Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Gambling Guide

Gambling is a very fun and rewarding mini-game in Zelda Breath of the Wild that can easily fill up your coffers with rupees...

There are a lot of mini-games in Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s open world to keep you entertained and distracted from monotonous tasks. One such game is Zelda: Breath of the Wild gambling. As in the words of the shop owner himself, “It is absolutely not illegal“.

You bet some rupees and in return, there is a chance to earn more than you initially bet. Rupees play an important role in upgrading your armor by unlocking Great Fairy Fountains. So, making a few extra rupees without working is never a bad idea. Right?

How to gamble in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Clyone will explain the rules of gambling in Zelda BOTW to Link which are pretty simple. You bet some rupees and in turn, you get a chance to open one of the three treasure boxes at the end of the room (these are the secret boxes that can’t be opened permanently). You can either bet 10, 50 or 100 rupees.

For 10 rupees, the maximum reward is 20 rupees (red). If you gamble 50 rupees, you can win up to 100 rupees (silver). For 100 rupees, the reward is actually 3 times more, 300 rupees (gold). The minimum reward is one rupee (green).

Gambling game in Zelda BOTW is totally luck based. There is no trick or science to this game. Rupees appear randomly in the treasure chests. Once you open a chest by playing a gambling game, the next order of rupees in the treasure chests is pre-determined by the game.

However, there is a little trick to always winning the gambling game in Zelda BOTW (sort of). Play one gambling game with Clyone using 100 rupees. Even if you win or lose, make a manual save point right there. Play another game. If you lose, reload the game and select another box. Repeat it to win 300 rupees.

Overwrite the save and repeat this whole process. It can be time-consuming, but it will stop you from losing those precious rupees and guarantee you +200 coins every time you gamble in Zelda BOTW.
