You know, it’s been many years since the last time I played a “Fallout” title. Why? Because I think things really started to go downhill for the “Fallout” series after “Fallout: New Vegas”.

I mean, let’s be honest, “Fallout 76” is absolutely terrible…So from my point of view, one is better off just playing the old “Fallout” titles instead.

fallout 2

Black Isle Studios and Interplay released the Post Nuclear sequel to “Fallout 1” back in 1998, and in my opinion, “Fallout 2” is still the best game in the “Fallout” series so far.

And speaking of which, I just installed “Fallout 2” on my computer for the first time in over eight years (I know, I know, shame on me!). Well, long story short. I sure didn’t regret doing that, because it sure didn’t take me long to remember why I spent years playing “Fallout 2” in my youth.

fallout 2 luck

Luck plays a rather big role in “Fallout 2” since it affects everything from getting more critical hits to winning money and finding rare random encounters on the world map.

However, this time I played “Fallout 2” a little “differently” from the last time that I played the game. You see, while I was creating my “Fallout 2” character I cranked up my luck stats as much as I could. “And why did you do that?”

fallout 2 casinos

There are two big casinos to be found in “Fallout”, and they are called the Shark Club and Desperado (both of them can be found in the city of New Reno).

So you might wonder, because I had a slight memory of luck playing a huge roll in things such as winning in casinos, gambling games and finding rare random encounters on the world map (some random encounters can’t even be found if you don’t have enough luck for it).

fallout 2 the desperado

You can improve your chances of winning at casinos and whatnot by getting the “gambler” perk. As the gambler perk adds +40 skill points to gambling.

And speaking of luck and gambling. As you might already know, there are quite a few places in “Fallout 2” where you can gamble and win money and whatnot. Well, you can get a rather good start in the game if you head off to New Reno and use your luck to earn some fast and easy cash.

fallout 2 inventory

You can buy a lot of gear, weapons and items with the money that you’ve won from gambling.

And “if” everything went well, then you could use the money that you won to buy some new weapons, gear and whatnot (I did not have such a luck the first times that I played “Fallout 2” as a teen).

Simply put, it’s something that’s going to help you out a whole lot while while exploring a very deadly and hostile post-apocalyptic North America.

And while on the subject of gambling and casinos, here are some of the 3 best online casinos on the market right now. So if you feel just as lucky in “Fallout 2” as you do in real-life, then you might want to give the real deal a try.
