Some people are just born lucky it feels like. They always get the right answer on a random guess, they invest in a business that grows quickly...the list is endless. But sometimes plays in our favor when we find a $5 bill on the ground.
But not all luck works in a good way. Bad luck does exist too. For example, finding out out a snack you own has expired before you could eat it. Or discovering a hole in one of your favorite shirts.
But with bad and good luck both existing, it does make many wonder if where they live factors in to luck. So, Zippia looked into that.
How was luck for the states determined?
Zippia listed the factors:
- Lotto winners
- Median Income
- Low unemployment
- Average life expectancy
- Weather fatalities
- Car Accident Deaths Per 100k
So all the factors are all in place. Now for the real question, who is the luckiest state in the United States of America? It's none other than...Minnesota!
Wait hold on Minnesota?
Yes Minnesota claims the top spot. But this is Texas, we've got to be pretty high up there as well right? Everything is bigger here.
Let's keep checking to see where Texas has landed. We have to at least be in the Top 25 right? Well about that...
Texas is ranked 38th in luckiest states
Wait 38th? We're that low on the list? That just doesn't make sense at all.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple
A while back, I asked the good people of Temple
if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.
This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).
So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.
Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
