Fallout: New Vegas – Big Winner Quest

The Fallout Game Series

 

Fallout Universe

The Fallout series started as a post-apocalyptic, role-playing video game in the year 1997. In 2004, the game was developed and marketed as action role-playing games by Interplay Entertainment. The gameplay and the plotline of the Fallout series follow a dystopian setting.

The timeline of the game plot is 21st, 22nd, and 23rd centuries and portrays an imaginary, post-apocalyptic, futuristic world. Visuals of the game are created around the post-war culture of the 1950s  United States of America.

The Fallout series was deeply influenced by the video game called Wasteland, also created by Interplay Entertainment. Fallout received a hugely positive response from the video gaming community due to its complex gameplay.

With the release of  Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel in the year 2004, the video game was declared as an action game with role-playing features. It was the 4th video game instalment of the Fallout Universe.

Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel was the first game of the Fallout Series that was made compatible with gaming consoles.

Fallout 3

Fallout 3 was the most innovative instalment of the Fallout series. Fallout 3 earned its title as the 3rd major segment of the Fallout Universe. This exciting installment of the series was the first one to be developed and published by Bethesda Softworks. 

The game was available worldwide on October 28, 2008. The previous games in the Fallout series had 2D isometric graphics and turn-based combat. What made Fallout 3 vastly different from its predecessors was its drastic shift to 3D graphics, real-time combat, and a free to roam game-world. 

Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout: New Vegas, released on October 19, 2010, acts as a spin-off to Fallout 3. This addition to the Fallout franchise was created by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Bethesda Softworks. The events of this video game take place in the year 2281.

The game’s timeline is set 4 years after the events of Fallout 3. Although Fallout: New Vegas cannot completely be considered as a sequel to Fallout 3, it retained a lot of similarities to its predecessor. Fallout: New Vegas was very well received by the gaming community and the critics – praised for its gameplay, quests, and excellent storyline. 

Fallout: New Vegas – Big Winner Quest

Fallout: New Vegas takes unmarked quests quite seriously. They offer some of the best unmarked quests that the gamer can clear for an added experience, and rewards. This game became a fan favorite amongst gamblers taking a break from casinos inside this list or stopping gambling for real funds. 

Fallout New Vegas: Big Winner Quest is an unmarked quest within the Fallout: New Vegas series that is to be completed for certain rewards. Fallout New Vegas: Big Winner Quest is a union between classic, action video games, and thrilling casinos. As it is an unmarked quest, it will not appear on the player’s Pip-boy.

The Big Winner quest within the game is one of the most extensive and well-developed unmarked quests inside the Fallout universe. Although Fallout New Vegas: Big Winner Quest is not a compulsory part of the video game, clearing this quest gives the gamer a sense of accomplishment.

The plethora of rewards collected upon the completion of this unmarked quest is also completely worth it. So, what exactly do you need to do in the quest? The answer is simple. The Big Winner Quest has a series of secret casino simulated games and has only one main goal.

The player needs to get banned from every single casino inside the quest. To get banned in casinos in the Big Winner Quest, the player character has to win a certain amount of chips while gambling in the casinos. Every casino offers a different house limit before the video game player gets banned. 

Even though the goal appears simple, there is a twist in the rules. The protagonist character of the video game, Courier, has to win 3 rewards before getting banned by the casino. If the protagonist is not able to win the said 3 rewards before getting banned, then they will not obtain the compensation rewards.
