GAMBLER'S LUCK

lucky-dice

Gamblers -- whether they play at cards, bingo, horse racing, policy, the lottery, or other "numbers" games -- tend to want a winning edge. For this reason they often enhance their personal power through the use of amulets, charms, and ritual spells to bring favour to their enterprises. This page is a shortcut providing links to all of the Lucky W Amulet Archive gambling amulets -- plus complete instructions for some simple, folkloric gambling spells (marked with a *) drawn from "Hoodoo in Theory and Practice," my online book-in-progress about African-American folk-magic. I also maintain a web page cataloguing money-drawing spells for those interested in that subject.

On this page you will find links to many gambling spells, good luck charms, lucky mojo bags, and other curios employed by those who play games of chance:

GAMBLERS' LUCKY CHARMS AND SPELLS

lucky-mojo-brand-lottery-candle The following lucky gambling charms, amulets, curios, and talismans are collected and displayed as part of the Lucky W Amulet Archive with full descriptions and instructions for use.

Not every item shows at the Lucky W Amulet Archive is for sale, for many of them are actually museum pieces demonstrating the rich history of lucky charms and talismans from ancient times to the present, but we stock as many of them as possible at the Lucky Mojo Curio Company Occult Shop -- both root and herb curios and man-made artifacts employed by those who want that "winning edge." You will find ordering links on each page that showcases something we stock, or you may look for items by name at the Lucky Mojo Curio Company Complete Inventory Page.

GAMBLERS' LUCKY DREAM BOOKS
FOR CATCHING NUMBERS TO BET AND PLAY

the-true-fortune-teller-book Dream books specifically designed for lottery play may provide interpretations of dreams (dream divination), but they also have something that other dream books do not have -- lucky numbers for you to bet on, depending on what your dreams reveal. Lucky dream numbers are often believed to be the best numbers not only for betting, but also to use as telling "signs" of the kind of luck you will have on certain days, at certain addresses, and in dealing with certain people.

These are some of the best and most often requested dream books utilized by folks who combine gambling play with signs and significations from hoodoo, conjuration, and rootwork. We offer all of these books for sale at our Lucky Mojo Divination and Dream Book sales page, for which the link is found below.

GAMBLERS' LUCKY RUN-DOWN AND WORK-OUT
NUMBER SYSTEM BETTING BOOKS

billy-bings-red-book For those who play the numbers regularly, steadily, and often, the numbers themselves begin to aquire symbolism, not merely in terms of dreams, but in terms of odds-busting "runs" or "patterns," whereby old winning numbers can be used to derive new numbers thought to be on the verge of catching. There are many systems of derivatives, including run-downs, work-outs, "relative" nubers, and "following" numbers.

The books in this list include the most famous and popular of the many run-down and work-out systems that have been developed by students of numberology and gambling.

GAMBLING HANDS AND LUCKY MOJO BAGS

Perhaps the most famous, and the best, of gambling charms is the mojo, which Robert Johnson mentions in his famous blues song, "Little Queen of Spades," recorded in 1937:

robert-johnson
LITTLE QUEEN OF SPADES
by Robert Johnson

Now, she is a little queen of spades
          and the men will not let her be
Mmm mmm mmm, she is the little queen of spades
          and the men will not let her be
Everytime she makes a spread
          hoo, fair brown, cold chill just runs all over me

I'm gon' get me a gamblin' woman
          if the last thing that I do
Eee hee ee, gon' get me a gamblin' woman
          if it's the last thing that I do
Well, a man don't need a woman
          hoo, fair brown, that he got to give all his money to

Everybody say she got a mojo
          now, she's been usin' that stuff
Mmm mmm mmm, 'verybody says she got a mojo
          'cause she been usin' that stuff
But she got a way trimmin' down
          hoo, fair brown, and I mean it's most too tough

Now little girl, since I am the King
          baby, and you is a queen
Ooo hoo eee, since I am the King
          baby, and you is a queen
Le's us put our heads together
          hoo, fair brown, then we can make our money green

