How to Be Lucky When Gambling in a Casino, Poker Game, Lottery Or Horse Racing Using Proven Methods

Luck is the most important part of gambling, as anyone who has spent any time in a casino, at the race track betting on horse racing, playing the lottery, poker, blackjack or any game of chance can tell you. Some people seem to be luckier than others and demonstrate the truth behind the old saying, “I’d rather be lucky than good.” How true that is. Good luck will get you through almost anything and no matter how deep you may appear to be in the soup, you may come out smelling like a rose if you have good fortune.

Of course, most people believe that it is impossible to change destiny or fortune so it is impossible to control your luck, but that may not actually be the case. Science has demonstrated that there are times when people win more and lose less. In his book, “The Conscious Universe,” Professor Dean Radin analyzed the results of four years of data from casinos. He was looking for a correlation between the phases of the moon, strength of the Earth’s geomagnetic fields, and casino payout percentages. During the full moon the Earth’s geomagnetic field is usually at its weakest. Professor Radin believes there may be some connection between the Earth’s magnetic fields, the moon, human psychic ability, and gambling.

One scientific study that Prof. Radin mentions in his book did demonstrate that people seem to be more psychic during the full moon, then their abilities seem to wane during the quarter moons and increase again during the new moon. This fluctuation in psychic ability seems to also follow luck because four years of casino data showed that payouts increased at the time of the full moon and decreased at other times for most casino games studied. Perhaps our intuition or psychic ability really does help us to win, whether it is picking the slot machine that is about to pay out, or knowing whether to hit a 13 at the blackjack table, or which horse will win the race. Poker players can certainly use intuition to their benefit.

The conclusion he reached was that if gamblers avoided the casinos during the quarter moons and gambled around the time of the full moon, they would decrease their losses or even win a profit. Of course, these are just generalizations and should not be considered an inducement to gamble, but they show promise for really understanding how to be lucky.

Lotteries showed a different trend. It appears that Pick 3 style lotteries pay out more during the times of the quarter moons and lower payouts during the full moon. Fluctuations in the magnetic fields of the earth, once again, seemed to have an effect. While the phase of the moon or strength of the earth’s fields will not guarantee you a winner, it may be a good idea to start making your winning and losing days on a calendar and watch where they fall according to the moon’s phases.

Other studies have shown that when people have a positive attitude and expect to win, they actually do win more often. That makes sense, doesn’t it? If you expect to win you may make choices that will have a positive effect. For instance, if you are in a casino and looking for a blackjack table and expect to lose, you won’t be too fussy about which table you sit at. But if you expect to win you may take more time selecting the table and finding one where the gamblers seem to be happier and smiling, meaning they are winning and the table is paying out better. You may not do it consciously, but you could do this and other things subconsciously just because you have a winning attitude and expect to win. We make a lot of choices when gambling whether we are at the race track betting on horse racing or choosing a place or game in a casino or even selecting lottery numbers.

So my advice to you is that you keep track of your winning and losing days and the phases of the moon. Also, keep a positive attitude. If you expect to win, perhaps it is a good day to take a chance, but if you expect to lose or just don’t feel lucky, maybe it would be better to save your money until you feel the earth’s fields, moon, or just plain old luck are working for you.

Betting on Horse Racing – Learning to Spot the Secret Signs to More Winners

There are many things to consider when betting on horse racing. Indeed so many that it can seem a daunting task with so many thousands of races throughout the year. There are key signs to look out for however if you want to consistently find more winners.

Nothing is set in stone and as with any form of gambling there are no guarantees. That said, if you learn to follow the advice below you are sure to start understanding when a bet on a certain horse may offer more value.

Given that one of the most difficult aspects of picking winners when betting on horse racing, is whether or not your selection is running to win on the day. You can often scratch your head in amazement in lower class races as horses that would seem to have less chance than others go in day after day!

What signs can you now look out for in order to back more winners?

Annual stable patterns

Firstly start to realise that sometimes results are not as random as they seem! Check the racing post to see which horse won the race last year and therefore which trainer. You will find many trainers targeting certain races throughout the year.

This may be because they have a good feel for the race and train one specifically for that event. Or that quite often certain stables start to perform at specific times of the year. This training ‘pattern’ is very worth keeping an eye out for. Nicky Henderson really starts to fire in November and early December, as Clive Britain tends to get his three year olds off to a flying start in April and Early May. These trends can change over time, but begin to understand that due to varying training methods and facilities, these patterns are not as random as you might first think!

Trainer Strike Rates

Making money long term betting on horse racing is about picking winners? To do that, if you consider that the more you focus on horses that cannot win a race the more likely you are to find a winner that can!

If you use this theory and start looking to find favourites that are short in price and can learn to get them beaten then you are on route to more betting success. So learning to use trainer strike rates when considering every bet is a shrewd and necessary method of form reading.

A 6/4 favourite that is being over hyped in the market from a yard that let’s say has a strike rate at this imaginary track today of zero winners from forty two attempts is most definitely worth taking on! One of the horses fancied with a bigger price from a yard with a twenty percent strike at the track is very likely to upset the favourite backers.

It is not your job as a punter betting on horse racing to work out why a trainer strikes well at a track. Just use the statistics to your advantage, as they do not lie! Let others follow in these false favourites and enjoy winning their money.

Betting on horse racing successfully is about thinking outside of the box, and where possible going against the common train of thought! Around 98% of punters lose, so the majority are not right most of the time! Really learn to use these tools above to start uncovering more winners at the races when betting on horse racing.
