(Newser) – Hurley’s lucky/unlucky number sequence from Lost was pretty lucky last night for the nearly 10,000 people who played it in the lottery. The winning sequence (4 8 15 25 47 42) included four of those infamous Lost numbers (4 8 15 16 23 42), and in the right order to boot, Celebuzz reports. PopEater notes that Lost show-runner Damon Lindelof tweeted, “9,078 people played Hurley's numbers in the Mega Millions tonight, each winning $150.” Click to see a video montage of the numbers showing up in Lost—including the time Hurley won the lottery with them.

It was almost worth not winning the lottery not having to watch Lost after three, actually two and a quarter times. Sorry Lost fans, but the title fits you, oh so well. Pass the Pepto, please.
