Diablo 2 Resurrected Card Counter achievement: Acquire a unique item from gambling.
Items shown in the gambling window are always normal quality (with the exception of Coronets, which are technically exceptional, even though they have two upgrade types; Tiaras and Diadems). No one wants a normal item though (unless they’ve got a runeword in mind) so the real fun in gambling is hoping to score a higher quality item, ideally of exceptional or elite type. The odds to determine item quality are fairly simple:
These odds are unaffected by any other factor. Clvl, item type, players in the game, magic find, etc. Just gamble and cross your fingers.
The odds that item types will upgrade to exceptional and elite are more complicated to calculate. They depend on Clvl and ilvl. Higher level characters are more likely to get exceptional and elite items, and lower level items are more likely to upgrade to exceptional and elite. The formulas are as follows:
Does gambling all the items in window increase chances of getting Uniques/sets?
No, it doesnt. Only Characterlevel affects gambling. (And Gheed’s fortune grand charm and Edge Runeword for prices)

One NPC in each town has a gambling option on their interface. It does not matter which NPC you gamble with, or on which difficulty level you do your gambling. The odds are the same with all of them, and are determined entirely by your character’s level. Nothing else matters: not the number of players in the game, or the difficulty level, or your magic find, etc.
The only thing that affects gambling are items (such as Gheed’s Fortune, an Unique Charm) that lower the prices charged by vendors. And those only help by letting you gamble more items with the same amount of money.
I wanted a Gull Dagger which has 100 magic find, I use this on my magic find Sorceress on weapon switch and do the final hit for an added chance at getting better drops.
I leveled a character to level 11 and collected gold from the shared stash, I believe you can only carry 110k at a time at that level.
I then gambled the dagger until the achievement popped, I think it cost abit over 2 million gold.
You can press R3 to refresh the items on the gamble screen until one appears.
The dagger only costs 1607 gold a piece at level 11 and goes up with each level.
please note it’s a 1 in 2000 chance to gamble a unique item.
The reason you should get to level 11 is because of how item levels and character levels work, I believe you can only gamble items +5 or -5 of you character level, the item level of Gull Dagger is 5 so you will always guarantee at level 11 that you can gamble it.
A better way to make the most of your cash when gambling:
– When you have amassed a large amount of gold, place the gold in your shared stash.
– Make or log into a level 1 character then level it to 11.
– Take the money out of your shared stash (level 1 characters can only carry 10,000 gold at once)
– Go to Gheed in Act 1 and select ‘Gamble’
– Look for a dagger in his gamble window (if it is not there then press L3 (left thumb-stick down) to refresh the window)
– Now keep buying daggers to fill your inventory. Now remember you do have a 1/2000 chance to get one so this can take some time but is cheaper then gambling with a high level character.
– Sell back any dagger that are not needed (this will help towards vendoring 1,000 items)
There is no fixed answer to this, since it depends on what you’re trying to gamble. As characters increase in level more types of items are offered (see the table below) and more Modifers become available. This is good and bad; good if you’re after higher level affixes, bad since more possible affixes mean lower odds for each one to appear.
If you’re after a specific modifier, or group of modifiers, you’ll want to compare the Alvls of those items. (See the prefixes and suffixes pages.) You’ll need to exceed the Alvl of an item to have it in the available modifier pool, though there is some randomization to the levels of items and modifiers when gambling (explained below).
There are also sweet spots, when good modifiers are available, but before additional modifiers become possible and dilute the odds of getting the good ones you want. If, for instance, the modifier you want on a glove is Alvl 50, and you notice that seven more modifiers become possible on gloves at Alvl 60, you’ll have better odds of getting the modifier you want before the ilvls of items exceed 60. See the details on determining Alvl and ilvl further down this page.
The best items to gamble in Diablo 2 Resurrected are:
These items all have the potential to roll some very good attributes, making them best-in-slot gambling items. However, you could also roll for lower-level items if you are in the process of leveling. Some good low-level gambling items are boots, gloves, and belts if you have some extra gold on hand.
The best stats you should aim for are plus all skills, faster cast rate, faster run and walk speed, raw stats, resistances, and, of course, sockets. When gambling on rings, you should aim for a faster cast rate, double attributes, life, mana, and resistances. You can go for a double leech ring as well, depending on your class.
One thing to note is that your character level (cLvl) determines the item level (iLvl) of what you’re gambling. The item level of your gambled item can be +4 or -5 of your character level. In other words, if you are level 90, you can roll up to a 94 item level or as low as an 85 item level on a gambled item.
Lets take some practical examples!
We will choose a character at clvl 80 for our first 2 examples, and compare with a character at clvl 99.
Let us assume a specific gambling window as an example. Lets take the normal unique item Frostburn, completely arbitrarily.
So the total chance on average of getting frostburn at a single given gamble window is 12/125×75,7/100×1/2000=908,4/25 000 000=
1/27520=0,0036%, or, if we assume we get gauntlets in the gambling window, 1/2642= 0,04%
TL:DR – The chance of getting Frostburn unique at clvl 80 is 1/27520 in a single gambling window, or 1/2642 if gauntlets appear in the gambling window TL:DR
Bloodletter (The easiest exceptional unique to gamble) clvl 99
TL:DR – The chance of getting Bloodletter in a single gambling window is 1/33016 and if short sword appears in gambling window ts 1/3169. TL:DR
Tyraels Might (On of the most difficult items to gamble)
Lets take another example, now with Tyraels might, since many people ask this.
The lowest clvl that tyraels can appear in the gambling window is 79, and the highest possible clvl you can have in game is 99, so lets compare those 2.
TL:DR – The chance of gambling Tyraels Might unique at clvl 79 is 1/ 693 750 000 ( or 1/ 69 375 000 without rarity factor) in a single gambling window, or 1/ 66 600 000 (or 1/ 6 660 000 without rarity factor) if sacred armor appear in the gambling window. The chance of gambling Tyraels might at clvl 99 is 1/ 3 706 998 – 1/ 5 247 691 – in a specific gambling window with rarity factor ( 1/ 370 699,8 – 1/ 524 769 – without rarity factor) or if you get ancient armor in your window its 1 / 355 981 – 1/503 778 with rarity factor or 1/ 35 587 – 1 / 50 377, 8 without rarity factor TL:DR
