The Luckiest Towns In The UK

So, now we have split all the data for lottery winners into regions, let’s go one step further and have a look at the luckiest towns and postcodes in the UK. When we look at the percentage of major UK lottery prize winners per capita the luckiest postcode is RM, which is Romford in Essex, in second place is TS, which is Teeside in the North East of the country, and picking up the bronze medal is WA, which is Warrington in the North West. Here is a full list of the top 10 luckiest postcodes/towns:

In terms of the pure number of big winners since the inception of the lottery in the UK, Birmingham has created the most big winners with a huge 3% all on its own, however it must be noted that this is essentially down to the fact that the size of the postcode is absolutely massive compared to most.

And there we have it, you would have thought that the law of averages would mean an even distribution of luck across the UK, however it appears that that may not actually be the case!
