The man didn’t find out about his big jackpot win until the lottery provider called him days later.
He said: “That means if I hadn’t made that mistake, I would never have won – f*****g hell.”
Another player has opened up about her £23m win, and how she made an eerie prediction before hitting the jackpot.
The woman said she’d endured a tough few months when she joked with her friend that if she won lotto, she’d go on a trip around the world.
