Wouldn't consider myself a superstitious person, but I have a few completely illogical things I do or have done to encourage some luck, not just on slots but also in sports or playing a game.

I blow on the dice when I roll them in a board game. I always played my best games of football in a pair of new boots, so if I had a big game, would waste money on new boots for the occasion.

I used to play a lot of slots at my friends when I started, he is a West Ham fan who sometimes goes off to the toilet in the last 10 minutes of a match because they would often score when he did. We would sometimes get his missus to press spin because we asked her once and a bonus dropped, after that she was known as having 'the lucky finger'.

With slots, I sometimes walk away and leave a bonus to play out, because my biggest win on DOA2 was when I was making a coffee and missing all the action, so, I still sometimes walk away when a bonus drops - as bonkers as some casino rulings, I know.

Yesterday, I was playing a game in demo trying for over an hour to trigger a bonus and my little girl asked what I was doing. I don't tell her it's gambling or even let her watch for any length of time - I'm a bit overprotective like that but said I was trying to get a game to do something for a long time and it just wasn't happening. She went and got my hat and gave me a kiss for luck, literally as the bonus dropped.

I won't be asking her for any lucky kisses, but I might start wearing my hat if things are playing dry.

Does anyone else do anything illogical for luck when spinning the reels?

I get the missus to stop being a shrew, start being nicer and to kiss my TraLaLa.

Needless to say it doesn't really work, I lose all my money and my RTP's at minus 35%

Manual spins are superior to autoplay, and not only that, spacebar is better than using the mouse.
When using autos, never do more than 25 at a time to avoid getting 'stuck' in a bad streak.
If you get a bad streak you dont want 500 autospins during that streak, right?
Is the slot you are playing not in a good mood? Dont worry, changing browser will fix that.
10% of the time it works 100% of the time.

Oh wait, you asked for illogical things.
Nah, i dont do anything like that.

deep south of Eu
when I was playing football (ages ago) I always got into the field with the right foot first. Always refused to wear a even numbered jersey (so that usually I had number 11 or number 7 on it)

I am a big fan of Cincinnati Bengals, and this playoff season I dressed the same socks and slip during all the post season games, without never washing them. During the Superbowl I was smelling like a rubbish dump (and we lost nevertheless).

when slotting, my totally illogical superstitious manias are in clicking in a very particular point on the "spin" button, or to change the bet size after a very particular number of spins.

my former GF (she is a HR gambler and TBH I think she went out of control too many times) had a series of superstitious actions to be done expecially when hitting a feature: before pressing the "start" button: lighting a cig, going to the toilet, washing her hands.
