Lady Luck was on Nelson's side last year - for it was named the fourth luckiest town in Lancashire.

Good fortune favoured Nelson over Colne, with 19% of the town's bets being won, according to Lottoland.

The company, which offers gambling opportunities on lotteries across the globe, revealed that Colne residents enjoyed a slightly less favourable 17% win ratio.

Gambles paid off less often in Burnley, making it the ninth least likely town in the county to strike gold, after Lady Luck granted cash prizes in 15% of the town's wages.

Still, things could be worse for Burnley and Pendle people.

For the unluckiest place to tempt your fortune in the whole of the UK was Clitheroe, where villagers won only 10% of its bets.
