I'm doing the Daily run (today is with The Lost) and something strange has just happened.
I've collected a normal Coin and the message "Luck Up" has popped up.

How is this possible? Is there now a chance of Luck Up collecting coins?

Here are my current items, I don't think this is related to them:

  • Dad's Key
  • Synthoil
  • Virgo
  • Dead Cat

  • I dont have the DLC, but it might have to do with the daily challenge. Just a guess.

When donating for the first time to the Greed Machine after beating Ultra Greed, you unlock the Lucky Pennies achievement. This achievement grants a small chance of replacing the normal pennies with a version that gives Luck Up when you pick them up, that's what's giving you the effect.

  • You are right, but you unlock that penny donating the first penny to the Greed Donation Machine, IIRC. Anyway, I can say that the Lucky Penny is a different pickup itself, because if you have Humbling Bundle every normal penny has the "1+1 free" version, except the lucky one that appears alone.

Jeah, they seemed to have added a chance for a luck up from picking up pennies. Might be related to some kind of "lucky penny". Had that effect a few times now in different runs with different items and different characters, so I am pretty sure that it is not related to any item.
