Lucky Lottery Addresses
Updated: Monday 20th July 2015
Research into lucky lottery addresses conducted by National Lottery organisers has shown that players who happen to live at ‘number 3’ on any particular street or road have won more lottery cash than players who live at other addresses. Those who live at number 3 have won a total of £77,180,678 since the National Lottery was first launched in November 1994, with those living at numbers 2, 5, 6 and 4 completing the top five.
House numbers 17, 8, 1, 11 and 18 make up the top ten lucky lottery addresses, but before you start thinking about moving home in order to improve your chances, we ought to point out that house numbers 1 to 6 are arguably more common than any others due to streets that only have a few buildings. Whether or not this possibility has been accounted for in the research is something we don’t know.
What we do know – and this is according to the same research – is that some postcode areas are luckier than others. The top five towns in order of lottery jackpot success are Medway Towns in Kent, Ilford in Essex, Romford in Essex, Sunderland and Newcastle Upon Tyne.
Again, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the people living in certain towns are really any luckier than those living elsewhere. It could simply be that more people play the lottery on a regular basis in the ‘lucky’ towns, or that they buy more tickets for each draw. Both of those possibilities would explain why some places quite naturally have more jackpot winners than other.
Of course, if you happen to live at ‘number 3’ (or at any of the top ten addresses) then this latest lottery research might well inspire you to either play more often or buy an extra ticket or two for games that offer particularly large jackpots.
Talking of large jackpots, there is a massive £64,000,000 up for grabs in the EuroMillions game this Friday 21 August, and around £4,500,000 in the Lotto game on Saturday 22 August. You can buy lottery tickets online for both games and see if your own address can prove itself to be lucky for you this week.Published: Thursday 20th August 2009
