What’s New This Year?
KIngpin’s Rancor and Vectron Magnus mount that were previously from Kingpin Slot machines have been replaced with Vectron BWL Wraith and Gamorrean Guard items. They have the same drop chance as before the Kingpin Rancor and Vectron Magnus speeder. Kingpin Rancor and Vectron Magnus still drops from the slot machines but are also purchaseable with Golden Certificates.
Costs to gamble have gone up. Smuggler chips now costs 2k each (up from 1k) and Kingpin chips now costs 75k each (up from 50k).
New quest to use your macrobinoculars to scan for cheating.
There is a repeatable quest (daily?) to scan for cheating at the Sabacc tables. Just use the macrobinoculars provided and scan for the tables on either side. There are about 12 targets to scan and one of them is the cheating device (it is random each time). Completing this quick quest give you 1 Kingpin token.
