(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.
