Can someone tell me how to play this Magic Deal game w/o having to pay for it? I see screenshots of an IGT website....but when I went to the website it didn't have nothing on it that made it seem like there was a testing game to play. :(

RS - you can play Magic Deal for FREE (no catches, no ads, etc.) using the IGT link in this OP. However, the IGT site is ornery, and you'll have to click at least 2-3 times on the link:

Enjoy!

I don't see any games on that link.

Edit: figured it out. Don't see this game in there.

If it becomes the weekly contest (sounds like it will be starting tomorrow), you'll be able to play it for free during the contest period.

And indeed it is the weekly contest:

A hint to speed things up for those that don't already know; If you double click on the draw button it goes much faster. (And this is true of many of the games).

Load the IGT link in I.E. I had trouble in Chrome (had to load the page anywhere from 3-100 times) but it loaded first try in IE (then again maybe I just got lucky).
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I tried multiple times on FF, Chrome and MS Edge and was never able to get anything.

I got 3 magic cards on my second to last hand at VP.com:



currently in 12th place, and I'd guess by the end of the week that won't even make the top 1,000 :)

I just posted the Magic Card probabilities in the Analyzing Magic Deal thread.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I was shocked to see that the feature raises the payback percentage by more than 1% on some paytables.
