Like the first game, Poker Night 2 features items unlocked through play. Some of these are in-game prizes "where you can deck the entire Inventory in the theme of your choosing". Others are for use outside the game, and depend on what platform you are are playing on.
By winning tournaments you get special unlock tokens. You earn tokens based on your standing in the Tournament.
- 5th Place: No tokens.
- 4th Place: 10 tokens.
- 3rd Place: 20 tokens.
- 2nd Place: 50 tokens.
- Winner: 100 tokens.
You can then spend these tokens on custom art styles for the Chips, Decks and Felts. There are six options for each of these: the default Inventory style, a style related to each of the four opponents, and a Portal style.
When the same style is unlocked and chosen in all three categories, the Inventory itself will be drastically altered to reflect that style. This also includes a special elimination animation for the first player eliminated, and a special victory animation if The Player wins the tournament.
You must collect all four contestant bounties before GLaDOS' bounty will be offered.
- Brock Sampson: The ORB
- Claptrap: 2012 Spike TV VGA Award for "Character of the Year"
- Ash Williams: Necronomicon Ex Mortis
- Sam: Sam's Banjo
- GlaDOS: Paranoia Personality Core.
These items are unlocked by completing various challenges that appear in the game. Availability varies per platform.
