    It's a bit infuriating this time.
    About every second to third spin on the roulette two Chows show up, the third one comes into view and... Nothing...
    Have some 20 lapis, a cactaur or a burst pot. No, not even a king burst pot. ::salt::
    I'm beginning to belive Chow might be a disguised Ultros... ::ink::

    Shut up, ultros > chow

    Chow is just a stupid, dumb and irrelevant doggo
    How about ultros?
    He is an amazingly entertaining octopus whose scene is very enjoyable...
    And also unlike stupid chow, uncle ulty has his own personality and he made the player-sans happy with his jokes in any final fantasy scene...

    I dont ever watch the spins. Just skip em. 20 spins for me and the most I got was 100 lapis. Everything else was NRG pots, cactuars, and a few EX tickets.

    The roullete is just a visual gimmick, as the reward is decided when you press "spin", so they totally porpousefully set it to show you "almost" getting the good items.

    Results are predetermined I think when you spin..doesn't matter whichever character appears in between.

    I got the 300 lapis twice, that's something I guess. Rest has been garbage though. Got a total of 6 5+1 tickets with nothing but gold and blues, same for the 3 free 10+1.
    I suppose I'm having a bad streak. ::rudecat4::

    That's my assumption. I've yet to find any sort of pattern that indicates there's any skill involved. Seems to just be a visual on top of a predetermined outcome.

    But the wheel likes to give you a boost and force a match. You really wanted those 3 NRG restores. I have seen the dog many times, frequently see 2. Never have I seen 3 at a time. About half of my spins are either NRG restores or cactuars. The RNG on this one is total shit.

    It is not just an assumption, it even have a "skip" button that proves that the roulette is just visual gimmick with no bearing on the result.

    Also provable by hitting spin and then closing the program. When you come back you will have your reward without hitting the buttons.

    It is the same with the crystals during summons. All the times that it starts blue then gold then rainbow. Those are all rainbows with 2 extra animations adding for flare. Gumi has a required 17 pieces of flare.

    I got one in the first 3-4 spins the last time they ran slots, and none the whole rest of the way (hit the max reward) and this time 70 spins no 5*

    As others have said it doesn't matter, but for me it only trolled a few times with him. Now XWQL came up a bunch of times and failed. Sometimes by moving past only by one. Felt like a big FU.

    Though less than the one for a gacha game putting in a fake slot machine in. That is like poking a person in the eye repeatedly while saying "I know I'm a dick and you can just go fuck yourself" each time.
