If you’re a fan of kung pao chicken or chow mein you’ve no doubt opened a few fortune cookies in your time. And when the fortune includes lucky numbers, you might have wondered whether or not to do anything with those tempting little digits. Sure, you intellectually know they’re just random numbers. But what if they’re not? What if they actually are lucky?
Now, forget for the moment the fact that some guy who has access to a limitless supply of lucky numbers probably wouldn’t still be working in a fortune cookie factory. Let’s assume they really are lucky and you just want to find a good game to try them out. How should you play them? Well, the first answer that comes to mind is Roulette. And believe me, in the middle of a game of roulette I’ve come up with far stranger ways of trying to choose numbers than finding them in a fortune cookie – I’ve used everything from the dealer’s birth month to the number of times my cat has peed in the closet in the last month (five). So roulette’s a good bet, but not the good bet.
If you really want to put those numbers to the test, I recommend giving them a whirl on Keno. It’s easy to play, it involves randomly picking numbers and, most importantly, you can win ridiculous amounts of money playing it. And after all, if those numbers really did travel halfway around the world to make you luckier, you might as well play them on a game with a jackpot of up to $250,000 (that’s 25,000 orders of kung pao chicken). Play Keno right now.
