Luck is a statistic that affects many different aspects of the game, such as the drop rates of geodes and chance of getting treasure from Fishing. There are two kinds of luck: Daily Luck, which is determined by the game, and Luck Buffs gained from eating certain food.
You can check your daily luck by right-clicking on the Television and selecting "Fortune Teller." The Fortune Teller will give an indication of the daily luck stat modifier.
Luck is not affected by viewing the Fortune Teller Television Program (i.e., the luck value is not neutral if the player does not view the program, the luck value remains constant regardless.) Daily Luck does not change if the day is restarted.
A 0.01 increase in daily luck generally means a random event is about 1% more likely to happen.

|The spirits feel neutral today. The day is in your hands.||Luck (≥ -0.02 and ≤ +0.02, but not 0)|
|This is rare. The spirits feel absolutely neutral today.||Luck (0)|
|The spirits are somewhat annoyed / mildly perturbed today. Luck will not be on your side.||Luck (≥ -0.07 and < -0.02)|
|The spirits are very displeased today. They will do their best to make your life difficult.||Luck (< -0.07)|
