Hurley's Numbers From 'Lost' Prove Lucky In Mega Millions Lottery

Newsday reports there are two winning Mega Millions jackpot tickets in last night's $355 million dollar lottery drawing: one from Idaho and one from Washington State. They'll split the second largest grand prize the game's ever had. Isn't that exciting? Sure - if you're not stuck on the 'Lost' island.

The winning numbers are 4, 8, 15, 25, 47. and the Mega Ball number is 42.

Some of these numbers were used by Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes in the ABC drama, Lost in winning his jackpot, but as Losties know, the numbers control much, much more than just money. Still CNN says if you played Hurley's numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42), you still won $150.

Hurley wins the lottery.


Fellow Losties: I always preferred Hurley as Jacob's successor, but unless Lapidus is piloting, I'm still sitting next to Jack on the plane, even if I have to move Rose or maybe Bernard (in the original) or Desmond (in the flash-sideways). Non-Losties: we're still annoying.
