The National Lottery has created 21 millionaires in the G postcode area, which covers Alexandria, Clydebank, Helensburgh and Dumbarton as well as Glasgow, in the last two years alone.

The city has also had a total of 106 big wins since the first draw in 1994, placing it second nationally.

But it’s Paisley (the PA postcode) that has been named as the luckiest, with more winners of £50,000 or more per head of population in Scotland since 2014.
