Dundee tops lottery luck league table in Scotland

The Dundee area is one of the luckiest places to live in Scotland for winning a major National Lottery prize, according to new statistics.

Operators Camelot said that per head of population, the Dundee postcode (DD) had the highest number of people winning prizes of £50,000 or more.

The figures, published by the National Lottery, said the postcode ranked 10th in the UK as a whole.

The area has seen 14 millionaires created since the lottery started.

A National Lottery spokesman said: "It's fascinating to see that the Dundee area still remains one of the luckiest places to live, where for many years residents have claimed a high percentage of prizes."
