              Gamblers are probably the most superstitious people in the world and they will do anything to improve their chances of winning.

        Some supertitions that gamblers believe:

        Some players believe the entering and leaving the casino through the same door will bring you good luck. Others believe that it will bring you bad luck.

        Many people believe that blowing on the dice before rolling will give you the best results. Others say that dropping a card during the game will bring bad luck for the card holder.

        It's quite common to hear players who claim that wearing black clothes is bad luck bringer. So don't wear black shirts when you go out to the casino.

        Some very rational players carry a lucky charm or omen when they go out to play. It can be a piece of clothing or some objects that brought you luck in the past.
        Some players keep "known" lucky objects like: rabbit's foot, horseshoe or four leaf clover.

        Some players claim that if you play with someone else's money, you have bigger chances to win. Others say that the whole point of gambling is earning your own money so this is silly.

        Players usually have their own favorite poker table.
        Others have their favorite slot machine or their preferable dealer.

        Many gamblers believe that $50 bills are unlucky and they will not accept being paid with them.

        Never count your money while you are playing is a common belief.

        Don’t cross your legs while playing or you will “cross out your good luck”. (This could explain why they make those seats so close to the slot machines. I never have room to cross my legs even if I was not afraid that it would bring me bad luck.)  :-\


                  I've listed just a few here. Anyone else got any?

        "Today, most of the good people are afraid to be good. They strive to be broadminded and tolerant. It is fashionable to be tolerant but mostly tolerant of evil and this new code has reached the proportions of demanding intolerance of good."

        Don't put your winnings in your pocket, if you're not leaving the table because you will bring it all back out

        I have seen and done this too.

        I believe whatever gets you thinking positive is what works.  If it is the number 6, wearing your island shirt, blowing on the dice, touching your nose when your hand is delt, etc.  Sitting down at the table convinced you are going to loose would be a disaster.  Feeling positive does give you a bit of an edge.........I think!

        How about if you win the first day in vegas you gotta wear the same clothes again the next day.  After all, they were lucky right?  I pity my traveling partners when I win again the second day!  But you gotta do what you gotta do.

        When it comes to superstitions (and i think there is a thread about this in the archives)....my hang up is WHO sits next to me. If a player sits down and i hit a bonus.........i do NOT want them to leave!

        If i'm on a losing streak i pray that they will hit the road jack! Sometimes when im looking for a machine...the person sitting next to that machine fits into my equation. If the player looks like a good luck charm i sit down...if they look like the grim reeper...i move on!!

        Oh yeah.  That's another one.  I am playing a machine and losing and losing and losing.  The guy next to me leaves.  I think good! Now maybe I will start winning.
