SLOUGH residents often have mixed opinions about the town they live in, some love the town and other's hate it.

But if you're looking to strike gold, then you're in the right place as Slough has been named as one of the luckiest places in the UK.

According to the bingo site, the town has been ranked as ‘the 3oth luckiest place’ to live in the UK due to the number of winnings that have been collected in the area.

It is the only town in Berkshire to have made it on the list.

The list is based on how many wins have been declared based on the selected area’s population, per 100,000 people.

Taking the number one spot was Wigan in Greater Manchester, whilst Huddersfield was ranked joint 30th with Slough.

Aylesbury, which came in fifth, lost out to Lincoln in fourth, Bolton in third and Doncaster in second.

The website said: "So much of life is down to luck. From big life events like meeting the love of our lives, to smaller things like avoiding the rain or winning at online bingo, chance has a big part to play.

"However, nothing has more of an impact on our lives than where we’re born, and the communities we grow up in. These things shape who we are and what we become, but are completely out of our control.

"With this in mind, we wanted to discover which towns and cities in the UK are home to the most fortunate inhabitants. We tracked which towns in the country experience the highest rate of big winners of online games. These are wins where the lucky individual has won £1,000 or more."
