Gambling kits originated with the merchant Gostahl who owned the Albatross gambling boat. Many different types of gambling kits were released on the Albatross and through Droughtman's Maze, some with games, some without, all of which held a quantity of silvers, some weightlessly, similar to the effect of the spell Relieve Burden. This feature can be extremely beneficial in the Rift, where there is a limit to how many silvers one can carry out in his/her pockets.
Basic gambling kits hold 5,000 silvers and have no games, some gambling kits hold no silvers. LOOKing in a kit will tell how many silvers are inside. TOSSing the kit will put silvers into the kit from a character's pockets, GATHERing the kit will put the silvers back into a character's pocket.
Basic gambling kits have 2 tiers to unlock. Tier 2 kits are fully unlocked. There is one level above this called "auction" level which may include additional games and hold coins weightlessly.
Fully unlocked "auction level" kits have been released that hold 50,000 silvers with two games, and other kits exist that hold various silver quantities in between, some have even been released with self-knowledge of various spells. Some of the games that might be installed on a gambling kit include Roulette and Adventure Wheel. Gambling kits (unlocked only?) also unfold into a table that can be placed on the ground.
Note: The following information was derived from the case won at Droughtman's Maze 2013.
ANALYZE will tell any alteration restrictions, how many coins the item can hold, the description of the item when placed on the ground, and other standard information.
You analyze your quartz stone case and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions. The creator has also provided the following information: The quartz stone case is fully unlocked with special features. This item must stay a case or kit of some sort. When altering, keep in mind that the case's messaging references it having a small, large, and secret compartment, a cubbyhole, and a narrow slot. The table (on top) cannot be deepened. This item can have a custom description when placed on the ground and can hold 25000 silvers weightlessly. The current description when placed on the ground is a bejeweled quartz stone sideboard with a show/long description of a bejeweled quartz stone sideboard embossed with a coiled maze roa'ter. You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the quartz stone case for you or have its pockets deepened.

Kits can also be PLACEd on the ground, after which they turn into a completely different item. In this example, the case turns into a sideboard.
