You've gotta ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?

Well, if you live in Portsmouth, then you should probably answer in the affirmative, as it's just been named as the UK's 'luckiest' city. Online gaming site Mariacasino.co.uk studied the locations of 8,529 winners of casino and bingo games, before adjusting their results to factor in the population size of each settlement.

Portsmouth, Liverpool and Bangor came out on top, while the Yorkshire settlement of Ripon came last, accompanied by Lichfield, Coventry and Worcester down the bottom.

Interestingly, they also compiled a list of 'perceived luck' - formed by studying Twitter mentions of 'lucky events' such as finding a fiver down the back of the sofa, or winning a bet - Newcastle, Manchester and Liverpool came out on top of this one, suggesting that to really Get Lucky, you need to get yourself up north.

Take a look at the lists below:
