EuroMillions Jackpot for Grimsby Couple
Updated: Thursday 24th April 2014
A couple from Grimsby proved that you don’t need to have been playing lottery games for years to win a jackpot when their EuroMillions ticket matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars on Friday 4 February. There were five jackpot-winning tickets for that particular draw, but because it was a rollover jackpot worth £24,368,199, the ticket owned by Susan and Lee Mullen still had a value of £4,873,639, which isn’t at all bad considering they had only been playing the EuroMillions and Lotto games for six weeks. Now the couple, who have six children, are looking forward to a lifetime of financial security.
Susan discovered their win when she checked the EuroMillions lottery results online on the morning of Saturday 5 February. The results for Friday 4 February were 02, 11, 24, 35 and 47, and the Lucky Star numbers were 5 and 9.
“I booted it up to check the numbers and thought… hang on a minute, my ticket looks exactly the same as that!” Susan explained. “I dragged my husband out of the bathroom to take a look and then I dragged my eldest son out of bed too! We just couldn’t believe it!”
Susan is unable to work because of a disability, and Lee was discharged from the Royal Navy on medical grounds in 1998, so financial security has been a concern for some time – especially with the recent recession hitting people hard. That makes this EuroMillions jackpot win even more life-changing.
“This money means everything to me and my family,” Susan said. “My husband and I are both unable to work so money has always been tight and there have been some difficult times. Six weeks ago I decided to start playing the lottery again. Don’t ask me why, I was just sure we would win.”
This inexplicable confidence has paid off massively, and we congratulate Susan and Lee on their life-changing EuroMillions win. Coincidentally, the EuroMillions game has another £25 million rollover jackpot up for grabs this Friday 18 February, so if you fancy having a go at landing it, click here to buy your tickets online.
