Online Bingo Players Believe in Luck

Published Sunday, March 29, 2009 -

According to the English dictionary, the term luck is defined as, the chance happening of fortunate or adverse events or fortune, good fortune or prosperity equals success and ones personal fate or lot. The different approaches towards the concept of luck and the impact it has on ones life are varied and can range from the rationalist claim, on one hand, which rejects any belief that cannot be supported by science, to the mystic approach, on the other hand, that uses certain rituals to avoid bad luck and to invite good fortune.

Some online bingo players believe that if they specifically ask for a ball the caller will give it to them. Of course the question lingers in the back of your mind. Does luck really work and is there any proof? Some say that it defies reason and logic, but bingo players who have lucky charms, superstitions and rituals really do win some of the time.

We live in a world where everyone tries to make or control their own luck in some way. Bingo is a game where you cannot control the outcome, or can you? Most bingo players believe you can and do have a measure of control.
Rituals play a very important role in bingo luck. Some players believe in walking three times around their chair before sitting down to play bingo. Others follow the same routine before they play to keep their luck going strong.

Then there are superstitions like lucky clothes, such as pyjamas, or special underwear. Some have lucky days and times when they play. Your player name or nickname is also important. Others believe that they can only win when certain friends are in the room. Most players believe that the number 13 is unlucky, and therefore find it a bad omen when a game starts with the number 13. Number 7, on the other hand, is one of the favourite lucky numbers.

The most important part of being lucky at bingo is of course lucky charms. Some players have pictures of their loved ones or pets next to their computers. Lucky charms can be anything from a rabbit's foot, too elephants, teddy bears, dolls, monkeys and gemstones.
