      I have a tiny buddah statue I always put on top of my scratch offs for good luck.  I also never scratch at the store, i do it at home at my desk while working

      I like that Buddha idea. I have a sister who has Buddhas all over her house and even outside and she has always been lucky at everything. She never plays the lottery though as far as I know.

        There is also a statue of Ho-Tai, thought of by the Chinese and others as the god of luck. they are very often mistaken for Buddha statues.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              Tiggs you see,  listen to me more often, I hate to say it ...this time no I do love to say it; I told you Luck was a HE IDOL and not a she!!!   So Much for Caling it a She, humm--- I wonder if my mother knew that Luck was a He Idol, whould she  have played Frank's "Luck be a Lady Tonight"  Oh boy; that puts a whole new spin on things!!      Okay Tiggs,  I am not against you been superstitious but if you go  "Awhoring" ( biblicaly Speaking) after some Guy we are finished!!

              forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

              Now, does it count??

                In China, HoTai is the God of GoodFortune and Guardian of Children. His overflowing round shape indicatesabundance of inner wealth and a joy filled soul. Add this bronze Ho Taiholding Bowl statue to you garden or home today!

                  You're right CT, my grandmother had that statue when I was a kid and she said it was Buddha. My mother had it after that and had it along with elephants with raised trunks and she collected owls too. They must be good for longevity if nothing else, cuz she's 92 yrs old now.

                        Yeah, I remember seeing those and also people having horseshoes over their doors. They said you had to have the open end facing up to catch the good luck as I recall.

                            My grandma had a big, ceramic Buddah statue. I got it when she died 9 years ago. I don't know where he is, either. I think he's still in a box somewhere from when we moved. I'm going to have to dig around and find him...maybe that will help my luck.

                            I used to rub his belly when I was a kid, and make a wish. Come to think of it, I was pretty lucky as a child. Wink

                              I think the idea is the open end goes up so the luck doesn't "drain" out of the horseshoe.

                              In one of the casinos I worked in an old-timer told one of the shift bosses that it was good luck for the house to have a railroad spike under the dice tables. Well this casino was right in front of the railroad tracks. The next night we came in to work and guess what was under the five dollar table. The boss had security go out and get a spike right off the tracks.

                              Someone rolled a hand that night on that game. The old-timer told the boss the spike had to be pointing north. Next night, there it was, pointing north.

                              As seen in this thread, gamblers are very supersitious (Not that there's anything wrong with that!). As are casino bosses, trust me on that one!

                              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
