This is the one hundred and fifteenth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Drake. In order to solve this puzzle, you must predict the numbers that will appear next in accordance with a certain rule.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Since there's a rule that determines the next number, the only way you can start working it out is by activating the slot machine and comparing the new number that appears to the first one.

    It gets easier the more numbers you have to compare. Don't be shy--you can spin the reels up to four times before you even need to give an answer. Just don't forget to write down the numbers as you go along!

Hint Two
    So following on from Hint 1, what numbers have come up so far? Compare them and see if you notice anything. It may look like completely unrelated sets of numbers, but there must be some kind of rule determining what will appear next.

    Have you considered looking at each reel on its own?

Hint Three
    Activate the slot machine four times, and write down all the numbers one above the other.

    Next, look at the rightmost column of numbers. Do you notice anything about them? This digit seems to change by the same amount every time.

    Now compare the others to see if there's a similar pattern!

Super Hint
    Based on Hint 3, you've probably realized that the rightmost digit increased by one each time, 9 changed to 0, but remember that 0 can also be taken as the rightmost digit of the number 10!

    The other digits also increase by a fixed amount each time. If you can work out how much each one goes up by, predicting the next number should be a walk in the park.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Remember, there's a rule that determines the next number. There's no use in just guessing at random numbers!

[edit] When Completed

Correct!

From left to right, the digits increase by the following amount each time:
4, 3, 2, 1

How many spins did it take you to get it?

[edit] Solution

Input the numbers that add 4, 3, 2, and 1 to each respective number.

[edit] Progress

3795 Picarats and 214 Hint Coins.
