SWTOR Nightlife Event Guide
The Nar Shaddaa Nightlife Event is an annual time-limited event in Star Wars: The Old Republic taking inspiration from the high roller lifestyle of characters such as Lando Calrissian and now also Canto Bight introduced in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The Nightlife Event invites you to participate in the extravagant chase for Lady Luck by helping out the Casino personal and playing the slot machines to your heart's content.
You can participate already from level 10, starting on the Fleet, although the Event is centralised on Nar Shaddaa as well as on Mek-Sha for those who crave a change of scenery. New Daily Missions and rewards await all those flushed with credits.

How to gamble most efficient.
What you want to do is to start at the Smuggler's Luck Machines (Green machines) until you get a buff called "Feeling Lucky" which will last for 2 min. Be aware that many players will optimise by occupying two machines.
While you have the "Feeling Lucky" buff, you move onto the Kingpin's Bounty (Purple machines).
Or go straight to the Emperor's Grace Machine (Big and gold).
Note: There aren't as many of these machines at the Casino, so be prepared to stand in queue once in a while. Be nice.
Once you have won a prize or the buff runs out, you will lose your buff and you repeat the process.
