Fortune's Choice is a Mini-Game in A Link Between Worlds.[name reference needed]

Overview

Fortune's Choice appears in both Hyrule and Lorule. Each Mini-Game is run by its respective world's Fortune's Choice Guy.

Rules

Both Mini-Games task Link with simply opening his choice of Treasure Chest(s) from a group of available Chests. He wins whichever prizes have been randomly assigned to the Chest(s) he opens. The available prizes are pre-determined.

Hyrule

In Hyrule, Fortune's Choice costs 50 Rupees and allows Link to open one of two Treasure Chests.

Statistically, the average winnings in Fortune's Choice in Hyrule is 50.5 Rupees—only 1% greater than the cost to play—meaning that Link would just barely break even by playing the Mini-Game repeatedly.

Lorule

In Lorule, Fortune's Choice costs 200 Rupees, and Link gets to open three of the 15 Treasure Chests. One of the prizes is a Piece of Heart which, after being collected once, is replaced with a Gold Rupee in subsequent plays.
