    • This excludes the upgrade "Your lucky cookie", at 260 quadrillion (which is divisible by 13, however).
    • Additionally, the upgrade "Lucky Grandma" is the 13th grandma upgrade in the game.
  • This building has a fixed distance between each building on the X axis, similar to antimatter condensers and prisms. It's probably supposed to make it look like the chancemakers are fixed to its background's vertical stone pillars, though this has been broken sometime after the addition of javascript consoles.
  • The die icon used for the chancemaker and some of its upgrades and achievements features the 1, 4, and 2 sides of the die. 1 + 4 + 2 = 7, a famously lucky number.


  • The "Your lucky cookie" description of the first cookie the player has ever baked might be a reference to Scrooge McDuck's Number One Dime, the first coin that Scrooge McDuck had ever earned.
  • The "'All Bets Are Off' magic coin" upgrade may be a reference to Discworld, in which areas with high background magic may cause coins to do various weird things instead of landing on heads or tails.
  • The achievement "Million to one shot, doc" references a quote from the TV sitcom Seinfeld.
  • The achievement "You'll never know if you don't go" references the popular song All Star by Smash Mouth.
  • The flavor text for the upgrade "Winning lottery ticket" refers to a scene in the game Fallout: New Vegas; in particular, the delirious ramblings of the former Powder Ganger Oliver Swanick.
  • The upgrade "Improbability drive" is a reference to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books, which themselves are parodied in its description.
  • The flavor text for the "Four-leaf clover field" upgrade refers to the titular monster of the similarly named film Cloverfield.
  • The "Be a lady" achievement references the song "Luck Be A Lady" from the movie Guys and Dolls.
  • The achievement "Ever in your favor" is a reference to The Hunger Games, namely the saying "May the odds be ever in your favor".
