This is the first time I’ve ever done the Nightlife Event since its inception, and I am so glad I waited to do it. So there are two ways you can go about getting all of the coveted rare items from this event. The first is to slog it out doing repeatable quests and endless hours collecting enough chips to play the machines and win. I don’t recommend this although unless you’re a character with an infinite supply of credits, you’re going to be forced to do this. The second is my preferred method which is just throw as much money at the slot machines until you get what you want.
Since I have acquired a somewhat decent amount of credits over the years of playing this game, I had no issues throwing credits at the machines. It took me a few hours to win all the items I wanted bar one which I can’t currently get until the patch because it’s bugged. But I managed to get one armour set that I liked, one weapon, and TWO rare companions which I was stoked about. One of them can be gained by playing on the King Pin Bounty Slot Machines:
Gamorrean Guard Companion:
Either way, you’re going to end up out of pocket if you want to acquire everything like I did. I spent more than 100 million today, but I got every item I wanted, all the mounts except one and I managed to score one of the rarest companions as a drop from the slot machines. It’s such a pity that you can’t trade the drops you get because I have a spare one of Phrojo and about three of the mounts as well which will now just collect dust in my cargo hold.

The armour set I also collected:
I have 11 special Emperor chips and, I am going to try my luck at getting the new mount once the update patches the game this Wednesday. So I guess it’s still a bit of “best of luck” since the item is random, but I have 11 chances to win it, so fingers crossed!
