$1 Gets You A Random PC Game–Feeling Lucky?

If you’re feeling lucky, the PC game storefront Green Man Gaming has an intriguing proposition for you. It’s a promotion called Lucky Dip, in which you pay $1 / £1 to see just how lucky you are. Wagering that small sum gets you a random PC game from a pool of several dozen titles. Some of the games you’ve heard of, while others you likely haven’t. The game you receive is left up to chance. Even so, it’s a pretty good deal, seeing as most of the games sell for more than $10 on their own.

Some of the better-known titles on offer include Batman: Arkham Asylum GotY Edition, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Frozen Synapse Prime, Mount & Blade, Magicka, and Rage (which would be a good one to play before the arrival of its sequel). And while most of the games on the list are several years old–*ahem* F1 2015–you’re not exactly putting a lot at risk here.

One caveat is that you’re more likely to win some games than others. Stable Orbit, for instance, has the highest chance of appearing, at 5.24%. Black & White Bushido is the rarest game, with only a 0.07% chance. You can view the odds for all of the games below. The percentages aren’t based on popularity, though, so you have a good chance of getting some of the most well-known titles.

Since the games are given out randomly, there’s a chance you’ll get a game you already own or a duplicate if you play more than once. In either case, GMG is offering no refunds. If you get a game you already own or don’t want, you can visit this thread on the GMG forums to see if anyone wants to trade.
