A STUDENT claims he is ‘the unluckiest guy in the UK’ after missing out on a huge £14m EuroMillions jackpot – because he bought the wrong winning lottery ticket.
Rossi Carmina, 23, bought the ticket on January 3 after a friend said he “seemed like a lucky guy” – but he was disappointed when the National Lottery app revealed he hadn’t won a dime that weekend.
But when he swiped his card to check the winning number, he was stunned to see that every number matched.
To his horror, Rossi later realized he had entered the EuroMillions draw on 7 January rather than 4 January which coincided with his number – meaning the ticket “won”. “His is really worthless.
The app displayed the winning numbers for the January 4 draw – 18, 28, 35, 36, 41, 06 and 11 – right below Rosario’s identical saved numbers.
Rossi said if he bought a ticket for the next day’s draw instead of taking part on January 7, he would be £14,189,900 richer – admitting he feels he is “the unluckiest guy in England” .
The freelance artist claims his numbers are randomly selected and saved on the app since he won his arm in a number of draws last year.
Rossi’s brother shared a screenshot of the painful near miss on Twitter.
Many people said they “couldn’t be true to themselves” if they made the same mistake.
He claims he is now learning to accept “nearly impossible” events as “fate” and is forced to give up his dream of retiring, buying a Ferrari and his mother. him a new home.
Rossi, from Bromley, south-east London, said: “You’re lucky to have a chance for the numbers to match but not buying a ticket is quite the opposite. You feel like the unluckiest person in England. at that time”.
“He’s coming home in the next two days. I’m thinking about all the things I could do. I could buy my mom a new house and a Ferrari. It’s hard not to think about it. I ready for life.
“A friend of mine randomly commented on January 2nd saying ‘you seem like a pretty lucky guy, you should play the lottery’. I laughed it off but then decided to reload the app.
“I found I had the numbers saved there so I bought a ticket for January 7 with those numbers. When that time came, I checked and I didn’t win anything.
“I saw you could look at the numbers earlier and I saw that my numbers matched. I was confused, so I called up. [The National Lottery] to ask about it but she doesn’t really understand.
“If I had bought it on the 5th instead of the 7th I would have matched it perfectly. If I had bought the right ticket I would have won £14m just days after my friend told me I was lucky.”
“I tried to forget about it because I thought that was the best way to deal with it. I didn’t want to live my life thinking about what could happen.
“There were a lot of comments saying ‘I can’t live with myself’, but I’m okay. It’s happened, what can I do. Maybe it’s fate.”
Rossi admits “crazy coincidence” has made it hard for him to focus on this month’s deadline – but he hasn’t been delayed entering a future lottery and will still buy a ticket “regularly”. “.
And he denied claims he edited his number in the app to make it look like he was out of luck.
