rally cap

I am currently testing this on my secondary account. If tonight I do get the cap on that account as well then it means I discovered the exact method of obtaining it.

Not sure if anything else triggers it as I did nothing else but play lots of Bingo before I decided to log off for 24 hrs to test this.

Going to post my results from my secondary account to see whether or not the 24Hr method does indeed work or..if maybe something else is needed but I kinda doubt it does.

Maybe you just has to be back after 24 hrs but not go over 48 hrs im guessing?

Its possible, yet it still eludes me as to how I got it on my main account since I haven't logged off for more than 24 hours before.  Maybe 12 hours, but not more than 24.

Unfortunately I have to debunk your theory OmegaXXII.  Using an alternative account, I left the Bingo room at exactly 2:31 AM.  I signed back into the game at exactly 2:32 AM the next day.  The Rally Cap was not in my inventory.  So I thought I'd do some additional testing.  I went to the Lobby, still not there.  I went to the Blackjack Room, still not there.  I went to the Dance Club, still not there.  I went to the Poker room, still not there.  Checked the cashier machine again, still not there.  Went and checked out all 4 stores, and still not there (mind you I made sure to go to every single room and every single store yesterday).  I played the Free Poker game and won it for a second day in a row, still not there.  I did my tasks, still not there.  I collected the daily task reward, still not there.  I pulled the super slot machine, after pulling it yesterday, still not there. I went to my hotel room again, still not there. I went to the same exact fish and chips slots machine I was at yesterday, still not there.  Went to the same war table and position as yesterday and still not there.  Went to machine games, craps, big 6, blackjack table, all in the same seats I played yesterday, and still not there.  Went and played in the fountain and wasted another 3,000 chips without getting the monthly item, and the rally cap was still not there. (I've counted the chips and thrown at least 5,000 chips on the other account without getting the reward so far).  Played a free bingo game, and still not there.  So I have no idea what it means to be "I'm back" since its not after 24 hours, not after being logged out and logging right back in, not playing another game again, not sitting in the same seat as before.. not the stores.. nothing..  So I don't know how they just MAGICALLY appear in your inventory.  Of course if someone would tell us from DL then we'd know..  This mystery thing that they are doing is probably nothing more than..  oh you just get it at random not from doing anything special at all type of thing.  They don't want to tell even the some of us who already have it since we don't know how we got it without any notifications and how its not in the Male avatar inventory.  So I think its just all made up at this point.

It is definitely a procedure that you can duplicate every time to get the cap.  Not having the notification will make it quite hard to deduce though.  We'll sort that out in the next update.

According to Wikipedia:

"A rally cap is a baseball cap worn inside-out and backwards or in some other unconventional manner by players and/or fans to will a team to a come-from-behind victory late in a game. The rally cap is primarily a baseball superstition but has been adopted in various forms in other sports such as hockey."

Also:

"Generally speaking, the belief behind the rally cap is to sacrifice a small amount of one's dignity in exchange for a little luck for one's team. It is widely understood that the baseball cap must be one depicting the logo of the team in order to be used as a rally cap."

Not sure how this would apply to the Casino but "sacrifice a small amount of one's dignity in exchange for a little luck" and "come-from-behind victory late in a game" seem like possible avenues of experimentation. Poker comes to mind for a come from behind victory.

Poker was another avenue of thought as to a way to get the rally cap.  Yesterday when I was on my alternate account testing out different things, I was playing my free poker game.  Sat down with 6 people, I was about to go out with only 8,000 chips left in my hand.  I had to put them all in just to play the next round, and I came all the way up and won the game.  I still don't have the rally cap on that account.  Now unless I was still not enough behind, or not forced by a blind to play the next hand or something like that, I'm not sure.  Others have reported just getting it after logging back in, when they don't remember having it before that.  I'm still unsure of the answer to this.

You need to come back to Four Kings after one day. A friend told me that she and her friends did try this and gotten the hat easily afterwards. Also, it's not a random reward unlock like the fountain reward or the lucky penny ring.

Omega and I had thought this be the answer as well.  We tried it on alternate accounts and it didn't work.

