LOST Numbers Make Winners of Thousands of Mega Millions Players

The big story of the day is that two tickets matched all six numbers in last night’s Mega Millions drawing, making the owners of both tickets eligible to split a $355 million jackpot. But LOST fans may rejoice in the fact that if you played Hurley’s numbers — 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 — in the Mega Millions sweepstakes, you’re in for a small prize as well, as are thousands of other people, many of whom we’re betting are LOST fans.

The winning numbers for the lottery were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47, and Mega Ball 42, eerily similar to the LOST numbers already; more than 25,000 people who correctly picked three of the regular numbers plus the Mega Ball number (for LOSTies, 4, 8, 15, and 42), are eligible for a $150 prize. It’s not Hurley’s $114 million Mega Lotto jackpot, but it also hopefully doesn’t come with all the weird unlucky paranormal stuff.
