A new lady at the table brings luck, a new man misfortune
If you have been playing craps for some time, you surely noticed that some players change the amount of their bets from time to time. Especially when a new person appears at the table. If a woman appears, some players will start betting more and less if it’s a man. Some players even avoid bets completely when a man appears.
The first player at the table is cursed
Many players are trying to find tables that already have at least one player. The reason is simple, they believe that the first player at the table is “cursed”, will be immensely unlucky for the whole game and can never win. He could get a so-called “cold dice” which means very unfortunate throws. Would you happen to believe this myth and fear that you’ll be punished by fate, let a rookie sit down first and then look as he loses, saying “I told you”.
Don’t speak the word “seven” after the Point is established
Once the shooter establishes the Point, it is very unfortunate to say the word “seven”. Just like theater actors don’t like hearing “good luck”, some players are sensitive to this word. If a player were to utter this number, a higher power will spite him and, of course, a seven will get rolled. That’s why saying the word “seven” is completely taboo.
Hitting a stranger’s hand by the dice also brings misfortune
Frankly, even if you were the most superstitious person in the world, you can be absolutely sure about one thing in an online game. You can’t run into this “misfortune”. It is really difficult to hit another player’s hand with a virtual dice. Anyway, if you ever get to play live craps, that’s not true anymore. From a certain point of view, this myth has at least some basis in reason. It’s at least possible for this to happen. That’s because the way how the dice stop is different to how they would stop without touching the hand. So even though this may be unlucky at times, another time it can save you. I hope you enjoyed this lighthearted article which looked at the world of casinos from a different angle. People always have been and will be superstitious and no one can prevent them from being such. In any case, I firmly hope that common sense will prevail over superstition and you will prefer to stick with the good strategy, no matter which game you play.
