[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Pay attention to the pair of numbers in the two rightmost slots.

    It appears this is a two-digit number that goes up by one each time. Well, almost each time.

Hint Two
    The two leftmost slots don't change very much. They seem to almost always display either 30 or 31. What could be the significance of that?

Hint Three
    The pair of numbers on the left and the pair of numbers on the right go together and form a set.

    Furthermore, the two rightmost slots just cycle through the numbers 01 to 12. What could this mean?

Super Hint
    It turns out that the numbers in the slot machine are dates. Each time, it shows you the last day of a month and the month itself. That should make it fairly simple to work out the next number.

    You don't have to worry about leap years.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Better luck next time!

[edit] When Completed

Correct!

Every four-digit number corresponds to a date - specifically, the last day of a month. The next number in the sequence is the last day of the next month. You just have to watch out for February, which only has 28 days.

Good thing it doesn't deal with leap years!

[edit] Solution

Input the last date of each month.

[edit] Progress

2895 Picarats and 173 Hint Coins.
