Closely related: Are the cards at the end of payday pre-determined?

As the evidence seems to point that the card reward on payday is determined when you enter the selection screen rather than at the moment or reveal, would I still get the reward if I entered the selection screen but left the lobby before picking a card?

  • We can only speculate unless the developer comments on this topic. Even in the linked question the current answer is speculation. The Steam acheievments can be explain with other answers. – Ramhound Sep 23 '13 at 14:13

Yes you get the reward if you leave the selection screen before picking the card as stated in this steam community post: http://steamcommunity.com/app/218620/discussions/0/864978835547337363/#p1

You actually are [simply given a random reward]. This has been tested and proven several times over. When you get to the card-picking screen, your reward is already chosen and awarded to you before you even turn a card.

When you get to the card screen, you can leave the game without picking a card, and you will still have the pre-determined reward in your inventory.

    @3ventic Which is just plain stupid because this means the card picking is just plain bullsh*t. I've been picking cards and groaning that I've picked the wrong one and now it turns out I haven't been picking the wrong ones but they are just handing me the wrong ones! – Lyrion Sep 23 '13 at 19:21
