Here's some unsubstantiated info on lucky/unlucky numbers in China, Korea and Japan. Interestingly, they don't even issue license plates with the number 4 on them in China to avoid complaints.
Asians are superstitious because they needed to have some type of reasoning for everything that had occurred in their lives. The government controlled them so much that they did not feel like that had any purpose or say in the future of their being. They had little hope to better themselves or further their careers. They believed that their destiny was predetermined. But thanks to the internet, knowledge of reality, and more global opportunity , Asians have hope for better lives. The worst thing that could have happened to the Chines government was the internet. Now the people know everything!

My mother was Chinese
She was not into gambling
Regarding luck, all she told me to do was eat noodles on my birthday. She said it will bring me good luck
That's it. She really wasn't superstitious.
I always have noodles on my birthday :-)
Earlier in this thread, I saw that white was considered unlucky
Because at weddings in Japan
The traditional bride will often use white makeup on their face
