Does luck exist? Can trinkets or magical items change the outcome of of events? Of course not, no, but it is worth a HIGHLY SCIENTIFIC investigation by myself on behalf of www.Ladbrokes.com
Unfortunately I can't get my head around poker, but I spied Roulette & reckoned I could manage 'red or black' easily enough.
First up was the lucky golden cat. Will kissing his shiny brow bring me a winning bet? I put a bet on red and won.
Conclusion: lucky cats DEFINITELY work. I didn't repeat the experiment but obviously this ground-breaking scientific result will be the subject of papers for years to come.
NEXT! Little teeny, tiny horseshoe necklace.
I placed my bet, spun again & lost.
Conclusion: although lucky, this horseshoe was freakishly small, so didn't contain the full strength of magical powers. Obviously.
The next lucky item was a box of Lucky Charms. You know I love my imported American food, so this was my favourite item in Ladbrokes' box of tricks.
My luck was out though. Because the goodies arrived last week, it seems a certain five year old has eaten all my Lucky Charms. Maybe rubbing his belly would bring luck, but he's at school, so I held the enchanted cardboard box & placed my bets.
I won again this time.
Conclusion: no idea. Cardboard boxes are lucky?
Last spin, and it's the turn of the lucky four leaf clover. Although not planted or grown, the seeds must be lucky too, right?
Conclusion: nope, the seeds aren't lucky. Unless maybe you combine holding the seeds with stroking a Leprechaun's beard at the same time to condense the luck.
Do lucky charms work? Not in my eyes.
Does my son like Lucky Charms cereal? Too much.
Do I have a career as a professional gambler? No.
Maybe if I'd had a lucky rabbit's foot.....
