The Ecclessis Figg Room was a gambling chamber in the elaborate complex of the Trest casino in Cloud City,[3] the floating settlement above the gas giant Bespin. It was named after Ecclessis Figg, founder of the city.[4][5] The room contained a bar, a table suited for card-playing and a gallery for spectators. One of the room's door led to an open balcony which offered the panorama of the city.[3]

A year after the Battle of Yavin, Baron Administrator Dominic Raynor invited the professional gambler Lando Calrissian to the room for a game of sabacc. Lobot, the city's computer liaison officer escorted Calrissian to the room, where the gamblers played two matches. In the first match, the Baron Administrator won the pot, including Calrissian's Mu-class shuttle, the Cobra. However, as Lobot revealed, the party was rigged by the dealer, who was hired by the businessman Barpotomous Drebble, an enemy of Calrissian. The gambler didn't had any money to continue the play, but Lobot handed him a large sum, the anonymous gift of the fifty thousand workers of the city. In the second match, Calrissian won risked everything and eventually won the entire city from Raynor. After the match and the change of the city's leadership, Lobot revealed to the new Baron Administrator that he rigged the second match to give the city into the hands of a less corrupt man, Lando Calrissian.[3]
