How to Solve ‘A Gambling Man’ in Octopath Traveler 2

The “A Gambling Man” side story is one you might happen upon early in Octopath Traveler 2, especially if you have Throne in your party. However, it is one you can’t solve unless you have another ally in your party who’s good at investigating. You need someone capable of getting information to help keep the New Delsta gambling addict husband from losing more of his wife’s money.

After you meet the couple south of gambling parlor in New Delsta, you’ll need to head north to the gambling parlor itself. In the back room, you’ll see the Dealer NPC. If you have someone on-hand who can get information, you can find out what you need to save that marriage. I used Osvald and had him Scrutinize the Dealer. (He’ll have fairly good odds of succeeding at level 15 or higher.) You’ll get “The Truth of the Game Parlor” for your efforts.

From there, head back to the couple in New Delsta. You can then talk to the wife and provide her with the truth about the Game Parlor. Once you do, the husband will realize his mistake. As thanks for completing “A Gambling Man” in Octopath Traveler 2, you’ll get a Victory Ring and an Energizing Pomegranate.
