Wakka, Final Fantasy X
Slots (スロット, Surotto?), is Wakka's Overdrive in Final Fantasy X. There are three different slots, each affecting the outcome of the attacks differently. Aligning all three doubles the effect. Unlike many iterations of the slots, players can control the outcome completely. Slots are earned in blitzball tournaments.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]
Get the right combination for the ultimate shot!
Wakka's Slot Overdrive gains a power bonus the more time that remains. There are 20 seconds on the timer for all reels.
It follows this formula:
- Damage x (1 + (Time left on the timer)/(2x Total time allocated))
Slots itself is considered a Rank 5 ability, however, each of the abilities are Rank 4.
Wakka's Slots abilities never deal critical hits.
List of reels[edit | edit source]
Element Reels[edit | edit source]
With Element Reels, Wakka spins the slots, with the four magical elements: water, fire, lightning, and ice. If three similar icons (I.e Fire-Fire-Fire) are lined up, Wakka unleashes a blitzball attack of that element on all enemies. If two out of three are the same, Wakka unleashes one attack at a random enemy with that element. If all three are different, Wakka just attacks a random enemy, but with more attack power than a normal attack. This Reel is available from the beginning.
All outcomes have a damage constant of 34.
Attack Reels[edit | edit source]
With Attack Reels, Wakka spins the slots, this time with various attack multipliers: 1 Hit, 2 Hit, and Miss. The stopped multipliers determine how many attacks take place; for instance, if Wakka lines up 1 Hit, 1 Hit, 2 Hit, he would attack random enemies four times. If the symbols lined up are all the same, the attack is doubled; e.g., three 2 Hits will attack 12 times (6 attacks x2).
Status Reels[edit | edit source]
When using Status Reels, Wakka spins the slots, with three different symbols representing different types of status ailments. Matching three reels of the same symbol will launch an attack that hits all enemies, whereas matching two of the same symbol will affect only one random enemy. In both cases, the attack inflicts status ailments depending on the selected symbol. If there are no matches on any slot, a standard attack with increased power will be launched at a random enemy.
The Skull symbol inflicts Poison, as well as Sleep, Silence and Darkness for three rounds, the Down symbol inflicts Full Break, and the Egg-timer symbol inflicts Petrification, or if the enemy or enemies are immune, it delays their next turn considerably and inflicts Slow, if possible, to those with the haste status, thereby removing it.
All outcomes have a damage constant of 34.
Aurochs Reels[edit | edit source]
With Aurochs Reels, Wakka spins the slots, with random combinations of the Element and Status Reels. If the three Besaid Aurochs symbols are lined up, Wakka will unleash a huge non-elemental, non-status attack on all enemies.
All outcomes have a damage constant of 34, except the 3x Besaid Aurochs symbols which have a damage outcome of 72.
Acquiring[edit | edit source]
With the exception of Element Reels, all Slots are acquired by playing blitzball and meeting certain requirements:
- Attack Reels can be acquired in a blitzball tournament.
- Status Reels can be acquired in a blitzball league once the party has appeared in 250 battles outside of Monster Arena and after unlocking Attack Reels.
- Aurochs Reels can be acquired in a blitzball tournament once the party has appeared in 450 battles (cumulative amount of times) outside of Monster Arena and after unlocking Status Reels.
If the player is having difficulty getting the Reels to appear as prizes, using Reset Data when the conditions are met for a Reel to be acquired will almost always bring the Reel up as a prize.
Other appearances[edit | edit source]
