On their last journey, they were travelling in the car and exchanging banter and a few jokes, but mainly talked about Mrs. Evan’s recent run of good luck. Then, low and behold, as they passed through Pontyates, a large, black cat marched across the road. Mr. Griffiths turned to his passenger, telling her, “that’s got to be lucky!” and the pair laughed.
A few hours later at the Llanelli bingo hall, luck was distinctly lacking for Mrs. Evans. Although she was certainly having a fun evening catching up with her friends, no wins were forthcoming. That was until she bought tickets for the Mega Link game which offers a full house prize of £1,000, when she started thinking back to the black cat they’d see on their earlier journey. Mr. Griffiths says the lady was only waiting for two numbers to complete her card; the first number came out straight away, followed by the remaining, final number a bit later, and rewarding her with the £1,000 prize.
Mr. Griffiths says he’s not naturally superstitious but admits he’s “certainly starting to change [his] mind.” He added that the whole evening was “an experience,” and that just when he thought he knew everything, he “ended p knowing nothing.”
Have any of our readers ever had a visit from Lady Luck, or a black cat, which you think led to a prosperous outcome? Do you have any lucky mascots which you take to your local bingo hall, or have at your side when you play online?
