There is an established level of superstition in China when it comes to numbers, in general, not to mention in gambling. Some numbers are good omens that can lead to the person making the most out of a situation. Many numbers are good luck, and many are bad luck, however in some situations the luck of a number depends mostly on the context in which is it placed.

This sort of tonal appreciation for words in the language is why certain numbers have a particular meaning that can vary from region to region. Here are some general examples of these numbers being used.
