The LOST Numbers Win Some Big Lottery Bucks

LOST numbers wall clockMaybe Hurley’s numbers weren’t such a curse after all.

On Tuesday night, the numbers drawn for the $355 million jackpot Mega Millions Lottery turned out to be purrrdy close to those familiar island digits we loved to ponder about (and then saw scrawled all over a cave wall in what looked like a child’s chicken scratch. By the way your handwriting stinks, Jacob.). Observe: the LOST numbers are 4 8 15 16 23 42. The Mega Millions numbers were 4 8 15 25 47 42. Uh, dude. Whoah.

The Huffington Post reported that more than 41,000 people won from having the LOST numbers on their ticket, each person winning $150 smackers. That’s a total of approximately $6.2 million dollars shelved out. Although $150 isn’t a chunk of change to quit your job over, it’s still pretty cool for those die-hard LOST fan friends out there to think about. Maybe you can start a tiki bar in your garage with your winnings. Or grab a bucket of fried chicken and toast to Hurley. Both sound like awesome ideas to me.

  2. To clear the record, the Ephrata WA winner played the birthdays of himself and his wife on two tickets, one with hers first and one with hers last.

    The amazing thing is that both tickets won — $150 on her birthday last, $190 million on her birthday first. It’s actually two trillion to one odds that both tickets would win money, which is more impressive than a 66% match to the Hurley numbers (for me at least).

    As for the second $190 million ticket nobody yet knows who bought it, but it may have been a 25-year-old blonde yoga instructor who thinks I look dreamy in a Speedo. Call me baby.
