Some Interesting Superstitions and Gambling Talismans to (Not) Try

Roulette Good Luck Charms and Fun Superstitions

Gambling is a fun and exciting activity – so much so that people have developed customs and rituals for it. It’s hard to find a place in the world where gamblers are not very much alike. They all enjoy the activity, whether this is low bet roulette, or something different, and feel exhilaration when they end up winning – whether by chance, “skill” or good fortune.

Today, we take a look at some of the most popular good luck charms in roulette and other gambling games. We will similarly touch on some of the most popular rituals that people use to try and sway Lady Fortune to side with them. None of these are actually proven to influence your odds of winning, but they can be a good way to assuage jarred nerves. Anyhow, here are some of the best choices.

The Four-Leaf Clover

This is definitely your go-to lucky talisman – no two ways about it! The four-leaf clover has become synonymous with good luck and although people believe it’s very rare to find, it really depends on your geography – no two ways about it. Players who are bringing a lucky clover with them generally report feeling more positive even when they lose!

Lucky Underwear, Oh My!

Think a sexy pair of knickers can get your way with Lady Fortune? Well, think away because the Iron Lady is intransigent when it comes to chance. It’s just something that happens and that you have no sway over. Call it Fate if you will, but no matter how excellent the underwear, there will be very little that it can achieve in influencing the odds – unless you are trying to distract a live dealer, which might just work, but then again, revealing garments are not usually allowed on casino floors. There is a dress code for each casino out there, and you will have to rely on your lucky underwear and not be able to show it to anyone very much at all!

The Horseshoe

Think a horseshoe can help you win? Why not? Well, there are a couple of things. The truth of the matter is that nobody really knows why this is considered lucky. The stories go back to the eighth century, and really – it’s anyone’s guess what happened and why, and it doesn’t much make sense. Still, the myth persists and people believe it in earnest – after all, what else do you need than a good myth that has become a half-truth? Listen, bringing your very own lucky horseshoe to the casino floor may be frowned upon or bring forth mirth in other customers, but as long as you know that it’s just a talisman and make believe and use it to keep your nerves calm, it’s perfectly fine.

Your Lucky Number Slevin

Lucky numbers – lucky coins and lucky days. We all have them – or think we do! The scientific evidence may be a little scant but all in all, you will definitely find out some evidence to suggest that people feel and play more confidently when they believe in lucky numbers. Of course, there is a fine balance between when you pick a lucky number based on what you can see before your eyes and when you put your faith in a number rather blindly. Put this way, you want to make sure that you only pick a lucky number when it makes sense to have one! There is nothing to suggest that one number or another would prove luckier in a game of roulette or blackjack. You just need to go with the flow and enjoy yourself.

The Blow into Your Dice Thing

This is a perfect example of people having some rituals when they play roulette or other casino games. Now, most people do not actually think that exhaling air on top of their dice would actually give them a better chance of winning, but most people admit – it does help calm them down and even doubles their excitement if they end up winning.
