A Few Odd and Amusing Asian Gambling Superstitions (Part 3)

Always try to avoid entering the casino through the main entrance, looking for alternative access methods as you will want to take advantage of ‘Feng Shui’ on your side.

Of you are in China or play with Chinese, don’t use the word ‘books’ as it sounds surprisingly similar to the word ‘lose’. No self-respecting gambler should be caught at a table or a casino talking about books.

If possible, always gamble while wearing red as people consider red is a lucky colour with the potential to improve the overall performance.
If players find themselves in the midst of a losing streak, a possible way to bring it to an end is by going to the bathroom and urinating. It’s considered as a quick and easy way of turning the tide in your favour!
Players should make the effort to feed sugar to the “baby ghost” that stands behind every gambling table. Before heading out on any casino trip, praying and making an offering to the gods is highly recommended. In fact, it also is highly suggested for gamblers to pray to the gods around 24 hours before the trip.
Many gamblers also believe that important clues as to the next winning numbers to be drawn can be found in the surrounding world around you. You simply must take a case of looking hard enough!
And there you have it all – it is the gambling superstitions that our eastern friends have been following for as many generations as every single one of them would care to remember.
Just to finish on our initial point; however – allowing superstitions to cloud your judgment is never wise. Even when it seems as if luck really has taken control of things in one way or another, don’t forget that you and you alone have control over every move you take!
