The story's narrator is the Banker, he speaks in the Third Person (Limited Omniscient). We only hear the narrator's point of view. We are able to get a sense of the Banker's insights, as he is part of the bet. The Banker remains removed from the situation until the bet comes to an end. We are able to see his desperation and character flaws.
