Dragon Quest V [DS] Commentary #023, Fortuna: Slots (2/2), Big Win and Prizes

This is video #023 in my playthrough of Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. This video contains commentary. To view the non-commentary version, click here:

In the previous video, young Madason and Prince Harry built up just over 142,000 tokens from the slots at Fortuna Casino. Now, they resume the slot machine mayhem.

A line of five blue balls can yield 30,000 tokens if you max your bet (time 8:38).

A row of four watermelons is just as nice (time 11:30).

And another line of five blue balls (time 28:40).

Before too long, another line of four watermelons, along with three blue balls (time 30:40).

Getting a line of four bells is not bad, since it yields 15,000 at max bet (time 37:34). The three blue balls don’t hurt, either.

But hooray for four watermelons (time 40:03)!

And more happy melons again (time 47:52)!

And a third time (time 50:13)! Yay!

They head off to save their progress with 292,000+ tokens. Afterwards, they resume the slots.

They have just barely resumed when they make a HUGE win (time 52:55). A line of FIVE melons, worth 300,000 tokens, and a line of three 7s, worth 30,000 tokens. They now have over 600,000 tokens! Wow!

They now have the tokens that they will need, so they head to the prize counter for some exchanges (time 53:22). They get a Gringham Whip, which will be for Harry and future users. They pick up three Metal King Swords: one for Madason and two for other party members later. They also grab a couple pairs of Falcon Knife Earrings, which will be useful for Metal Slime hunting later. They bulk up on twenty Elfin Elixirs and ten Yggdrasil Leaves. That should be more than enough of both items. Elfin Elixirs are absurdly underpriced at 300 tokens apiece. And one Kamikazee Bracer for good measure.

Next, the party will take care of the last formal matter of business here in Fortuna, the wagon.

Thanks for watching!

#GameDesign question of the day:
Was the slot machine mechanic over used in Yooka-Laylee’s Capital Cashino? What could have been done to keep that challenge engaging?
