The number of UFO sightings in China has steadily increased recently and gamblers are hoping for more. Chinese gamblers see the sighting of UFO’s as good omen that will improve their chances of winning big.
There have been eight UFO sightings in China over the last four months alone, leaving gamblers staring at the sky for hours on end in anticipation.
"I have a friend I frequently go to Macau with and before the past time we went, he told me he had to look in the sky," explained Byron Blandt, an American living in China. "When I asked him why, he said, 'because last time I went to Macau, I saw a UFO before I left, and I won $2,200,' so we looked for UFO's."
The Chinese government has stated that these sightings are not of UFO’s but of military exercises but the most recent one cannot be explained by the government. Baotou Airport had to close down on September the 11th due to a UFO being spotted on their Air Traffic Management Bureau radar.
