The Gambler has long lived life on the edge, lending herself to the whims of fate. While this makes her an ardent player, it also once bound her to the top of a goblin fortress.
Bound Gambler
Bound Gambler.png

The Gambler is an NPC vendor that sells various chance themed items. She can be found in the Arcane Tower as a Bound Gambler. Similar to other bound NPCs, talking to her allows her to claim a house and respawn when killed. She may also spawn naturally in worlds with a Bandit Hideout, as long as there is a valid house and the player has 1 Gold Coin in their inventory.

When threatened, she will throw Gold Coins at enemies.
