The National Lottery has released figures this morning showing that the ME postcode is the luckiest postcode for the lottery based on the number of top prize-winning entries as a proportion of its adult population. It is only the third time that the ME postcode has been in the top 10 and now claims the number one spot from Ilford in Essex.
Apparently the Medway Towns has one top prize-winning ticket for every 6,119 adults who are eligible to play the Lottery, compared with Ilford in second place with one in every 6,839.
Furthermore, it is revealed that one in every 9,423 of people in the UK who are eligible to play the Lottery has now won a share of a National Lottery jackpot, compared to one in 19,000 when figures were first published in 2002.
Despite ME being the luckiest postcode it is hasn't yet worked for me - I haven't won more than a tenner on the lottery for about 3 years. Grrr.
