The Lottery Millionaire Map. Who're The Luckiest Players Of Them All?

Posted on September 12th, 2011

Lottery Company Camelot has developed a map that shows the luckiest lottery areas- where in the UK the most millionaires have been created. Just in case you feel like travelling around to buy your tickets!
And it’s waye aye, doon to the toon and off to the valleys boyos, to coin the usual stereotypical catchphrases, as the NE of England and Wales have come top of the National Lottery league table of “millionaire hotspots”, Camelot said.
The piece of work maps the home regions for all 2,715 millionaires created since the National Lottery was launched in 1994 and the Lotto company has declared these two regions as the “luckiest” areas to live.
With 164 National Lottery millionaires, one in 14,211 North East residents has now banked a 7 -figure jackpot! (Actually, that’s not bad!)
Wales has bagged 179 millionaires – one winner in 14,502 – over the last 16 years.
Third was Yorkshire, with jackpots helping 272 lucky players to buy their “Des Res”, slap on the fake tan and jet off to Monaco for the summer (are you spotting any green with envy barbed comments in this spiel by the way).
The region with the scarcest millionaire jackpot winners was Northern Ireland, just over 50 7-figure or more winners were created.
The Millionaire Map, which includes both public and secretive winners, is measured on the number of millionaires created per capita (of adults who can play). So watch it- you could be living next to one! Look out for perma tans, gold plated gnomes and lots of jingly jangly items on wrists (we’re just jealous). New automatic garage doors that open to the sound of  the “Dukes of Hazard” theme tune are also a dead giveaway.
In terms of numbers, of course, due to the size of populations, more loadsamoneys have been created in London, the Midlands and across the South East of England. BUT, Geordieland and surrounding areas is the best part of the UK to live if you want to bag a million plus prize (based on historical numbers anyway).
Everyone always wants to know where is the luckiest shop, village, city is. So now you know! Check out the map! Just remember though- at the end of the day it’s a lottery.”
Oh, and by the way, Tuesday’s EuroMillions roll-over is expected to reach an eye watering £138 million, the fifth biggest jackpot ever in the UK.
