Yes i already know that i need a tin foil hat to visit this forum sometimes (sorry, not sorry). But what are some of the craziest superstitions you've witnessed people say, or might even believed in?

Dealing craps at my old casino in Missouri, the A/C is pretty loud and it happened to be near the craps table. You can hear it every time it kicks on...one of our regulars truly believed that the casino kicks the A/C on every time a good roll is about to happen, as to circulate air through the table to cause 7 outs...So he had his bets off or no action until it turned off.

When I was playing a lot of Fortune PGP at Hilton LV, people believed that if you were on an extended losing streak, you could turn it around by walking around your chair 3 times clockwise, clucking like a chicken and making wing movements with your thumbs tucked into your armpits.

Saw it done at least 1/2 dozen times. Sometimes people laughed embarrassed as they did it, but they did it.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I've seen people refuse color ups because "Black/Green Chips are Bad Luck!"

So they would demand to be paid in either ALL red chips or ALL Greens and would have upwards of $5000 in those chips in front of them. One man even denied coloring up over $2000 in Red Chips when he was done playing, put all the chips into a giant plastic bag and said "I'll come back in a few months when I feel lucky again!"

Really really happened.

They had PGP tournamentso 2x a year there. You had to be playing the Fortune bet for $5 and get at least a FH to qualify. Then you filled out an entry form, they certified you had the qualifier, and you would get RFB comped along with the entry fee for the weekend. Think I went to maybe 6 over 4-5 years, late '90s to early '00s.

It tended to be a lot of the same people. They were the ones who spread this superstition. And I never saw it anywhere besides HLV.
