Of the 5,500 millionaires made since it launched in 1994, 168 are from the Birmingham area.

That is streets ahead of the 133 from second-luckiest Belfast and 125 in third-placed Glasgow.

Brum postcode winners include Dawn and Malcolm Bosworth, who scooped £5.8million in 2015, and Paul and Marie Kibler with £2.2million a year later.

For prizes of more than £50,000, Galashiels has had the most winners per head of population. One in every 894 players in the tiny Scottish Borders town has banked a big prize.

National Lottery winners’ adviser Andy Carter said: “We go to every corner of the country to pay out big prizes and make millionaires.”

He added: “Thanks to our National Lottery players, 565,000 Good Cause grants have been given out to projects big and small.

“That’s the equivalent of 200 life-changing projects in every UK postcode district ­making a huge impact on communities all over the country.”
