A bunch of LOST fans hit the jackpot on the lottery this week by playing the infamous “LOST numbers.” Here’s the story:
Fans of “Lost” who played the famous lottery numbers from the hit series didn’t score huge bucks in Tuesday’s Mega Million jackpot, but 26,000 did take home $150 each, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Four of the six numbers selected in real $355 million lottery on Tuesday matched those picked by the character Hugo “Hurley” Reyes from “Lost” who won a $114 million fictional jackpot.
Tuesday’s winning Mega Millions numbers: 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42
Hurley’s winning numbers: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.
As for the big prize Tuesday, two winning tickets were sold, one in Idaho and one in Washington state. The as-yet-unidentified winners each earned $177.5 million.
And the actor who played Hurley on the show, Jorge Garcia, had this to say about the winning numbers on his blog today. You need to click the link because there’s a picture and it made me giggle.
Birds and fish dying all over the place, the LOST numbers starting to come up in the Lotto. If a smoke monster pops up somewhere, I’m outta here.
