    yes you can, but the odds are heavily, heavily stacked against you. I gambled away millions on rings/ammies, and then on my friend's first try he gambled a Mara's ammy =).

    Yes, you can gamble for uniques, but it's not worth it. Better gamble for stuff that can give you good magical or rare items as well, like rings, amulets or circlets/diadems/etc.

    I already gambled a Seraph's Hymn, but that was pure luck, I guess.

    gambling is by far the best way to get rare circlets/ammy's/rings. the odds of getting uniques is about 1/2000 i think.

    Since we can gamble for unique, where is the best act to gamble and on which lvl....normal, nm or hell?

    The chances of gambling uniques are very slim, indeed. Nevertheless, I recently gambled an Atma's Scarab. Today I spent 8 million and it was all crap :(

    Arreat Summit:
    The items you receive will be from most common, to most rare: Magic Items, Rare, Sets, Uniques. Set and Unique Items are extremely rare. The chance for Uniques is 1 in 5,000 and 1 in 2,000 for Sets. The chance for Rares is 1 in 10. The level of quality of the items will be from most common to, most rare: Normal, Exceptional, Elite. The chance for Exceptional items is 1 in 11 (or 9 in 100) and the chance for Elite items is 1 in 30 (or 33 in 1,000).

    It doesn't matter in which act or difficulty you gamble. The only thing that counts is your character lvl.

    the first unique I ever got was on a gamble from Gheed, on the first character I ever built...and it was a sword...go figure. Since then, I've gotten some really good magic/rare rings and ammys, and even the occasional decent boots or belt, but no more uniques...the force was strong with me that day :lol:

    Yeah I used to think that sojs were the best and then frostburns ;)

    I once gambled some normal unique boots, that's all. If the chance is one in 5000 I guess I'm doing average ;)

    I plan on gambling ammy's, so a Mara's should be waiting for me!
