Forget the Polls-Virgin Games Predicts the "Luckiest" Politician

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) - Virgin Games (, the leading online gaming company, has analysed a 40,000 player sample of its database to find the luckiest star sign and name in an attempt to predict the outcome of the upcoming general election. It was a close call for the top spot, but as far as our leaders' go the luckiest star sign is shared by the ambitious yet grounded and ever practical Capricorn, Nick Clegg, born 7th January 1967. 

Following closely behind is Piscean Gordon, born 20th February 1951. Pisceans are very sensitive and have the ability to read others well. When they have a hunch, you may want to go with it, as they are very intuitive. Trailing in a conservative puddle of tears is poor Libran, David, born 9th October 1966. However, he can be comforted in the knowledge that Librans are very easy to like because of their supposed charming ways.

What's in a name?

Again Nick, our Lib Dem golden boy came out on top as having the luckiest name amongst our three candidates – and following in his shadow is anyone called Gordon. Once again, poor David trails behind.

Simon Burridge, CEO of Virgin Games, commented: "This election is one of the most unpredictable in years – we may as well look at star signs and names! While skill is often a factor when it comes to playing in an online casino, it is interesting to see the luck of certain star signs and names. What this shows us is that it doesn't pay to be a Libran called David, but if your name is Nick and you're a Capricorn, take a gamble. You'll most likely be luckier than the others. As far as being a Piscean called Gordon goes – life's a gamble – which way will it go?"
