Superstitious Gamblers

9 replies • Last post

Hi CL and company!

Being superstitious and the gambler go hand in hand. We all have moments where we need that to wear that lucky shirt, talk to the machine or or pull the handles instead of the button to spin.

I know for me i get superstitious if i am on a winning streak and the person next to me get up to leave at the land casino. I feel like saying nooooooooo please don't leave! Or i am winning and someone sits down next to me and i will think........noooooo don't sit next to me your going to jinx me!

When it comes to gambling online i have to admit i can get a bit superstitious too! Sometimes i have to place that cursor just so when i am on bonus round. Never, ever gravitate my cursor off that slot machine!!! Or sometimes if my luck isn't so good i will get up and go sit in another room to play!

Do you have any superstitions?

No superstitions here ... just spin or deal and pray to the gods of random luck

i cant say i am really superstitious ... except i always play the same numbers in the lotto. they are supposed to be my lucky numbers but thats not really working out so far is it? :\\

as for people sitting next to you at the casino - if its some fat smelly guy with a barrell sized beer gut sitting down its time to leave whether you are winning or losing!

Not sure if its a pet peeve or a superstition but I hate it when i'm at the casino, minding my own business while playing either BJ or sometimes video poker, and someone comes up to me and asks me for money so he or she could gamble. Somehow the mood or vibe changes for me and it never fails - down the drain my money goes. Once I'm done playing or taking a break, I have no problem in lending out some coin but I hate being asked while i'm in the middle of playing.

So right ... people trying to bum chips off you in the casino seriously dampens the mood. I feel annoyed and sorry for them at the same time.

Hello dear
This is very obvious and I think happening with everyone. When I win any game, I start marking what are the thing I did few minutes back. And start doing the same thing at next time I play. This is very common with all the who play any game.

I like to auto-play, and my superstition is that if I'm looking at the reels spin, I won't win. I will set it to spin, and have to walk away, leave the room, shrink down the screen, something. LOL, BUT if I win free spins, I HAVE to watch, so I set the games to stop when the feature is won. it's bizarre.

Hiya elck,

It's not bizarre! I think as a gambler we all have a bit of superstition in us. I have seen players at the land casino cover some of the reels and all of the reels while playing. If you think it brings you good luck then go ahead and do it! The power of positive thinking!
