Profile

As their names would imply, Gamblers rely on chance and luck in battle. Their abilities consist of random effects that are extremely powerful when successful, but quite detrimental if unsuccessful. Gamblers use unorthodox weapons associated with gambling, like dice and playing cards. Their trademark ability is Slots, which allow them to pull slot wheels to initiate attacks based on the results.

Appearances

Final Fantasy VI

Setzer Gabbiani appears as the first Gambler in this game. His weapons consist of dice, cards and darts, and his special ability is Slots.

Final Fantasy VII

Cait Sith has two Limit Breaks, Dice and Slots, which work similarly to Setzer's abilities in Final Fantasy VI. Tifa Lockhart also spins slot wheels in her Limit Break: stopping them correctly powers up her attacks.

Final Fantasy VIII

Though no character in Final Fantasy VIII has a specific Job class, Selphie Tilmitt has the Slots command as her Limit Break. Slots does not actually involve slot wheels in the command, instead Selphie cycles through a random list of spells and numbers, performing the chosen spell the specified number of times when the player executes the command.

Final Fantasy X

Wakka's Overdrive consists of him spinning three slot wheels. Depending on how many symbols the player lines up, and which type of Slots command the player is using, Wakka attacks one or more enemies, the results effecting which elements and statuses the attacks take on, and how many times Wakka attacks.

Final Fantasy X-2

Main article: Lady Luck

The Lady Luck Dressphere is first obtainable in Chapter 3 as a prize from the Sphere Break tournament. The Lady Luck's abilities rely on chance to deal out various effects in battle.

Final Fantasy XI

Main article: Corsair

Corsairs are obtained through a difficult sidequest. Their abilities generate random numbers between one and six (corresponding to rolling a die), and various effects can be activated depending on the results.

Notable features A gambler betting on cats in the Rat Pits.

Gamblers are NPCs found in the Varrock, Ardougne, and Port Sarim Rat Pits. The gamblers in the Keldagrim Rat Pits, however, are given specific names.

The Rat Pits' ability to produce quick cash attracts many local gamblers, ranging from ragged city tramps looking to earn a day's meal to wealthy businessmen and women that do it purely for sport. In the Pits, these gamblers bet on their cats, who attempt to kill rats faster than their opponent.

The inhumane and underground nature of the Rat Pits makes gamblers frowned upon by much of society. Many cats are killed in combat, leaving their owners peniless and often shirtless. This contributes to crime and poverty in cities such as Varrock, and the bars established in the Rat Pits only worsen the matter.

Players cannot bet against the gamblers, and must instead fight with another player. The gamblers are, however, willing to explain how the Rat Pits work and are a point of interest to those on their first visit.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A Devaronian gambler
"It's not whether you win or lose, just how often."
―Herglic gambler, name unknown

Gambling has been a popular form of entertainment in the galaxy for millennia. Some areas of the Old Republic allowed gambling and by the time of the Clone Wars, Senator Simon Greyshade introduced legislation to legalize it throughout the entire Republic. Gambling, in fact, proved quite influential in Galactic history.

"Gambling. Everything here revolves around betting on those awful races."
Shmi Skywalker, speaking of gambling on Tatooine

In particular, Watto and Lando Calrissian were fond of games of chance, with the former losing Anakin Skywalker when Anakin was a slave on Tatooine over a podracing bet and the latter winning (and later losing) the Millennium Falcon via the game of sabacc.

A Herglic gambler

Some species, such as the Herglics, were especially prone to gambling.
