“Tailismania” : Scratch Card Luck

I know there are superstitions, but this one must take the cake.

A friend of mine who enjoys scratchcard games recently told me something odd.

She said when she plays scratch cards, she has a lucky coin, and when she plays online scratch cards, she has a lucky mouse.

A lucky. Mouse.

“What,” I couldn’t resist clarifying, “you mean – when you play online scratch cards, you unplug your normal mouse and plug in the lucky mouse?” She nodded. “Err, why don’t you just use the lucky mouse all the time?”

She looked at me as if I were daft. “Don’t be ridiculous,” she said. “It would run out the luck.”

Well, of course. Silly me.

Thing is, I’ve heard a lot about superstitions from all sectors of the industry – from mini mascots to which side of the slot machine you can stand on – but I always thought that scratch cards were relatively safe from the madness. And then my friend comes along with her lucky mouse and blows all my preconceptions out of the water. I reckon it’s about the best lucky charm story I’ve ever heard.
