Because of Chinese superstition, according to which 4 is considered the death figure, the Chinese refused to take in the casino a win of £ 4,444. Having won an unhappy sum at JackpotCity.com, from the point of view of Chinese numerology, Mr. X refused the prize. “This is the first time in the history of our casino, when a player refuses to win,” said Terri Maverick, an online casino representative. The JackpotCity.com administration suggested that Mr. X subtract from the £ 11 win and pay £ 4,433 to the player. In Chinese culture, the combination of fours and triples symbolizes an ideal balance of good and evil. According to the Chinese tradition, 4 is considered an unlucky number, since it is consonant with the pronunciation of the word “death”. Superstition of 4 is so widespread in China that in public institutions there are no 4 floors and floors with numbers ending in four.
