If you have never been lucky with your regular lottery numbers, it might be time to switch to the Postcode Lottery.

Worcestershire has seen its fair share of Postcode Lottery winners - with some neighbours sharing prizes as big as £3 million.  

Here are the Worcestershire postcodes that have seen the biggest winners since 2015...

In 2018, this Kidderminster postcode won big and 11 lucky players scooped the biggest cash prize - 10 won £125,000 each and another won £250,000 after playing with two tickets.

She said at the time: “This is beyond my wildest dreams. It's life changing.

"I haven't had a holiday since 2011 so I'd love to go away somewhere.

"It's my 60th birthday next year and I have relatives in Australia so I might go over there to celebrate - it's always been a dream of mine to go."

WR10 3AQ

This Pershore postcode proved itself lucky back in 2018 when 214 played in the WR10 3 area won a share of £3 million.

Three neigbours won the biggest share of the day when the full postcode was released, winning £321,170 each.

Joy Salt was one lucky winner who scooped £321,170.

At the time, the mother of two said: “I’m in complete shock. This will give me an opportunity to get things that I couldn’t have dreamed of before.

“The idea of cutting down at work for me and my husband now that we’re getting on a bit is the main thing now. We can go on a nice holiday and have a better quality of life.

“My husband was a bit sceptical about it all and he didn’t come with me. I texted him when I got the £7,923 and then when I got the big amount, I rang him and told him to sit down.”

Winners of the £30,000 prize


This Worcester postcode proved itself to be lucky last Christmas.

She said: “I’ve just been given the biggest prize in my life. I know I can do an awful lot of good with the money.

“I think I’m going to increase the amount of tickets I play with too as I feel like I can be a small part of a big thing that’s helping a lot of people. It’s especially good at Christmas as people deserve to be looked after.

“I also want to go on a big holiday and go back to Washington DC. My friend wants to visit her friend in Nebraska so now I can do this without hesitation.

“This win really has made my year. It’s the biggest Christmas I’ve ever had,”

Back in 2017, Martin said:  "A colleague of mine played and when I found out about the charities I would support by playing, I signed up immediately.

"When I told dad about it, he didn't think we’d both be able to win at the same postcode – but the whole point is winning together."

She said: "One of my best friends won in last month's Postcode Millions so I didn't think you would be back to Kidderminster any time soon. Things like this just don't happen to people like me – it's totally surreal!

"My eldest son has additional support needs and I've been a stay-at-home mum for the last few years to make sure I'm there for him, so this win will make a massive difference to us as a family."

WR10 3DQ

Two Eckington neighbours won a combined total of £60,000 in August of last year.

Four Redditch neighbours won £30,000 each last year.

He said:  "It's not every day you get a surprise like this! I didn't believe it was real when I received the phone call, so I think it will take quite a while to sink in, but it's been a very nice afternoon indeed."

What is the People’s Postcode Lottery?

People's Postcode Lottery is not like the ordinary lottery.

It is a subscription-based lottery where people sign up with their postcodes for £10 a month.

If a winning postcode is drawn, every subscriber in that postcode wins a cash prize.

Players are automatically entered into ever draw and prizes are announced every day of the month- sometimes they are as little as £10, other times you could win thousands.

Every Saturday and Sunday, winning postcodes are announced where players each win £30,000.

Once  a month, players in one postcode will share an incredible £3 million between them.

Best of all, 32 per cent of the ticket price goes to charities.

Since 2015, nine postcodes have won big on the People’s Postcode Lottery in the region- three of which have managed to win the jackpot £3 million prize.
