Whether in the African society or not, punters have different superstitious beliefs when it comes to betting. This has opened Pandora’s box as to whether betting is all about luck or research and strategy.
Punters all around the globe have individual beliefs that in order to win be it in the Lottery or Online Sports Betting, they believe certain things must happen first or before, and funny or not even professional athletes themselves also have their fair share of these beliefs.
There are punters who strongly believe in dreams that certain things or objects in their dreams represent Lottery numbers. During my last visit to the Sports Café with a friend, he told me that he only uses one of the betting screens because he believes you don’t win with the others, ‘you won’t win’ as he put it.
On the other hand there are some who believe in regalia that if you go and bet wearing a certain shirt or something of a lucky charm of some sort it will bring you luck and you will win and that without it you are doomed.
On a rather fun fact there are some professional athletes who also believe that without certain regalia they don’t play the same. This superstition is very common with NFL Athletes, its either it’s an old sock or arm band but most of our superstars have lucky charms they cannot play without.
