LONDON, May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In the run up to Friday 13th, online gaming company Virgin Games (http://www.virgingames.com), has analysed a 50,000 player sample of its database to find the luckiest and unluckiest star signs when it comes to winning money.
The data showed that Aquarius, closely followed by Capricorn are the luckiest star signs, while Libra is the unluckiest. Players were defined as 'lucky' by having a winning session of more than GBP1,000.
Expert Astrologer, Russell Grant, commented on the findings: "All signs have the potential for being lucky and as the planets are constantly moving, people will move in and out of lucky phases. That's why you should never give up if your sign falls at the bottom of the lucky/unlucky chart. For some months now Saturn has been traveling retrograde in Libra but the good news is, as from mid-June, Saturn turns direct and Librans could well start to see more good fortune in their life.
"Also in June, the lucky planet Jupiter will be entering Taurus. Taurus already seems to have had more than its fair share of luck lately and that's probably because this careful sign will have cleverly worked out gambling tactics that help them improve their gambling odds. It is interesting to see that all the more cautious Earth signs: Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo are in the top five lucky signs.
"What can the more impulsive Fire signs Leo, Aries and Sagittarius learn from this? Maybe to curb their impulsiveness, work out the odds, take calculated risks and pause and watch for the next good opportunity. However, don't hesitate for too long! Because Libra, the only Air sign at the bottom of the list has a tendency to vacillate and as the old saying goes: he who hesitates is lost. So as Librans pull themselves out of a more restrictive Saturn phase, they should take a leaf out of their Aquarian friends' books and let their motto be: He who dares, wins!"
Simon Burridge, CEO of Virgin Games, commented: "As Friday 13th hits us, we thought it would be a good idea to look at the fortune of our customers and to try and understand whether certain star signs are luckier than others. Of course, this is just a bit of fun, but I may steer clear from letting a Libran deal with my money on this inauspicious day!"
From luckiest to unluckiest, the findings of Virgin Games' data was as follows:
1. Aquarius 2. Capricorn 3. Taurus 4. Gemini 5. Virgo 6. Cancer 7. Leo 8. Aries 9. Pisces 10. Scorpio 11. Sagittarius 12. Libra
