About This Quiz

The concept of luck is one that has fascinated people forever. Science will tell you there's no such thing but it also has to chalk all kinds of things up to random chance. Isn't that how luck works? It plays with random chance to make a lucky or an unlucky outcome for you. And it works, too! We all know someone who seems like they have four-leaf clovers and horseshoes up their butts. If they can get some lucky break they absolutely do. And then there are other people who seem to constantly be faced with the worst luck ever. Some stuff can be blamed on poor choices but some things really are just that random chance randomly choosing to do unlucky stuff over and over again. If it happens to you, you will never doubt that luck is a real thing.

If you're here reading this then you know luck is real. You don't need to be convinced about any science behind it so we're not going to waste your time. Instead, we just need you to answer a few questions so we can figure out just how lucky you are and actually put a number on it. So if you're feeling lucky, take the quiz!
