A not-so-grim town after EuroMillions win

The town of Grimsby is no longer so grim after its fourth win on Tuesday the 17th of March with EuroMillions. The lucky couple have already begun the celebrations after winning the £209,614.40 prize. Malcolm Taylor and partner Mary Connor’s win have continued the area’s lucky knack and reputation for generating big lottery winners. You could say that this town really is the complete contrast to its unfortunate name. 

This lucky couple managed to match the main five numbers including one of the Lucky Stars in the EuroMillions draw. Their EuroMillions winning numbers were as follows:

11 – 23 – 26 – 38 – 44 and the two Lucky Star numbers of 01 and 08.

Despite this town’s ironic name, it received a more appropriate nickname after so many of its successive wins. The town became nicknamed “Winsby” after it happened that there were three multi-million lottery wins in the year 1998. It was back in January of this year that there was a win from this town. The win had the value of £4.8 million for the EuroMillions lottery. It just seems that this lottery favours this town for some reason!


Malcolm, a former manufacturer of curtains and blinds, said he could not believe his eyes after checking his lucky numbers online on the night of the EuroMillions lottery draw. Funny enough, this couple had actually won small amounts in the past. This town truly has some magic cast upon it! They said they both felt like children waiting with anticipation for Christmas that night they realised they had won the prize and couldn’t get any sleep. 


Mary, Malcolm’s partner, said that Malcolm seemed extremely calm at first because he was sceptical that they had in fact won. She also couldn’t believe it herself. Mary told the press, “I kept saying ‘I can’t believe we’ve won, things like this don’t happen to people like us.’”

The couple plan to use their winnings on a series of exciting and adventurous holidays. They are not the type of couple who immediately splurge on four seasons hotels and private jet flights. No. This couple crave freedom and adventure.  They have a Toronto break lined up where they are due to attend a friend’s wedding. After which, they want to visit Las Vegas, Arizona, and Niagara Falls. This humble English couple really crave the American spirit adventure. Malcolm is especially looking forward to taking a road trip across Death Valley in California in a classic Ford Mustang Convertible.

The lucky couple from ‘Winsby’ also want to treat their six children and fifteen grandchildren. They kept their EuroMillions lottery win from their family a secret for over a week before holding a lunch to break the news to them. 

Malcolm further explained, “We wanted to surprise all of the children once we knew the money was safely in the bank and we could give them a share of our winnings. We have a big family and we want to be able to treat all of them. It is a fantastic feeling that we are now able to do that.”
