Thornton Heath is the luckiest place in the country, a survey has revealed.

An  online betting company used win and loss data from 300,000 people in the UK and Northern Ireland throughout 2017 to compile a list of the places where the most amount of wins were made.

By dividing the amount of wins per stake, Lottoland, which offers online bets on the results of more than 30 different lottery draws, arrived at the ratio of wins per attempt.

They were able to see how lucky each area was and Thornton Heath scored  a staggering win ratio of 0.729.

Thornton Heath came out on top compared with major cities and towns in the UK such as Bristol, Brighton and Nottingham.

Thornton Heath took the crown: out of the 2,200 people that placed stakes in this area over a one-year period,

The data also revealed that the luckiest names out there for males include Steve and Michael, with Barry topping the list of lucky people .

At the other end of the spectrum the unluckiest name for men is Dominic, Edward and Ashley. The luckiest name for women was discovered to be Claire, while the unluckiest name was Rebecca. Men were around 1.34 per cent  more lucky than women.

According to the  stats people over the age of 60 are the most fortunate out of everyone while 41 to 45-year-olds tuck at the bottom of the barrel with the worst luck of all the age groups.

So if your name is Barry, you’re aged over 60 and you happen to live in Thornton Heath, then you are likely to be the UK’s luckiest person.
