A mum-of-four is kicking herself after she missed out on a £3.6million jackpot by changing her lottery numbers for one week only.

Unlucky Lorna Hart made the catastrophic decision to swap her usual EuroMillions numbers – 3, 25, 27, 28, and 29 – for the HotPicks ticket, opting for a random selection of numbers for the main game.

When she went online to check the numbers on Wednesday, her heart sank as she realised she would have won a life-changing amount had she not switched her usual numbers.

The 45-year-old said: “I pick those numbers every week because they’re significant – one’s the day I met my current partner, one is my daughter’s birthday, another is the day I fell in love with my partner.”

The single mum, who suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome, has played the EuroMillions every single week since it began and dreamt of winning and buying her own home.

She said: “I feel a bit deflated – I’m disabled, I’ve got ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis), so it would have made a big difference to my life.

“I had to give up work about eight years ago, it was quite a life crisis. I’ve had a pretty tough time of it.

“That kind of money would have meant a great deal and given me that security – it’s quite hard being on benefits.

“I would have bought my own house, as I currently rent.

“My daughter’s just finishing university so I would have found her somewhere to live – it’s really tough at the moment.”

But despite the disappointment, Lorna is able to laugh about her misfortune and says that she is going out with her friends for ‘cake instead of Champagne’.

She added: “At least I’ve got family and friends. That’s what’s really important.”
