Hey, Do Tell - What's So Darn Lucky About The Lottery Number 7?

The number 7 was coming up for some lucky winner in the June Irish Lottery. PHOTO

If you're the kind of person who thinks that one number is luckier than another, please don't read any further.

Because I'm telling you there's no such thing. It's a fact.

But many folk think there are lucky numbers. I've just read a newsletter which said that July is going to be your greatest month ever - because it contains the number 7.

It said that anything containing this number is sure to bring you good luck.

  • Perhaps the writer is basing it on the fact that Seven Lucky Gods exist in Japanese mythology.
  • Or the number of points on a sheriff's star.
  • In casinos, the line 7-7-7 (triple seven, not seven hundred seventy-seven) is a common winning line on slot machines.
  • Or the fact when most people are asked to choose a number between 1 and 10, the most common number chosen appears to be 7. When I was a child magician, I used this little-known fact very successfully in my performances. (Of course, when you're age 7, everything was magical back then).

Lucky talismans, colors, numbers, horoscopes or events are pure mythology. Usually they have coincided with a period of great significance, and so they appear bigger than they really are.

Red is a lucky color for many Chinese.

You're going to waste an awful lot of time and money chasing these dreams of luck.

So my advice to you is this...

Base your thinking on something more substantial. The Silver Lotto System doesn't have any form of lucky number built in - just in case you were unsure!

Phil here had some good luck too, but the number 7 was nowhere to be seen in his figuring out:
