Does anyone know if there is an easier way to get the "Jackpot" achievement in Bioshock. Is there some trick to it, or is it pure chance? I have done everything, spent so much money, and tried so many different machines. Yet, I just cant get the achievement and it seems many other people have no problem with getting it. Can someone help?

Pure chance, I did it earlier today. I just saved before I was going to start gambline, then I just kept pressing A for about 5 minutes and was doin something on the computer at the same time, and with time, I got a jackpot. Good luck.

Just save before you start. Then spend 200 dollars on one machine, if you don't get it reload. Remember to stay on the same machine. I left that for last and after I did everything in Fort Frolic I just placed myself in front of a machine, saved, and spent like 180-200 dollars to get it, which doesn't really matter because you get 500 when you get the achievement.

I kid you not, I got it on the first machine I went to, that being the firstVLT machine I even walked by. Took me about 60 bucks to get, but it was easy. I got it twice after that on different machines too just for the cash. I don't know if that helps. Do like the other guys said, save and retry if necessary.

Just save the game, play the same machine till you win, or reload if you go broke.
