Duel Terminal 4, The easiest way to make money in the game of Yugioh.
To anyone playing Yugioh. If you want to make a quick buck, visit your local hobby/card/comic shop and pop a couple of dollars into their Yugioh Duel Terminal! (If they have one)
Here's how it works;
You put money into the machine in $1,$5,$10 and $20 increments. For each dollar, the machine spits out a random "Duel Terminal" card. These cards can be of any rarity, from Common, Rare, Super Rare and Ultra Rare. Obviously, the higher the rarity of the card, the more money it's worth.
In the newest Duel Terminal set (known as DT04 "Duel Terminal 4") there is a very illusive card. This card is so rare and so sought after that it's selling on Ebay for upwards of $170-$200 a piece. Incase your wondering, this card is called "Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier". The chances of getting this card are 1 out of every 300 cards. That means you would need to sit there and put at least $300 into one of these machines in order to get even a single copy. Some people get lucky however, spending minuscule amounts (as low as a single dollar) to receive this treasure. The card you receive per dollar is random, after all.
This isn't the only card in DT04 that's worth more than a dollar. Other common/foil cards range from $5 to $25 a piece. Many of the cards in the set (most of which are common in rarity) aren't worth the cardboard they're printed on.
So far, I've dropped around $80 into a few different Duel Terminal machines. I've been lucky enough to get 2 "Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" along with a handful of other cards worth over $5 a piece. Easily worth the time invested into getting these cards.
So if you play Yugioh and have a local shop that has one of these Duel Terminals, I suggest calling them up asking if they have Duel Terminal Set 4. If they do, It would be a good idea to go and pop a couple of dollars into the machine. Maybe you'll get lucky and get a Trishula!
