    Does anyone know if it matters where you gamble at? I know Clvl comes into play but I don't know if the vender matters.

    A couple months ago I was gambling for an Amulet until I accedentally clicked on a Splint Mail that sat next to a Amulet by mistake. At first, I was angry that I just blew 120k on a stupid Splint Mail until I noticed that it changed color. I scrolled over, thinking it was a rare only to crap myself.

    I gambled a Skullders.

    Information about gambling

    And I Quote:

    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). You will mostly get Magic items which may or may not be worth anything to you (hence Gambling).

    I don't think the NPC has anything to do with what you gamble, except maybe that on normal you can only gamble certain items from the first two gambling NPC's. The most important thing to determine what item you gamble is you Clvl, so you can best give all the gold you find to you highest char, that is, if you want to find high affixes...

    Re: my gamble finally paid off

    Sorry I'm responding to an old post but this thread just got my attention.. That was a great game or great gamble. So how much more have you gambled right now. May be you have gambled trillion of gold.

    Re: my gamble finally paid off

    Reviving one thread from 2004 is okay if it adds something valuable, or complete accident, but two threads on the same topic? Chances are, the OP no longer frequents the forums, so you probably won't get an answer, from him, or most of the others who previously posted in the thread.

    Perhaps make an intro thread (explained in the stickies,) and ask for some tips or advice in the one thread. That way, we get to know you, your playstyle and characters better, can provide more detailed information, and these threads don't keep getting necro'd. ;) The stickied threads at the top of the SPF are a good read through for many frequently asked questions.
