Week in week out, we purchase our lotto tickets, maybe we'll win someday!

While the chances are slim to none that will ever happen (sorry to break it to you), one study has claimed that people with certain names are much more likely to win the jackpot.

Online lottery website, Jackpot.com, collected loads of National lottery data ever since it began in 1995, and found patterns in those winning.

Apparently, tradesmen called Derek, who were 44-years-old were most likely to scoop the jackpot.

 Here are the top five names:

1. Derek (four wins)
2. David/Dave (also four wins)
3. Alex (three wins) 
4. John (three wins)
5. Karen (three wins)

We're guessing if your name's Karen and your partner is called Derek, you'll get double the chance of your lottery numbers being drawn.

While the top five lotto names are heavily male-dominated, woman actually win bigger lump sums than men, according to the study.
