Fans of the popular TV show LOST will be very familiar with 6 special numbers. PlayHugeLottos.com investigates these mysterious ‘Lost’ lottery numbers a little further.
4 * 8 * 15 * 16 * 23 * 42
The numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 recur throughout the six seasons of LOST. They are perhaps most commonly remembered as the numbers that the character Hurley plays and wins on the Mega Lotto Jackpot (a fictional version of the popular American Mega Millions lottery).
But these numbers appear further throughout the show...
Appearances Of The Lost Lottery Numbers
Not simply an auspicious set of lottery numbers these digits appeared throughout the six seasons of Lost, both together and individually. This may seem extreme but fans of the show will not be surprised when they remember this sequence was depicted as the coefficient in an equation that predicted mankind’s extinction.
Here are some other places where the numbers showed up:
• The sequence of numbers was the serial code of a hatch for a station on the Island
• The numbers appeared in a lighthouse that was used to observe certain characters, with each number correlating to a specific character
• Many characters found that the numbers brought them bad luck, with some characters even ending up in an asylum because of them
• After winning the lottery, Hurley rides past 6 players of a girls' soccer team in the airport, each uniform has one of the Numbers on the back.
• When Hurley's car breaks down the speedometer reading (in km/h) goes from 16 to 15 to 8 to 4. The dashboard displayed a temperature of 23 degrees Celsius and 42 km on the car’s odometer.
• One of the characters has 4815162342 as their court case number
• The flight number of the plane that crashed onto the island was 815
