Making Dice-A-Roo Less Dicey
Have you played Dice-A-Roo
yet today? Maybe you should! There's a lot of pluses to this game that the casual
Neopian can overlook.
When I was newer to Neopia, at first I hardly played Dice-A-Roo at all. The
first couple games I played I lost almost instantly and it was discouraging,
especially to someone new and without a lot of points in the bank! Eventually,
though, I learned that Dice-A-Roo can do a lot of good things for you, once
you learn the ins and outs.
First of all, don't be easily discouraged, like I was at first. Dice-A-Roo
is like a lot of gambling games, in that you need to know what you're doing
and be persistent for it to pay off. I've heard some people say that you shouldn't
play it for money, only for the higher prizes, such as the jackpot and faeries.
This is only partially true. As long as you can afford to play it for a while,
the items it gives out on lower levels can more than pay for you to keep playing,
as well as be another source of income when you sell them off.
The main reason I play Dice-A-Roo is for the perks at the top levels, but
I have never lost money in the long run. As long as you are persistent, you
will be receiving cheeseburgers, apple juice and sometimes even green apples,
which when I wrote this article were selling for 2,000 Neopoints each! Sell
these in your store and feed the lower priced items to your pets and Dice-A-Roo
will not only bring in an income, it will feed your pet, give you lottery tickets,
and on the higher levels also raise your pets level and give you faeries with
which to bless your pet or sell for more Neopoints! All this for only 5 points
One hint I'd like to pass on you, I learned through real experience. Although
the higher levels of the dice have some really great surprises in store, they
also hide the Pant Devil! I've learned that the best way to keep this evil nuisance
at bay is to keep about 20 items in my inventory that are cheap and I wouldn't
miss. I usually lean toward grooming items, such as towels and toothbrushes,
so that I can keep my pet in shape while increasing the likelihood of the Pant
Devil taking something unimportant. It's important to remember, though, that
if you win anything really excellent in Dice-A-Roo, it is always a good idea
to open another window and put it in your safety deposit box immediately! I
once won a Light Faerie only to have the Pant Devil steal it on the very next
roll of the dice!
Dice-A-Roo is currently a game you can only play so many times a day before
your pet gets bored, but the number of times you can play it is VERY high, and
it's likely that you may get tired before your pet does! I frequently keep one
window open to play Dice-A-Roo to kill time while waiting for jobs in Faerieland
to refresh as well. It is always there for you to try one more time to win another
faerie! And don't forget that Dice-A-Roo has a 10 times multiplier so that you
can get ten times the jackpot if you win! That's a great way to get a rating
of Grand Master on it and make a lot of money at the same time!
My last bit of advice is never settle for the Neopoints its offering if you
quit early. With faeries, food, level raising and lottery tickets, who can quit
for 35 points or even 100 when the next roll of the dice could give you so much
more! Now go try it and see for yourself, and remember, persistence is the key!
It's only a matter of time before Dice-A-Roo gives you lots of great items.
