There’s an old Yiddish proverb that says, “Better an ounce of luck than a pound of gold.” And while the price of gold may have gone up since that proverb was first uttered, it’s still true, and especially so in Las Vegas.

When luck’s on your side in a Vegas casino, the sky’s the limit. When luck smiles upon you, fortunes can be won with a roll of the dice or a spin of the roulette wheel.

It’s not surprising, then, Vegas visitors have always sought out ways to win Lady Luck’s favor, including visiting sites at Caesars Palace known for their mojo-enhancing qualities. Here are the top five luckiest sites at this iconic Strip hotel.

Caesar Augustus Statue

This statue, at the entrance to the Caesars Palace casino, has to be one of the most-photographed statues in the world, and rubbing his finger is said to bring good luck.

Just go with it. It's Las Vegas.

Cleopatra’s Barge

It’s perhaps the most hallowed of Vegas rituals, what’s referred to, in purely clinical terms, as the “touching of Cleopatra’s bosoms.” It’s been said Cleopatra’s ample frontage is some of the most-often-painted real estate in all the city. Cleopatra’s Barge, currently the home of singer Matt Goss, is located across from Hyakumi restaurant.


When it comes to good luck, asp and ye shall receive.

Joe Louis Statue

This statue, outside celebrity Chef Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill restaurant and across from the casino’s Race & Sports Book, is a monument to a sports great. Touching the champ’s glove has long been rumored to bestow good luck.

Can you feel the glove tonight? Yeah, we said it.

Brahma Shrine

It’s the spot that requires the most reverence, but it’s lucky nonetheless. The Brahma Shrine, near Serendipity 3 restaurant, is the only one of its kind in the Western world, a replica of one of Thailand’s most popular Buddhist shrines. Say a prayer at the shrine, and good fortune lies ahead.


You can't miss it.

David Statue

The David statue, in the hotel’s Appian Way Shops, boasts a larger-than-life toe, and touching it has been a long-standing practice by those seeking an edge in the casino.

A winning streak is afoot!
