LOST Fans Who Played Hurley’s Numbers in the New York Mega Millions Lottery Win $150

     January 5, 2011


The numbers may be cursed, but “4 8 15 16 23 42” can apparently still net you some lottery money.  Fans of Lost know the sequence of numbers as the ones Hugo “Hurley” Reyes (Jorge Garcia) used to play the lotto and won $156 million with.  Unfortunately, a string of unfortunate incidents began to follow Hurley as a result with the numbers almost seeming to taunt him.  But Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof tweets that 9,078 Lost nerds chose to play the numbers in the New York Mega Millions lottery and throw caution to the wind.  Those lucky (?) folks ended up winning $150 as a result as last night’s numbers were 4-8-15-25-47 with a mega ball of 42.  I imagine this means the winners will be beset with minor inconveniences like not being able to find their keys or being slightly late to get McDonald’s breakfast.  However, I would recommend the winners avoid air travel for at least the next few weeks.
