It’s Friday the 13th and you’re in Las Vegas. Will you hide under the covers watching horror flicks or brush aside superstition and hit the tables? Superstitions are part of the Vegas experience for many visitors but we say use this notorious day to find your new lucky spot.

When it comes to Vegas superstitions, gamblers often lead the way. Whether it’s being loyal to their favorite number slot machine, sporting the same jacket or carrying a good luck charm, Las Vegas casino players stick to their lucky traditions.

Triskaidekaphobia, or fear of the number 13, may even strike non-superstitious folks on Friday the 13th. Relax; many Vegas casinos don’t even have a 13th floor. Some also avoid a 4th floor, believed to be unlucky in Chinese culture. This Friday the 13th, turn the tables on superstition and make it your lucky day with these tips.

It’s Friday the 13th and instead of being superstitious, we say celebrate it. The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino is throwing a Halfway to Halloween pool party with a costume contest, food and drink specials and live music.

Test your luck at Beer Pong at O'Sheas Casino

Those who say beer pong is solely a game of skill probably just downed a few beers on the losing end of a match. Head to the Irish-themed O’Sheas at The LINQ Promenade to test your beer pong “skills” and get a little luck on your side with the four leaf clover-heavy decor. Make your way from the beer pong tables to the gaming tables also inside the venue to ride your lucky streak.
