Lost Out On The Mega Millions?
If you ever watched the TV show “Lost” you may have been lost, but also you may know that 4,8,15,16,23 and 42 played a big part. What if you played those in the Mega Millions this past week? What would the payout have been?
Finally, a purpose for those "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. Honestly the one time I haven’t played them on the lotto, they hit!
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 on the show only won $114 million.
The show's co-creator still claims the numbers are "cursed!" TMZ reporters spoke with Damon Lindelof who says "“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.”
Two people reportedly picked the winning numbers. Hopefully, they won't book air travel to Australia in the near future or they could end up on an island that goes back in time, has big smoke monsters, and never explained a thing!
