*UPDATE*
It appears there has been an update that stops the glitch at the bottom of this page from working, but if you need it, it should still work if you clear your cache and play offline. I don't know if this update pertains to the new DLC or if its for everybody, but the glitch doesn't work anymore :(


When I went for this achievement, the other guides didn't work very well for me, so I figured some extra "Luck" stats couldn't hurt. I used a glitch to get my regular "Luck" up to 9 or so, but for other methods of getting your luck high, you can:
a) Buy implants from the New Vegas Strip Medical Clinic
b) Choose a high luck skill from the beginning of the game
c) Wear "Naughty Nightware" which can be purchased from Mick and Ralphs in Freeside
d) (refer to bottom of page for video + explanation of glitch)

Then, I headed on over to the casinos and bought some chips and went to the blackjack tables. It is VERY easy to win here.
- When your cards are around 8-14, "double down", to win more.
- When your cards are around 15-21, "stay".

Continue this betting MAX every time, and you will probably get banned within 10-15 minutes.

I got banned from each casino after profiting the following ammounts:

Gommorah - 9000
The Tops - 10000
Ultra-Luxe - 14500

Hope it helps :)

**REGARDING GLITCH*
***UPDATE***
This glitch has been patched, and will only work if you clear your cache and do it offline.

The glitch in the video is simply a method of getting many levels, very fast. How it affects your Luck stat, is for each level you can put your perk on "Intense Training", and add another +1 to your Luck stat. Getting a few quick levels with the glitch can 1) help you progress through the game quicker, or 2) get you some Luck stats to quickly do this achievement.

In the video, the guy doesn't know where the password is, and it is located in the "Atrium" of Vault 11, which is sort of like a meeting room-style room. The actual item is located on the podium.

*After you've gotten the levels off the glitch, you can easily revert to an older save if you'd like to keep your Fallout experience "legit", or simply continue on with your easy levels.
