By contrast, 87 per cent of those questioned in the survey by online casino roxypalace.com said they did not consider a rabbit's foot to be a lucky charm and 62 per attached no significance to horseshoes.

But 86 per cent still believe it is unlucky to break a mirror and 59 per cent of those questioned said they would refuse to walk under a ladder.

"We are still very superstitious. We still consider certain practices and objects as lucky," the Daily Express quoted a Roxypalace spokesman as saying.

"What surprised us was how prevalent traditionally unlucky practices were in modern Britain.

"As a nation we seem to be more concerned about preventing bad luck as bringing good luck," he added.
