The Hidden Gem: Hot Pot Minigame

So, let’s get to the good stuff. One of the best ways to earn quick money in Palia is by playing the hot pot minigame.

Trust me when I say you’ll make coins fast and have a lot of fun!

Finding the Hot Pot Minigame

The game is purposely hidden to give it a cool, underground vibe. It’s tucked away down in The Sewers. The entrance is right behind the Remembrance Garden. I’ve included a couple of pictures to help you find it:

It won’t be hard to miss the hot pot tables when the games are going, because tons of players will be standing around them. They know it’s good money!

Important: The hot pot game is only available from 6 PM to 3 AM, so you’ve got to plan your visit.

You’ll also notice that the black market is also down there. Once you’re further ahead in the game, you’ll also receive keys from Zeki and Reth to get there even easier.

How to Play

The hot pot minigame is super fun and pretty straightforward. The goal is to create three sets of three tiles each. Here’s the scoop on the two types of sets you can form:

  1. Three-of-a-Kind Set: Three tiles with the same category and same ingredient.
  2. Category Set: Three tiles of the same color category but different ingredients.

You’ll be playing with up to three other players, and the game kicks off once everyone is ready or after a 90-second wait if the room isn’t full. You draw tiles from a central pile, discard the ones you don’t need, and aim to form your sets.

The first person to complete their sets clicks “Let’s Eat!” to win the game.

The game can be really quick or last many, many rounds depending on what tiles people need to complete their sets. I’ve had some hot pot games that only last 4 rounds and some that went on for 20 rounds! The game goes until someone wins.

Hot Pot Scoring

Now, let’s talk money. You earn points based on the sets you complete:

  • Three-of-a-Kind Set: 120 points
  • Category Set: 60 points
  • Winning Hand Bonus: Varies

On top of that, you get table points from all matches made during the game.

That’s why the optimal hotpot strategy is for everyone at the table to try and get three-of-a-kind.

This reddit user said it best: “I was playing hotpot and realized something. Since we basically share the points of the table wouldn’t it be beneficial if everyone just went for a 3 of a kind for all of their sets to maximize the amount of tickets everyone at the table gets?

How Much Money You Earn Playing Hot Pot

You earn the same amount of coins, as the amount of points. So, let’s say the round ends with 195 points, you’ll get 195 coins.

So the better the table does, the more coins you earn!

I’m still trying to figure out how much earning potential there is with Hot Pot, but from what I’ve personally experienced, it’s a good amount!

This reddit user claims, “The most you can get at a table by yourself is like 360 but it’s possible to clear 1000 without winning at a table with multiple players”

You can also get ‘Lucky Envelopes‘ if the table gets a really high score, which I haven’t experienced yet. 🥲

Tips and Tricks for Winning

Here are a few tips I’ve picked up from countless games:

  1. Get There Early: The game is only available for a limited time, so make sure you’re there by 6 PM to get a spot. Tons of players will be waiting.
  2. Watch and Learn: Pay attention to what tiles others are discarding. It can give you hints about their strategies.
  3. Play a lot: The more you play, the better you’ll get. At first, I barely understood what was going on, so I didn’t win. But I quickly picked it up and now I’m addicted.

The hot pot minigame in Palia is my go-to for making quick money. It’s fun, strategic, and if you play your cards right, very rewarding. So next time you’re in Palia, head over to The Sewers from 6 PM to 3 AM and give it a shot.
