Need a bit more luck in the bingo rooms? Check out our list of lucky items…
Don’t worry, we’re not going to make you do the cinnamon challenge! Apparently, just keeping a stick of cinnamon in your purse or wallet can bring you a steady income. Money has never smelt so delicious!
We don’t mean a sprinkling of spice, all things nice, etc. We mean a whole hollowed out nutmeg, filled with quicksilver (liquid elemental mercury). This charm was used back in the day to attract good luck in all matters related to money. We have since discovered that mercury can be pretty poisonous, so please just stick to a whole, unfilled nutmeg, okay?
Magic squares date all the way back to when we were first discovering our numbers. It consists of a grid of digits that add up to the same total whether counted vertically, horizontally or diagonally. We know what you’re thinking – no we don’t mean a Sudoku game! Supposedly, holding the magic square while you play can bring forth the cards you need. Be careful, that dealers don’t think you’ve got some kind of cheat sheet, though!
We’re getting a bit pagan with this next charm. Wearing the tooth of a badger on the left side of your body (the side of your heart) brings good luck. The same thing is said about alligator teeth in Africa. We know it’s weird, but just be glad you’re trying to win money and not trying to get pregnant, otherwise we would recommend a raccoon penis bone. Yes, we said penis bone; otherwise known as a baculum, they bring good luck in fertility.
Ever thought about trying out feng shui? Here’s your chance. Chinese coins in feng shui are used as a protection and good luck cure. For this reason, they’ve been incorporated not only into ornaments for Chinese homes, but into a lot of jewellery designs as well, particularly necklaces and pendants.
Creepy crawlies aren’t all bad. You see, spiders are actually supposed to signify good luck in ‘matters of trade.’ In fact, one type of spider is known as the ‘Money Spider’ to most of Britain, recognisable by its small size of just 2mm. Popular superstitions associate these spiders with wealth so much that a lot of people are reluctant to kill them.
Do we have any ginger haired readers at the moment? If so, you’ll be proud to learn that rubbing the head of a person with red hair is said to be good luck. Unfortunately, redheads themselves are also said to be terrible luck on certain specific occasions, especially according to the proverb “meet[ing] a redhead on the first morning in May.”
A money plant is kept indoors and is supposed to bring wealth to your house, hence the name – quite obvious really. Check for an itchy palm after you set it up; that’s the sign that money is almost within your reach.
A lot of psychic practitioners believe crystals have energy that can influence the flow of your life, including situations related to money. Good crystals for a gambler’s wealth include aventurine, the stone of chance and luck. Also, keep handy a bit of Tiger’s Eye, the stone of financial prosperity and protection.
By far the ultimate gambling companion; this amulet is a gold-plated, double-sided charm for money drawing, luck in gambling and winning at games of chance. Check out this review:
“The Gambler’s Amulet has come through for me at bingo and in a sweepstakes drawing, but I thought what the heck and slipped it into my pocket when I went out on my first date with Edna, a fabulous woman I had met the week before. I believe it gave me the confidence and a winning aura to completely dazzle her.”
