Chapter 4 Sector 5 Slums Market

To start the number-guessing game, you first need to reach the Sector 5 Slums Market area of chapter 4. After that, interact with the Boy to start the number-guessing game after Zack has found his wallet.

This is the same location where you can also complete Good Match For Aerith trophy in the game.

The starting cost to initiate the number-guessing game is 100Gil per play. However, as you keep winning and play again for more rewards, you will get a discount from the Boy. Ultimately, you will still need to pay 50-70 Gil per play if you want to obtain all 12 rewards you can get from this number-guessing mini-game in Crisis Core Reunion FFVII. 

As long as you keep playing the game and win, you can obtain 12 rewards that give more value than the low amount of Gil you spend. We recommend playing the number-guessing game for all the rewards before moving forward from this area of the game to the next one in Crisis Core Reunion FFVII.

Unlocking Bingo Trophy  

You can unlock the Bingo Bronze trophy by participating in a number-guessing mini-game and winning the Blizzard Materia award. However, as mentioned above, you get random rewards every time, so you need to keep playing the game until you get Blizzard Materia. This will unlock the trophy for you whenever you get this item as a reward for winning the game from the Boy. It could be your first turn or 12th; it’s all a random chance. 


That is pretty much everything we had to discuss Crisis Core Reunion FFVII Number Guessing Game. If you’re starting the game, then you must know the locations of Octaslash and Goddess Materia. Or, you can make Zack overpowered for bosses if you get the Magic Pot and Cursed Ring and increase his SP by answering Hojo’s questions.
