    Friday the 13th (cue the evil music and lightning sounds). This date has been scaring people around the world for years… there was even a movie and television show devoted to the infamous number! Some choose to avoid the day altogether by not even leaving their homes. But seriously people, let’s turn this day of fright into a welcome sight! Here at Lady Luck Casino® Black Hawk, we’ve decided to flip the script on Friday the 13th. Yep, that’s right! We’re making a conscious decision to make Friday the 13th the luckiest day of the year!

    Where It All Began

    It’s a little unclear where this fear surrounding Friday the 13th began. While there isn’t any written proof of the superstition before the 19th century, the number 13 started earning its bad rap as far back as 1700 B.C. The number 13 was omitted from the ancient Babylon’s Code of Hammurabi around 1772 B.C. Fast forward hundreds of years later, author Nathaniel Lachenmeyer suggests the popularity of the Friday the 13th fear, stemmed from the novel, "Friday, the Thirteenth," by Thomas W. Lawson. The novel chronicles how a stockbroker took advantage of superstition by creating a Wall Street panic on Friday the 13th.
