'Lost' Creator

Lotto Winners Are Cursed!!

1/5/2011 9:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Those lucky bastards who played those damned "Lost" numbers in the Mega Millions lottery and walked away with $150 better enjoy it while they can ... because the show's co-creator still claims the numbers are "cursed!"

TMZ spoke with Damon Lindelof -- who tells us, "“I was tempted to buy a lotto ticket when I heard about the huge jackpot, but I never would've played the LOST numbers as the show clearly stated they were cursed and I'm a nervous enough flier as it is.”

As we previously reported -- several of the numbers from the show synced up with the winning numbers from last night's Mega Millions lottery ... and the Lost-aholics who played 4,8,15,16,23 and 42 may have walked away with $150.

Don't buy a chicken franchise.
