same post as yours, OP. 2h and I won... 0 rounds of BlackJack with 3 or more cards taken.

Funny thing is I met the requirements twice (19 and 20 points), but lost and had a draw. SUPER FUN, rockstar! :)

 

 

:( What a waste of time. 7 years of development, and still so many low blows.

Yeah... this challenge is just pointless and a waste of time. Got it done 2/3 times now. Once I got 18 after 3 hits and the dealer had 19 -.-

Just as I wrote this I had 14 after 2 hits and f... my luck, my 3rd hit was a king and it killed me again lol

I ended up getting this finished after around 3 hours total of nonstop Blackjack. I highly recommend opening up some stream or movie on the side while doing this lol

I’m on this now and I seriously want to kill every dealer in the game and his family. My biggest issue is other people keep showing up to the table, which seriously slows things down. I can’t ever get a game with less than two people!! I tried killing everyone but new people just show up when I go back.

 

This challenge is infuriating!! Anyone have any tips on getting rid of people from the table? Other than busting them out or murdering them.

Sit on the furthest right (left from dealer perspective). If your first 2 cards aint low enough or you bust just leave inmediatelly then re-join quickly.

Yeah I did this strategy last night and was able to get all three within the hour. Simple and easy if they're not low cards just leave and rejoin

That's also what I did and, like A_B_Y_S_S_1, I finished the challenge within an hour.

 

Things to know;

- When you quit a game, the camera focus on you, but the game on the table automatically resets.

- If you turn around fast after getting up, you can rejoin the game before the dealer distribute the cards to the other players.

- If you are fast, it takes around 10-15 seconds to get up, sit down and bet again... In other words, it takes 10-15 seconds to reset the cards in your hands, which is much faster (I would say at least 10 times faster) than wait for the dealer to finish dealing the cards, for the other players to finish playing, and for the dealer to take the cards and chips.

 

My strategy;

- Winning with three hits means winning with at least 5 cards.

- 21 points means each of the five cards value should be around 4 for a total of 20.

- It means the combined value of the first two cards should then not be that much higher than 8.

- So if the very first card was higher than 8 (9, 10, J, Q, K), I get up and quit the game.

- If I get 7 or 8, I wait to see if the second cards is not an Ace, 2 or 3. If the combined two first cards value was not higher than 10, I would wait to see if by chance I do not get another Ace, 2 or 3 as a third card to lower the balance.

 

I sat on the dealer's left side, being the first to receive cards, and before starting a game, I would save, and reload the game until I get a table with only one other player (if possible not on the desired seat). Having only one other player means you get that second card much faster and save some time.

 

With that method you end up doing 2 to 4 games a minute.

 

It is impossible to guess what cards are coming next, so it is up to you to know when to quit or not. You can have a 4, a 6, then an Ace and loose because it totals 21.

 

I would say if the combined value of the first two cards is not higher than 8, you are within the target score. If it is lower than 6, your chances are much higher (since you can get cards of a value of 5 or 6, or even higher and still win with three hits), but if the combine value of the two first cards is 10, it doesn't mean you will not have it ... but the chances are lower (your next card can still be a 2, bringing you within the target score with a total of 12 after 3 cards). That said, once I lost a game after 3 hits because the dealer got a 19 against my 18.

 

This game is clearly rigged to get us into "exciting blackjack scenarios" that gives more Blackjacks or more twist if you accept a card or not. It makes that Gambler #8 challenge something unbelievably stupid (with real chances, this challenge who be much faster), that comes just next to trying to find those almost extinct Parakeets somewhere in Bayou Nwa.

 

I really hope Rockstar would include a "bad luck gambler hat" or something you can put on or off to lower the card score you get while playing cards, just for the sake of having a bit of fun doing that challenge.

 

That said, for now it is based out of luck, and you can only win by trying again and again, which means speed will be your best strategy.
