In Gran Turismo 7, Roulette Tickets are special prizes awarded for completing some Menu Books, reaching some Collector Levels, and completing your daily training. Roulette tickets are basically a gacha mechanic, similar to loot boxes, where your reward is determined randomly. But are the rewards completely random? Or are roulette tickets rigged?
The answer is yes, GT7 roulette tickets are rigged, at least to some extent. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, manipulated means manipulated or controlled by deceptive or dishonest means. The spinning highlight animation shown when you are dealt a roulette ticket implies quite obviously that there is an equal 1 in 5 chance of winning each of the five prizes on offer as if it were real roulette -Wheel. However, if you’ve gotten a few roulette tickets by now, you know that’s not the case. In fact, we suspect that most, if not always, you won the lowest value prize.
So the probabilities of winning each prize are definitely controlled, and the animation that communicates how the prizes are chosen is arguably a little deceptive. On the other hand, is it really that surprising that you have a much lower chance of winning the higher value prizes? This is perfectly normal practice for gacha mechanics. In fact, in many territories it is a legal requirement that game developers make their exact gacha reward probabilities available to players, but this law only applies if gachas or loot boxes can be purchased with real money. You can’t buy roulette tickets in GT7, at least for now, so Sony isn’t obliged to share the probabilities involved.

Based on what we know about other games and what we’ve experienced in GT7 so far, we think we can give you a rough idea of how roulette tickets actually work. Before the roulette animation even begins, the game has already calculated what your prize will be using probabilities that we assume look something like this:
- Best price (usually a car): 1%
- Second best price: 4%
- 3rd best prize: 10%
- 4th best prize: 25%
- Worst price (small pile of credits): 60%
Of course, these figures are not official or confirmed. They’re educated guesses, reflecting a fairly typical probability distribution for gacha mechanics like GT7’s roulette tickets.
