i got all 50 horseshoes before i started gambling, but now my gambling skill won't go up. i've tried playing different games over and over and staying in different games for various amounts of time, but nothing is working.
has this happened to anyone else?
anyone got any advice?

thanks

spend more time at the slots.

ok i tried setting up a weight on the triangle button and stayed at a slot machine for twenty minutes. every try on the slots takes 7 seconds, so that comes to about 170 rounds on the slot machine and my gambling skill didn't go up at all.
i think i've activated some kind of glitch...
anyways, i think i'm going to reload an earlier save...

The horseshoes raise your luck, not your gambling skill. Play blackjack to raise it.

play roulette and bet the maximum amount

When you have all 50 horseshoes do you always win, or do you just lose very very rarely?

ok i think i got it figured out; gambling skill has to do with the amount of money you play in the casino instead of the number of times you play a game-i got to the first level on the $50 slots, then to the next on $10k hands of blackjack, then $100k games. thanks for the help.

oh, and you still lose pretty often with all 50 horseshoes, but you don't feel so helpless about it...that next big win is just around the corner....

Yeah you have to bet a lot. The only other comparison that I can think of is lifting weights. If you want to get stronger (higher skill), you bet more and bet more often. If you just bet only the minimum (lifting 2 pound weights) and do it over and over, its not going to help you.

Hope that makes any sense...

Ahah! I think I get it now. I was having the same problems with gambling. biggrin.gif
