At 1st level, A gambler starts play with a luck point equal to his gambler level plus those granted from any luck feats he or she has taken over time.

This ability cannot be spent upon more than once a turn.
Double Down (Ex): Come on daddy needs a new pair of criticals!
A Gamblers fortune of action takes on the mass of action against all odds around them. At 6th level, when rolling to confirm a critical hit, you may spend one point from your luck pool to auto-confirm your critical. This can only be done for one attack only per turn. Additionally, a gambler can spend two points from their pool to increase the critical modifier of their weapon for that one attack by +1.
All in bet (Su): You call, I raise, and I don't hold back when I do.
A gambler knows when his chances of success can be rudimentary or ultimately in ruin. At 6th level, when spending a point from their luck pool, a gambler can double their lucky aura bonus for up to 1 round / gambler level. Thus, a +2 aura can become a +4, or a -2 aura can become a -4.

One cannot use the ability of Dealing-In to apply to this method.

At 9th level, When the gamblers health points reaches past 0, they can spend 1 point from their luck pool to stabilize at any negatives equal to, or less than, their con score and retain their life. That characters status is then set to unconscious and stabilized at -1 Hit point.
Triple Jackpot (Su): When I hit a jackpot, I try to hit it BIG baby!
The Gamblers epitome of luck brings him to higher heights than any mortal can conquer. Be it by chance or by destiny, it was as if lady luck herself was by their side.
At 10th level, once a day, when a Gambler rolls against a save DC vs a spell effect, they can expend 3 points from their gamblers luck pool to roll that save 3 times. If one of the 3 saves succeed, they pass the DC normally. If two of the 3 saves succeed, then they become highly resistant to said spell effect on that particular save with a bonus of half their Gambler level the next time they save against it within 24 hours. If three of the 3 saves succeeded, then a gambler is considered immune to said spell effect for the duration of 24 hours for that day. After 24 hours, they loose their immunity to that spell effect.
Alternatively, By spending 3 points from your luck pool you can choose to make a single attack as a standard action and roll 2 additional d20 while doing so. If one attack out of 3 is a hit, you deal regular damage. If two attacks out of 3 is a hit, you automatically critical. If three attacks out of three is a hit, then the target enemy must make a fortitude save of DC 10 + gambler level + charisma modifier or die instantly. When used in such manner triple jackpot is a death effect. Creatures not subject to critical hits are immune to this optional use of the ability.
You can only choose one of the two options once per day.
