Is Phoenix One of the “Luckiest” Cities in the Nation?
What do Phoenix, Louisville, San Francisco and Wilmington, Delaware all have in common? They’re apparently very lucky places to live!
Men’s Health just named Phoenix as the third luckiest town in the nation.
Here’s how the magazine defines “luck”: the most winners of Powerball, Mega Millions, and Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes; most hole-in-ones (PGA); fewest lightning strikes (including the fatal kind) and deaths from falling objects (Vaisala Inc., National Climatic Data Center, CDC); and least money lost on lottery tickets and race betting (Bureau of Labor Statistics).
