London, UK, 8 August 2008 — Today, iGaming news media publication, FortuneZ launches foreign exchange market news segment.
“The publication’s board has decided on a controversial move, to introduce foreign exchange market (FOREX, FX) news to the 8-year old iGaming publication,” said a spokesperson from FortuneZ. “This decision to launch the segment was made last year, however, the board chose today specifically as it is an auspicious date 08/08/08, which testifies our brand name of ‘FORTUNE’.”
8 is the luckiest number in Chinese culture because 八 sounds like 發 (fa), which means “wealth”, “fortune”, and “prosper” in Chinese. Multiples of eight are even better, as 88 bears a resemblance to 囍 (shuāng xǐ), or “double happiness”. And in FortuneZ’s case, it is a triple 888 date, and quadrupled because it is on the publication 8th year anniversary.
It would be interesting to note that most notable iGaming platform is also triple 8 – 888casino, founded in 1997, just 3-years earlier than FortuneZ.
