EAST Cowes has been named one of the luckiest places in the country to live by Paddy Power Games.

After crawling through six years of jackpot winning data, Paddy Power Games have revealed the most successful locations in the UK based on the highest total amount won, and the number of winners on Paddy Power’s gaming platform.

Paddy Power Games looked at the geographical location of six years of winners, which provided compelling evidence for the total amounts won in different regions across the UK.

The data unveiled which location has Lady Luck on their side in the top 10 biggest winners.

East Cowes residents won a total of £1,597,131 and the town is the sixth most fruitful winning location in the UK — notably winning more jackpots than large UK cities, such as Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds.

Newcastle took number one in the top ten list of winners.

A spokesperson for Paddy Power said: “Kirstie and Phil were right all along — when it comes to profit, it’s all about location, location, location.

"From Geordie joy, to Isle of Wight winners, our comprehensive research demonstrates the existence of some clear ‘jackpot hotspots’ around the UK.

"Lady Luck has clearly taken up residence in East Cowes, with £1,597,131 in winnings, making it one of the luckiest places in the UK.”
