    ...Yeah.

    But if you don't have experience and dont play random Fable Pub Games like me, you will need help. I developed this method through trial and testing and guarantee it will work for you, just apply it.

    ChucklestyleStill works, but holy crap make a save before you try. My first 2 attempts I rolled 3 on round 3 and 18 sometime during the next and took a bath. Dashboarded and reloaded immediately.

    The Bloodstone game is by far the easiest way to win this achievement. When you begin the game, go into the bank and take out about 3000 chips. Place you arch bet on 3, then each round place bets on 5, 4, 3, Trips, and all four specific triple rolls. The chances of a roll that low and triple are very low, and you'll pull in 80 chips a roll. This will give you 500 on your 7th roll. You can keep track of your progress on the stats page. Before you exit the game when you have 500, go into the bank and pay off your debt. Also, if by some rare chance you are hit with a triple roll, you'll find yourself somewhere around 2000 in the red. Being the achievement is for 1 session, it's best to exit the game and then start over fresh.

    I have found Fortunes Towers to be the best game to earn this achievement. The game is in Westcliff. It is easy to earn money if you simply watch what the payout is. If it is lower than what you bet then don't take the deal. Unless the Gate Card has already been used. Then just take the deal as it is more likely you will lose the next deal. As soon as the total for the cards makes a payout that is more than your initial bet then you should take the deal. You must also have played the other game types, as the achievement description says.

    There are 4 game types;
    -Keystone (Cow and Corset in Bowerstone Market)
    -Bloodstone (Bloodstone)
    -Fortunes Towers (Westcliff Tavern and Knothole Island)
    -Spinnerbox (Sandgoose Tavern in Oakfield, Lucky Heather Tavern in Rookridge, and traveling games master in Brightwood)
