Whether you're a pro at poker, a connoisseur at craps or a rookie at roulette, you can improve your odds of winning if you know which numbers are in your favor.
You may improve your luck quotient without studying heaps of "How To Win At..." books. The following simple system was used by the ancient Egyptians to prop up waning mental telepathy; and it doesn't take long to learn.
In these modern times, we can still use yesteryear's secrets to augment our gambling techniques. And for those games that don't require considerable skill to win, like the slot machines and Keno, maybe your lucky numbers will be just that for you -- lucky. The best part is that you don't have to be a computer wizard to figure it all out.
Once you know your birthday number, you'll never forget it because it is your number for life. And the benefits of a few minutes of math additions may get you to the pot of the gambling rainbow quicker than the other guy.
Here's How It Works
Add the month, day and year of your birthday together like this example: June 12, 1942.
1) June is the 6th month of the year.
2) Add compound numbers like the 12 day together (1+2) to get a single digit: 3.
3) Then add your year's numbers 1+9+4+2 = 16. Reduce the 16 (1+6) to get a single digit: 7.
4) Then add your month (6), day (3), year (7) subtotals. You'll get 16. Reduce again to a single digit (1+6) to get 7.
5) This person's Life path and Lucky Number is 7.
Always reduce to a single digit unless your compound number is an 11. You would then use the 11 instead of reducing to the 2.
How To Use Your Lucky Number
If you are a seven like the sample above, then go where the "seven" casinos are. Add their addresses to see what potential awaits you. 3921 Nobucks Street is a 6 place (3+9+2+1 = 15 = 6)
All that glitters here is gold only for the guy who is born under a 6. To make matters worse for a 7, that address doesn't even contain a seven. Keep searching until you find your lucky seven place. Add those addresses.
When you've found a "seven" brick and mortar casino or online casino, let your creativity have free reign. Go to tables numbered seven. Slot machines have numbers; it takes only a few seconds to add up those numbers. Remember to reduce to a single digit.
On Keno use multiples of seven; 49 is a good number for a 7 Life Path because it's seven times seven. If you can afford it, stay with your "seven" table or with your slot machine seven tries before you give up. You'll obviously be moving around more if you happen to be a two.
Use your lucky number for dates too. Can you think of a more auspicious time to have gambled than on July 7, 1991 at 7 a.m., if you're a seven?
Keep in mind that your number is good for you, better and luckier than any other digit could ever be over the long haul of a lifetime. That number has had an affinity with you from birth. Give it a chance to work for you. Have faith in its power. It's the easiest and most natural way to have luck on your side
