Before we begin, the loot on the Get Lucky wheel can be split into two primary categories:
- No limit loot
- One time loot
Loot with a limit of one will automatically be swapped out when you receive the loot. This means, even though you have locked the loot, when you spin and land on it, it will be swapped out for something else.
Loot with a limit of one is usually considered the more rare and difficult to get loot.
On the other hand, you can get loot with no limit an infinite number of times. This means that once you have this loot locked on the wheel, you will permanently be receiving more loot from the Get Lucky building.
Additionally, loot with no limit is considered the more common and less difficult to get loot.
This is an important concept to understand, because it really narrows down our options as to what we should be locking.
In the above image, the following loot has no limit:
- 1 Casino Chip
- 150 Gems
- 1 TriHard Scroll
The rest of the loot all have a limit of one. This means that when you land on the upgraded hero during a spin, it will be swapped out for a different hero.
So, what should we be locking?
The best loot we can possibly lock is loot that does not disappear after landing on it during a spin. Therefore, our best loot will be some loot with no limit.
The best no limit loot is the 500.
You have a 81.1% chance to land on the common Gem drop when spinning the wheel, so it makes a lot of sense that this would be our #1 pick.
Since we want 500 to appear on the loot table, it’s important that we don’t ever lock anything in that slot. If the common Gem drop slot is locked, then the refresh will never change the loot on that slot, inhibiting our ability to receive the 500.
Therefore, you should never lock the following:
You have a 1/20 chance of receiving the 500 on the loot table after a refresh. While it might take a long time to get, it is extremely important that you wait for the 500 instead of locking one of the above options.
What are the next best options to lock?
There are several other options for your potential 2nd or 3rd lock (or to just keep in the wheel without refreshing).
They are the following:
- 2 Casino Chips
- 2 TriHard Scrolls
- Upgraded PogChamp hero
2 Casino Chips and 2 TriHard Scrolls are both no limit type loot.
It would likely be better to prioritize Casino Chips above TriHard Scrolls since you have a 5% chance of getting Casino Chips on a spin and only a 0.5% chance of getting TriHard Scrolls.
The PogChamp hero can be seen as the hero in the top right of the Get Lucky wheel. In fact, each hero on the wheel can be seen as a typical hero which comes from a different summon stone.
- Bottom left hero: TriHard stone
- Bottom right hero: Kappa stone
- Top right hero: PogChamp stone
So, it is entirely possible that you run into a very powerful and very high level PogChamp hero. If you do, it would be a better option to lock this instead of the 2 TriHard Scrolls or 2 Casino Chips.
How strong does the PogChamp hero need to be?
If you remember earlier in this guide, we discussed the upgraded loot with the orange banners with stars.
With regards to an upgraded PogChamp hero, you should look for an upgraded banner with at least 3 stars.
This will ensure you that the hero is sufficiently strong enough to justify locking it instead of 2 TriHard Scrolls or 2 Casino Chips.
If you’re lucky enough, it’s entirely possible that you might run into a 12-star hero after a refresh!
After you end up getting the hero from a spin, you can lock your next 2 TriHard Scrolls or 2 Casino Chips.
Therefore, your locking priorities can be seen in the following order:
- 500 (1/20 chance).
- Upgraded PogChamp hero (has at least 3 upgraded stars).
- 2 TriHard Scrolls or 2 Casino Chips.
Following this strategy will ensure you have the best possible loot table in the Get Lucky building at all times.
