Those special numbers!
Everyone has a number that means something special in their hearts. The number seven is a significant figure in many religions, universally known to attract fortune.

It will surely bring a positive vibe wherever you go - especially on your way to the lotto office…
If you find a penny as you are walking down the street, pick it up and you will have good luck all day – or so legend has it. There is another Chinese superstition that says if you happen to walk on a coin, at some point in your life, you will have financial success. In the Middle ages, people believed that metallic amulets offered protection against evil. This concept evolved and in modern time equates to keeping a penny in your pocket for prosperity.
Circles are the oldest of symbols, a sign of perfection and luck. This shape is significant in the lottery balls that keep bouncing and rolling to be randomly picked up in the lotto draw. The circular shape is a universal design found in many things like jewellery as in earrings to the wreaths hung at Christmas time.

The four-leaf clover is very rare to come across but if you find one it might well give you good prospects in future. The clover is a symbol of Celtic culture that protects you from evil. The four clover leaves represent fame, wealth, health and love as in the former Italian lottery logo, Superenalotto.
Lucky Bamboo is a long-lived plant that grows in Southeast Asia and Africa. Also known as the ‘Friendship bamboo’, the more stalks it has - the more luck it is supposed to bring you. If there are three stalks, it is said to bring a happy atmosphere and wealth.
Sometimes the lucky answer is in the sky; all you need to do is look up! Nature has a way of showing you the hopeful future. For all those looking for a fortune, at the end of the rainbow is a pot of gold, just ask a mischievous leprechaun for directions.
