'Lost' Numbers

PAY OFF

in Mega Millions Lottery

1/5/2011 9:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Finally, a purpose for those damn "Lost" numbers -- because if you played the same cursed digits that Hurley used on the show ... you could have walked away with $150 in last night's Mega Millions lottery.

Mega Millions Winning Numbers
Of course, Hurley's numbers were 4,8,15,16,23 and 42. 

The Mega Millions numbers were 4,8,15,25 and 47 ... with 42 being the Mega Ball number.

Last night's jackpot was $355 million. Hurley only won $114 million.

Two people reportedly picked the winning numbers. Hopefully, they won't book air travel to Australia in the near future ... they could end up on a TV show with absolutely zero closure.

Yesterday, there was a headline about the Mega Millions jackpot on the USA Today website. Someone posted those numbers (4,8,15,16,23 and 42) in the comment section. Funny. I could have won $150 if I played them.

@what He said

If you had more culture you would know who Hurley is.
Also if you were smarter you would have searched it instead of writing such unnecessary comment.

Ok am I the only one that finds the numbers different. 4,8,15,25,47-42 is not the same as 4,8,15,16,23-42. You know close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades

How do you not know who Hurley is?? Also yes the numbers are off if you had read the top of the story you would see it says you would have won $150.00 not the $355 million ....

I'm supposed be writing a legal paper and I find myself here. Then I find myself researching how much I would have won if I had played the numbers that were on a show I never watched. I had to break through firewalls for this. Only to find out that #1 superman, was right all along ... one hundred and fifty bucks. I have ADHD or something. Dam you TMZ.

very cool - the guy who came up with those numbers for Lost was ahead of his time. whether the Lost numbers match perfectly or not it's actually very cool, especially considering the odds against something like that happening. and to have the mega ball match too - fun
