The other day I was talking to a fellow gambler, and he swore that he’d heard that people win more in casinos when it’s near a full moon. It’s almost a full moon right now so I thought I’d better get to the bottom of this, in case I was missing out on a chance to win some extra moolah.

So I did what any respectable (?) blogger does when they hear something crazy. I looked it up on the internet, and found this article. It references a book called “The Conscious Universe” by Professor Dean Radin. Apparently Radin states that our psychic abilities are at their highest when the moon is full or near full, and we are therefore more successful when we play card games. Of course I haven’t read the book, nor do I know anything about this Professor Radin character.

Nevertheless, I’m going to choose to believe it’s all true. After all, as the article also states, we tend to do better when we’re confident. If we believe we’re going to win, evidence suggests that we actually do win more. So I’m going to go outside to look at the big moon, then play something in our online casino. And if I do win, I’m going to assume it’s because of the phase of the moon. If I happen to lose, I’ll choose to believe it’s because I’m not wearing my lucky boxer shorts (which are in my laundry hamper at the moment.) Feeling lucky? Then play online right now.
