- extensive, ample; obtain, win; gamble

I chose this versatile character today firstly because I went to Plymouth, were I gave a short talk about my PhD (PhD = 博士) work as part of an interview, and secondly because, when I got back, I immediately went to the Natural History Museum (museum = 博物馆) in Oxford for the Son et Lumière event (seeing the museum with no lights, or rather some oddly coloured lights plus smoke). This character is also used phonetically in the word for blog, 博客. I hadn't realised that it could mean 'to gamble', as in the word for lottery, 博彩. What a great little character.
