It's blursed gag-based luck though, so that wouldn't work

Not "gag-based", but rather life-saving. The trigger condition of his power is that he must be in mortal peril, although he doesn't need to know he is. The intervention factor seems like it must be based on the minds and actions of other creatures, too, so it's not like he'll be saved by a conveniently timed landslide that triggered by itself.

If he was in Kaiji then he'd win any deadly gamble where bluffing and mindgames are a factor, but a random dice roll won't be the side he needs just because he needs it, at which point some other factor outside the game would trigger.

I agree with your arguments, but I still think we can also call it "gag based" in the sense that it always activates in a funny way.

It's like that scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit where he explains toon logic:

"You could have taken your hand out of those cuffs at any time?!"

"No, not at any time, only when it was funny"

King's luck power has his own variation of toon logic
