Speak to any random person on the street and ask them to choose a number between 1 and 10. The likelihood is that you will be told 7 as a response. Why? Because 7 is a lucky number across the world. At Viage above all it means: party!
There are 7 days in a week. There are 7 wonders of the world and 7 seas. A rainbow is made up of 7 colours. And you can find 7 tones on most scales. We could go on: Snow White had 7 dwarves and Tom Thumb walked in 7 league boots. An admit it: 007 is a better codename for James Bond than 006.
A survey of over 30,000 people clearly shows: 7 is our favourite, our lucky number. The reason? Because it is an outlier. Time for a little maths.
Count from 1 to 10
As a little sprout we learn to count from 1 to 10. These are our first steps in mathematics and for that reason those numbers remain most important to us. You can do all kinds of things with those first numbers:
- 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 you double.
- 6, 8 and 10 you divide by two.
- 9 you divide by three.
- 7 stands alone.
7 is a unique number in the list from 1 to 10. It is a strange chap who always stands alone and who we cherish. In addition, 7 is an uneven number. That gives the impression that something else might happen. For instance, a party at Viage! Or the 7770 euro of prizes that are soon to be won.
7 at the gaming tables
At the gaming tables 7 is also a magic number. In blackjack you almost always win if you pull 7 three times. In roulette, 7 is a lucky number. And its top prize when a slot machine ends on 777.
Party at Viage
At Viage you do not need a lucky number for a successful evening. Because on 22 April we celebrate our 7th birthday. And then there will be prizes worth 7777 euro to be won. You don’t want to miss that. So put 22 April in your diary now!
PS: Did you know that 8 is also a lucky number in China? We will keep that story for our next birthday.
