One of the many exciting additions to Cyberpunk 2077’s gameplay in the Phantom Liberty expansion is betting against the odds in the casino. More specifically, it’s playing roulette. The mission “You Know My Name” has V disguised as a guest in the Black Sapphire Hotel and Casino on a reconnaissance job. If you want to take a chance on the game, you may be wondering: Are casino rounds random in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty?

Are Casino Rounds Random in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty? Answered

While playing roulette and talking to Aurore and Aymeric, you might be wondering if your choices on red on black matter. The answer is that roulette round outcomes are completely random. The game follows the European-style roulette rules, with 36 betting spots and a single zero.

This means that the game is never a 50-50 chance of winning due to the possibility of the ball landing on a zero. That said, this European-style roulette table in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty has a much lower house edge than if it was an American Roulette style table. Essentially, you have higher chances of winning here, as the North American version has two green segments – 00 and 0.

Dialogue Outcomes and Winnings

Interestingly, the outcomes of each roulette round have no effect on your dialogue with the NPCs, even though they’re random. In the beginning, V gets an extra €$100,000 to bet on roulette, of which you must wager at least €$80,000.

Depending on your luck, you might even win a hefty sum. Usually, I recommend sticking to one color — so choose either red or black. I would mention the Martingale strategy for roulette, but that might be a story for another time.

That answers the question of whether or not casino rounds are random in Cyberpunk 2077. We hope this cleared up any confusion you had about the “You Know My Name” mission. Either way, good luck and gamble responsibly. If you found this article useful, check out our guides hub for the game.
