Gambling on Friday the 13th
Are you less lucky when you play a game of blackjack or a round of roulette on that day?
Yoju Casino is clear: your odds of winning at the casino are the same on any day. So it makes no difference whether you play on Friday the 13th or Monday the 20th.
A few years ago, Holland Casino researched guests’ behavior on these unlucky days. And what did it reveal? Holland Casino welcomes as many visitors on Friday the 13th as on other days.
Don’t gamblers care about Friday the 13th at all?
Yes, they do! Because although Holland Casino welcomes the same number of guests on that day, those guests wager 5% less on that day!
Furthermore, it turns out that the regulars of the state-owned casino stay home a little more often on Friday the 13th. At the same time, Holland Casino welcomes relatively more people who hardly ever visit.
So, regular casino players seem slightly more superstitious than the average Dutchman.
So there is a chance that Holland Casino Online will also be quieter today than on a typical day.
But unfortunately, the unlucky number 13 is a severe phenomenon.
So what is the background to Friday the 13th?
Thirteen is, in any case, a generally accepted unlucky number. Just look at it:
- There is no operating room in the world in a hospital with the number 13.
- Many hotels – especially those in Las Vegas and Macau – skip floor 13. So do many skyscrapers.
- Many hotels skip room number 13.
- In professional football, shirt number 13 is almost non-existent.
- In Formula 1, no one drives a car with the number 13.
- Instead, look for row 13 in a KLM plane.
In the Tour de France, shirt number 13 is an absolute disaster, writes former cyclist Thijs Zonneveld in his book De Rode Vod (The Red rag):
No rider wants to ride with it. 13 is scary. And 13 is cursed. You lie in every crash, have a flat tire, and miss the decisive battle.
And if you do win with it, you will see that you are kissed on the podium by the very round maid with a brush mustache on her upper lip.
Most cyclists try to ward off the curse by sticking the number 13 upside down on their backs.
So why is thirteen an unlucky number?
Good question. And it remains a good question because there is no honest conclusive answer.
Most scientists think thirteen has become an unlucky number because of the Last Supper. There were 13 people present, and the 13th, Judas, betrayed Jesus.
The fact that ’13’ is considered an unlucky number would have a Christian background.
There is, however, another explanation for the lousy image attached to ‘thirteen.’
In many cultures, twelve is traditionally seen as a ‘perfect’ and sometimes even as a holy number.
Is that why there are twelve constellations, twelve months in a year, and twelve hours on the clock?
13 is one too many and, therefore, an evil luck charm.
But why is Friday the 13th of all days unlucky?
Why is Friday, the 13th of all days, known as an unlucky day? Let us go back to Jesus. He was crucified on (Good) Friday after he had enjoyed his last supper (13 people) a few days earlier.
13 and Friday, there you have it.
Besides: theologians think that the serpent tempted Eve on a Friday.
But there are also non-Christian roots for the superstition of Friday the 13th as a black lousy luck day. For example, there is an old Norse saga in which the god of fire, Loki, appears on a Friday as the 13th guest at a feast. Afterward, he sets everything on fire. You may know Loki from the online slot Hall of Gods.
In the Middle Ages, there was a widespread superstition that witches – with their black cats – would gather on Friday the 13th.
Finally, on Friday, 13 October 1307, in France, almost all members of the powerful knightly order of the Knights Templar were arrested. Since then, a dark image of Friday the 13th is said to have stuck.
Do more accidents happen on Friday the 13th?
OK, Friday the 13th is superstition. But could it be a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy? That we think we have more accidents and therefore make more mistakes or behave more awkwardly?
No, it is not.
Fewer accidents happen on Friday the 13th than on any other Friday!
A study by the Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) shows that some 7800 major and minor accidents happen on an average Friday worldwide. However, on Friday the 13th, the average number is only 7500…
How is that possible?
Probably because many people are just a little more careful than usual on such a supposedly unlucky day, and that conclusion is precisely in line with the research on gamblers in Holland Casino on Friday the 13th.
