Quest as per subject. The monster arena seems to nearly always turn into a gang up on the monster with the best odds... unless, of course, I bet against him. Then the outcome seems genuinely random.

As for the poker table, the cards feel like they fall funny. I'm going to have to do a probability study once I get a LOT of extra casino tokens (as in, I manage to fill the book or whatever you have to do to get the bonus), and I can afford to lose deliberately (see as many cards dealt as possible). But my current assessment: The dealer is stacking the deck for drama from time to time.

As with all real casinos, THE GAMES ARE RIGGED! Square Enix just used a probability to dictate the payout. Your bast bet is probably to buy as many tokens as possible, save, and bet big on any one thing. If you do not win, it is as simple as reloading.
Also after completing and looking at everything in the beastiary you get 30,000 tokens!

Yeah, I think you're right. I just spent over 100 tokens last night in the slot machines and won nothing.

And you should never double up in the monster arena...take a win if you get one