So here's some info I received from another player who has the rally cap as a male avatar.  A player I encountered said they sat down at a video poker game with only 1,000 chips.  They started playing and got a royal flush which earned them 50,000 chips.  When they got the royal flush, they received a notification saying they received the Rally Cap. They said they left the video poker game with 60,000 chips.  I don't know if this applies to people with very low amounts of chips or if it would apply to anybody. My female avatar has this item and yet I never received a notification before I noticed I had acquired the rally cap.  I know I've never gotten a Royal Flush in video poker or even a straight flush.  Since the rally cap came out I haven't even gotten 4 of a kind. I've gotten a regular flush and a straight but nothing that would give me 50,000 chips.  It would be nice to know if we are even close to being on the right track here.

It's too bad that they got the royal flush with a minimum bet, it would've been 800,000 chipsĀ on a maximum bet. Perhaps the rally cap only pops for minimum bet large wins on machine games. I'll keep playing video blackjack for that four dealer blackjack reward to see if it pops on a minimum bet.

Sitting down with John friday while playing Poker, I tried pressing him for more information about the rally cap.  He claimed this is an easy thing to do, to get the rally cap, and that it can be achieved on any game.  Not quite sure what he meant by easy, because if it was easy, I'd figure I'd have it by now for my male avatar.  From the way it sounds, it's something where you lose a lot on, and then come back.  Yet on wednesday, while playing VIP poker, I was down to my last 1,000 chips in hand, and came back to win the entire game, and nothing.  I also played War in VIP.  I lost about 50,000 chips, and then came back and won 150,000 chips, and still no rally cap for my male avatar.  About a week ago while playing Bingo, I played 10 games in a row with no wins, and then won a progressive game.  Still nothing.   I have it for my female avatar so I have to wonder if this is some sort of glitch which won't allow me to get it for my male avatar now.  Hopefully we'll eventually get the answer for this.  Or even why some of us have it for our female avatars yet its not checked off in rewards and we never got a notification about it.

Wow, a lot of info, lol I was thinking something maybe going completely broke then getting free chips and getting a big win. lol Sounds kind of stupid, but I was thinking back when I went completely broke to get that Gunny sack outfit, and then I got that Royal Flush in video poker. I mean of course it's hard to say if I got it then since it's glitched for not marking it as achieved. So not too sure.. Lol I hope we figure it out soon!!

Will this upcoming update also fix the issue that some of us have the rally cap as a female but not as a male and that it isn't checked off?

We'll take a look at that today.  Should be able to give it to you without an update.

So have we figured out how to even get this item yet on PS4?

No, not yet.

I inspected you in VIP and you HAVE this item. You must have known where you got it? or what you were doing when it popped up. Want to fill us all in?

I found the rally cap in my male inventory on Valentine's Day, never got the reward announcement. The only thing I've been doing lately is working on getting RPs by moving up the tiers (in War, Craps, and Big Six). I advanced at least three tiers in each of these games. Perhaps playing a game constantly for a sustained period, losing, winning, advancing through the tiers (earning RPs and chip bonuses) earns the rally cap. Keep checking your inventory. Good luck!

So far I don't think anybody has received a notification of earning the cap.  I know I never did. If you're moving up in Big 6, then I better watch out for you.  I'm currently in 5th place right now.

Yes, if you noticed in previous responses I even took screenshots of having the rally cap, for my female avatar.  Until about 2 weeks ago, i didn't have it for my male avatar.  I contacted tech support about it and they told me that since I had it, that it wouldn't be any problem to make sure its available for my male avatar either.  I never received a pop up notification for it.  So I have no idea how I obtained it in the first place.  When DL_John was in game one day I tried to get more information about how to acquire it, which he was very reluctant to say much, but he basically said that you can get it by playing any game.  Other than that, I still don't have any more information about it.

Reviving this thread from the dead, as I also got a Rally cap (POST High Rollers) with no pop-up notification AND its still unchecked in the rewards list, so you might want to take another look at this.

I remember getting a notification for mine when it popped roughly 3 weeks ago..  I used my final 1,000 to enter the slot tournament in mid-April.  If I lost, I was basically out of chips.  Instead I placed first for my segment and won over 100k chips, which was when it popped for me.  My guess is that you basically have to "rally" from virtually no chips (maybe less than 1,000) and win a huge sum (maybe 50,000+).

Yeah, I did the same but with a Blackjack tourney, just sucks it isn't checked off the rewards list.
