The popularity of the game of bingo has been growing increasingly since its earliest history. Millions of pounds and dollars are made annually in towns across the USA and Europe / Britain that have bingo halls. And in recent times, online bingo has taken the Internet by storm. Thousands – even millions can be won with each click and there are numerous fun bingo sites from which to choose.
Bingo, like all gambling related activities, is a game of chance. It stands to reason that many of the people who play bingo regularly believe quite passionately in luck, and since the earliest days of bingo, players have come to rely of lucky charms which they hope will bring them the best possible luck when playing.
The fact that people use lucky charms may seem silly to some, but because players are often intensely involved in the entire bingo experience, many of them would strongly disagree. There are numerous websites developed to help bingo players with their game. In the same way as gamblers blow on the dice, so bingo players hold onto their lucky charms. Many players claim that they never win unless they have their lucky charms with them or go through their personal little bingo ‘rituals’.
According to research undertaken over the past few years, almost half of regular bingo players have some sort of special or lucky charm, symbol or ritual that they incorporate into every bingo game. This applies for both on and offline bingo. Some of these rituals are very simple like making sure they sit at the same seat every evening. Another common ritual is using the same dauber at every bingo game. Some players have a favorite color that they believe brings them luck like blue or red.
Chances are, if you play on or offline bingo among a large group of people, you’ve noticed some interesting outfits being worn. Many people wear different ‘lucky’ clothes to bingo halls for luck. Some wear bobbles, trinkets or stripes.
Other times, you’ll see one or two bingo players surrounded by stuffed animals. These are their lucky charms. Many bingo players who have bingo lucky charms will tell you that teddy bears bring luck. The more you have, the luckier you’ll be when it comes to winning, they state.
Whether bingo charms work or not, they add to the whole experience, give other players something to talk about and compare with each other, and if they’re not harming anyone else, then why not enjoy the fun and color they bring to bingo!
