The town has been named the luckiest in Yorkshire for winning high value Premium Bond prizes.
Halifax is a close second and Harrogate is third.
But Sheffield has slipped to become the unluckiest town in the region.
National Savings and Investments (NS&I), who runs Premium Bonds, conducted the study based on the top 120 postcodes in the UK, of which 10 are in Yorkshire and Humberside.
Huddersfield has seen a dramatic reversal of fortunes over the last year, as it shot up the table from 110th in the national rankings in 2004/05 to 20th in 2005/06.
In the 12 months up to last month, Huddersfield punters scooped £188,000 in money, with a total of 68 wins of at least £1,000.
The lucky five in Yorkshire are; 1. Huddersfield; 2. Halifax; 3. Harrogate; 4. Leeds; 5. Doncaster.
Wakefield is the second unluckiest place in Yorkshire and Humberside, and has consistently been among the unluckiest five towns in the region over the past three years. It is also one of the unluckiest places in the UK ranked at 106th position nationally.
In Yorkshire and Humberside, more than1.7m people own Premium Bonds worth over £1.8bn.
However, nearly 21,000 prizes worth over £1.2m remain unclaimed. There is no time limit on claims.
Sally Swait, Premium Bonds manager at NS&I said: "Congratulations to Huddersfield ontheir massive jump up the lucky town league table. Every Premium Bond in Yorkshire and Humberside has an equal chance of winning a prize."
