Top 7 Popular Lucky Charms for Gamers

Throughout history, no matter the sport, game or event, somewhere among the spectators, and participants as well, numerous lucky charms, such as; zodiac symbols, animal parts and even animals themselves, have been pocketed, worn, rubbed and petted in an attempt to drawn upon the spiritual realm, in hopes of swaying the outcome in their favor.

An individual’s lucky charm, or good luck piece in critical in their belief that just by merely having it on their person, or touching it prior, or throughout the event, will bring good luck, fortune or victory. It is serious business to those who believe, and according to a recent study conducted by a British University, over 30 percent of those who have charms, talismans and amulets, truly feel as though their life, along with their luck has significantly improved as a result.

These luck granting items can be of various shapes, sizes, colors and origins. In fact, even coffin nails are considered by some to be a good luck charm. Some individuals may have a certain article of clothing, such as a shirt, hat or even underwear that they feel as though bestows fortune, luck and good will upon them. Others might choose a piece of jewelry, or trinket to wear around their neck, wrist or ankle.

Still, items that derive from animals, such as the faithful old rabbit’s foot, have long been synonymous with luck and good fortune. However, the true meaning behind the foot relates more to the fortune of one’s ability to sire, or bear a child, than to hitting triple sevens on an online slots game.
Nevertheless, it remains as one of the top 7 popular gamer’s lucky charms.

Another animal item has been seen by many gamers in Africa as a must have, prior to wagering on any event, or online casino game; the alligator tooth. So just what are the best items to have if trying your luck at winning big during an online game, or sporting event? Below is a list of items that might be found on a gamer that is drawing spiritual energy, or simply the power of suggestion, while playing their favorite casino game.

1. Lucky Coin:

Coins, ironically enough, go hand and hand with money. A coin that was found in a special place, was inherited within the family or belonged to someone close to the holder, has great sentimental value but also might hold significant positive energy for the person now owning it.

2. Clothing:

For ages now, people have always had their favorite among their clothing. It might be a shirt they wore during a job interview, the day they were wed or even when their favorite sports team won the championship. Typically one is heard referring to their “lucky hat” or “lucky shirt”, and it is a sure bet (no pun intended) that if something of great importance, luck or fortune occurred while wearing that article of clothing, it will forever be considered as their lucky charm.

3. Amulets/Charms:

Often times it will be women gamers who hold a bracelet adorned with charms, a pendant or broach as their good luck item. Two of the more popular good luck charms for ladies are the butterfly, or the ladybug. Yet there are quite a few men whose shamrock cufflinks, or even those coffin nails stuck in their collar, seem to provide enough positive energy to propel them toward fortunes untold.

4. Pets:

This seems to coincide with many of the online gamers, who sit at home and play casino games on their computer. As with the article of clothing, if the gamer happens to hit it big at slots, just as their beloved cat decides to lie down upon the keyboard: You can rest assured that the cat might now be considered a lucky charm, and the computer area is now his/her napping location anytime the owner is on a hot streak!

5. Horseshoe:

Now this popular gamer’s lucky charm needs no introduction. Anyone old enough to watch cartoons knows that a horseshoe is a luck garnering item, worthy of holding onto in a clutch.

Who truly knows where the luck of the Irish really comes from? Whether it be their pot of gold, or the four leaf clover, but there isn’t a more important item, or more popular lucky charm to be had, than the original lucky charm itself: The Shamrock.

    Fenr09 – Luck comes from within. Odds are to be beaten or can the odds be beaten…….. The question lingers through one’s mind! You take a financial risk gambling, so no matter how the game is played…….. Its either your day of goodluck or your day of bad. No one can really be sure if they have luck unless they give oneself the motivational speach of having goodluck based on how they feel lucky! lucky is a feeling; Having a good feeling = good luck is bestowed // Having a bad feeling = bad luck is bestowed
