Surely this year is your lucky year when it comes to the Grand National?
Luck has never seemed so simple after a couple from Scunthorpe, David and Kathleen Long, won £1m in the EuroMillions draw last week - the second time they won the jackpot in two years.

To help you decide, The Independent's Kevin Garside provides some sound advice on picking your own favourite.Reuse content
