Overview

Located in Lurelin Village, the All or Nothing mini-game is classic Treasure Chest Game. After betting some rupees, Link has the option to pick one of three treasure chests. One of the treasure chests will have the primary reward, where as the other two treasure chest will be duds, with insignificant prizes.

Strategy

It might seem as if there is no strategy to winning the game, which is true, as it is completely random which of the three treasure chests has the primary reward. However, there is some logic in the betting amounts that Link can make.

If Link bets 10 rupees, the prizes in the three chests will include a Green Rupee, a Green Rupee, and a Red Rupee. Meaning, after betting 10 rupees, on average, the return on your winnings rounds out to just over 7 rupees. It is not worth playing for 10 rupees.

If Link bets 50 rupees, the prizes in the three chests will include a Green Rupee, a Green Rupee, and a Silver Rupee. Meaning, after betting 50 rupees, on average, the return on your winnings rounds out to just over 17 rupees. It is not worth playing for 50 rupees.

If Link bets 100 rupees, the prizes in the three chests will include a Green Rupee, a Green Rupee, and a Gold Rupee. Meaning, after betting 100 rupees, on average, the return on your winnings rounds out to just over 100 rupees. Meaning from an odds perspective, this is the only variation that is worthwhile to play.
