Luck, in this context, only leads to feeding mother's insatiable disease of greed. Paul can't generate enough luck to "earn" his mother's love because the money only makes her harder. At times mother comes close to feeling something maternal but her disease is too strong. Paul will die earning his mother's love. Uncle Oscar is a part of this unhealthy triad but remains immune to the voices and greed festering in this house.
