MANILA, Nov. 11 – Filipinos are agog over No. 11, especially today, Friday, Nov. 11, 2011 that countless of bettors have cast their lot on number eleven in tonight’s games.

In fact, the lotto outlet at Cherry Foodarama on Congressional Road in Barangay Toro, Quezon City has run out of the number 11 as far as the two digits game is concerned.

Bettors believe that number 11 would be their lucky number tonight by betting on 1-1, or 1-1-1 or 1-1-1-1 for the four digits lotto game.

Nov. 11, 2011 is the two-thousandth-and-eleventh year since the death of Jesus Christ, hence it is 11-11-11 in the calendar.

For the past decade, No. 11 has outranked No. 13 or No. 7 as lucky or unlucky number.

This is especially true in the 9/11 terror attack on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

Of course, two jetliners hijacked by terrorists destroyed the Twin Towers which looked like an eleven and the US emergency phone number is 911.

In the spiritual side that can be read in the Holy Bible, number 11 has been highlighted a number of times.

For example,:"The second judgment was Noah's Flood, Genesis 7:11, the 'curse of Canaan' was executed upon the 'eleven' sons of Canaan.The judgment on Nimrod occurred in Genesis chapter 'eleven' verse seven." And Sodom? That's Genesis 19:11 ("And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.") The judgment of Egypt? "There were eleven of them — including the boils in Exodus 9:11."

Superstitious or not, but Filipino lotto bettors believe that number 11 is their lucky number to win millions of pesos. (PNA) RMA/RBC/utb
