The biggest factor determining lottery success, apart from actually purchasing a ticket and playing, is luck! Are there certain objects, charms or symbols that one can use to increase luck? PlayHugeLottos.com will be taking a look at lucky things from around the world and today we start with the four leaf clover.
Is the force of luck something we can influence? Let’s take a closer look at one of the most common and widely spread good luck charms in the world – The four leaf clover.
"If a man walking in the fields finds any four-leaved grass, he shall in a small while after find some good thing.”
- John Melton, 1620
- A four leaf clover is actually an incredibly rare mutation of the Shamrock (a type of clover plant). 1 in 10,000 shamrocks are believed to have four leaves.
- Each leaf of the clover is believed to represent something: One leaf is for FAITH, the second for HOPE, the third for LOVE and the fourth for LUCK!
- A four leave clover is considered especially lucky if it is found accidentally.
- The four leaf clover is associated with Ireland and the Irish celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Perhaps giving rise to the saying “the luck of the Irish”.
- The Ancient Celtic people believed that the four leaf clover was a potent charm against evil spirits.
- Although four leaf clovers are a rarity, there are clovers that have been found with even more leaves. The record is a Fifty-Six leaf clover which was found in Japan, 2009.
- There are farms in the USA that specialise in farming four leaf clovers, producing thousands a day which are sealed in plastic and used in lucky charms. (Personally we think this is cheating!)
- 2 of the lotteries offered on PlayHugeLottos.com have a four leaf clover in their logo: the Italian SuperEnaLotto and the Brazilian Mega-Sena.
With odds of finding a four leaf clover sitting at 1 in 10,000 it might be considered incredibly lucky to find one in the first place!
In fact, the four leaf clover is so lucky because it’s so rare to find one!
