I'm Pauline, of Sammy and Pauline, the wasteland's most dangerous and notorious criminal couple!

Pauline Wins is an "up-and-coming convict" living with her partner and presumed husband Sammy Wins at their hideout in 2281.


Prior to the events of the game, she and Sammy rob the Vikki and Vance Casino and take Vance's lucky hat, Vikki's bonnet, and Vance's 9mm submachine gun. Although they get caught by Primm Slim, Pauline hacks into him while Sammy steals all of the loot. Afterwards, they head back to Westside to plan a big heist that involves robbing one of the Strip's casinos.

  • There is no Karma or reputation loss for killing either of them and taking their hats, but they do not drop the key or code to the safe when they die. The Courier must either pass the Speech check of 55 or pick the Very Hard lock that requires 100 Lockpick if they wish to open the safe and retrieve Vance's 9mm submachine gun.
  • Regardless of the fact that both she and Sammy state the only gun they possess is Vance's gun, if she becomes hostile to the Courier she will equip a separate submachine gun. Also the couple claims to be very tough, yet if the Courier kills Sammy and then holsters their weapon, Pauline will not attack.
  • She refers to Sammy as Vance several times.[1]


Pauline Wins appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