Johnson's "gamblin' woman" uses a mojo to bring in the winnings, but she also "trims" or marks her card deck, so that she can cheat a little, too. Because she is a card sharp, it is very likely that her particular mojo bag contains lucky hand root and five-finger grass, both of which are reputed to "aid in all the work that five fingers can do." Many people like to carry a mojo hand or conjure bag with them to the casino, for they feel that this will increase their luck. The most popular mojo hands for gambling have names such as these:

All of these mojo hands are filled with various roots, herbs, and minerals that are reputed to be lucky in drawing money and bringing in the winnings -- such as John the Conqueror root, Lodestone, Magnetic Sand, Rabbit Foot, Cinnamon chips, Five Finger Grass, Lucky Hand root, and so forth. The bags come supplied with a dram vial of the named oil and instructions for personalization and use. Old-timers may also dress the bags with whisky or with the urine of their sexual partner.

BATHS AND HAND WASHES FOR GAMBLING LUCK

lucky-mojo-gamblers-gold-herbal-hand-wash I know many people who like to prepare for casino gambling by washing their hands with a lucky herbal hand wash One of the nest of these is Gambler's Gold Lucky Seven Hand Wash, a special blend of seven herbs reputed to bring luck. You brew it up as a tea, then strain off the liquid, and wash your hands in it before going to play. The herbs included in this mixture are Chamomile, Calendula, Coriopsis, Alfalfa, Irish Moss, Cinnamon Chips, and Allspice Berries -- all of which are said to bring monetary good fortune or at least to drive away poverty.

One old-time rootwork practitioner who gave an interview to Harry M. Hyatt on May 26, 1938, in Memphis, Tennessee, told him a quick and simple way to bathe before going out to play cards at night: Dissolve saltpeter, sugar, bluestone (we'd use blueing balls now), and your own urine into the bathwater, then bathe downward and say the Lord's Prayer three times to cleanse yourself. Follow this by lightly dressing your playing cards with "any kind of oil that you believe in" to draw good luck; when asked which oil was best, the informant specified Rose Oil. (Hyatt entry 1719 cylinder 1542:12)

CONJURE OILS FOR GAMBLING LUCK

lucky-mojo-lady-luck-conjure-oils If carrying a mojo hand or brewing up a herbal hand wash is too much trouble for you, you can always rub a specially prepared dressing oil pn your hands before you go to play. The oil can also be used to dress your coins and chips, or even to anoint your money before you use it to buy lottery tickets.

Among the best these conjure dressing oils for gambling are:

MISS ROBIN'S LUCKY GAMBLING SPELL

Robin-York-Wins-At-Bingo [The following was written by -- and is copyright by -- Robin Shepherd York, and is used with permission of the author.]

Sunday, March 13, 2005

Hello,

I would like tell you about the gambling spell i use when i go to bingo. It has worked every time now. This does not mean you will get rich, but it does make your pocket feel good.

It takes a little preparation:

The night before, take a bath in Pay Me bath crystals by Lucky Mojo. Air dry, don't towel dry yourself. Take a small bucket or a mug-size cup of your used bath water outdoors and throw it over your left shoulder to the West and don't look back.

Take all the money that you're going to play with and write, "Money, return to me" (or "RTM" for "Return to Me") and put your name (or your initials) on each bill of the money, then anoint each bill with three hoodoo oils: Lady Luck, Pay Me, and Alleged Money Drawing oil. Finally, dust Pay Me powder on all the money.

Use two vigil candles: Lady Luck and Lucky 13 candle. Put a little bath crystals in both candles. Put the prepared money under both candles, then light the candles and say, "Let this money bring me more money."

When you are done, put some Pay Me powder on your chest or bosom and go to sleep that way.

Let the money stay under the candles until it's time to go to play, then take it out -- and Good Luck to you.

This has worked for me five out of six times and the one time it didn't work it was because I did not do the work fully and I lost big time.

I went to bingo Saturday, March 12, 2005 and I won $575.00. This picture shows what it is like when it works really well: last week, March 5, 2005, i won $1300.00 and a DVD home theater, plus lots more money.

Robin
