I don't think Mat can give up his gambling, since it was the Pattern that chose that habit for him, and he will need it to help fight the Dark One. If nothing else, it already contributed to saving Moiraine, who is critical to Rand's success, according to Min (unless there is some other woman who is dead and gone that Min was thinking of, which doesn't seem likely-it would be funny if that viewing was about Lanfear though).

I also think that the whiny Mat has redeemed himself, becoming the General and embracing his fate rather than running away from it. And he does take his lumps with more humor than mopey Perrin and Rand.
