The Gambler (ギャンブラー Gyanburā?) is a recurring Board type Extreme Gear in the Sonic Riders series. Its primary function is to manipulate the Rings the player has collected through the course, being able to double the number of Rings, depending on the player's place in the race.

Game appearances[]

Sonic Riders[]

Gear used by a legendary gambler.


— Description, Sonic Riders[1]

Description[]

The Gambler made its first appearance in Sonic Riders. According to its profile, the Gambler was once used by a legendary gambler. It can be purchased at the shop for 4,000 Rings.

The Gambler is designed as a rather rectangular board. It is mostly colored earth yellow, with a smaller rectangular silver-colored foot panel with brown borders on to the top surface. Also, on the front and rear on the Gambler, it has smaller brown segments, with dark grey markings on them.

Abilities and traits[]

As a Board-type Extreme Gear, the Gambler is well-balanced in its attributes with average statistics, an average rate of fuel-consumption and is suited for general riding.

The Gambler has poor basic stats, but if the player positions first while it is equipped, the Rings earned are doubled. However, the drawbacks of the Gambler is that it consumes more Air than the standard Gear and the player cannot use their character's Type Ability.
