The  multi-billion-dollar  gaming industry is built upon the eternal quest for luck. Sometimes luck has nothing to do with it. In a positive light, planning creates a superior outcome. Determination and insistence, resolve to never give up can culminate in the desired result.  Great concepts and ideas,  innovation can shape predictable circumstance. Human genius can modify. Humans can  deviously manipulate outcomes that might be ordinarily left to luck. Electronic bandits in casinos are programmed to favour the house, a fact unknown to many customers.  The odds are weighted against their being successful.  Is  'winning' on a machine that has been programmed to steal from the player  'luck'?  No. Sadly,  It is a predictable outcome. The rich gaming industry thrives on it's manipulated, predictable outcome that has nothing to do with luck. Fortune can and does change upon occasion. At times for the better.  The wind changes direction.  Fortuitous, wonderful things can occur. Being in the right place at the right time. Stumbling across good fortune. Lady Luck is always dancing in the wings in your theatre of life.  Hope. DreamsSuspension of reality.  Wishful thinking.   A huge lottery coming up,  I'll get a ticket. I  may even win when I toss reality to the wind. That's why 'L' is for Luck.   Is that Incoming I hear? Photo Credit:  Valerie Imre  Wikipedia commons +
