    Sounds interesting - can you explain what you mean?  (I don't watch that show.)

        There were a set of numbers on this TV show LOST  that one character used to win the lottery.  Every person that used that set of numbers to win something  (including the lottery) had horrible luck.

          There was a story in the news some months ago about PowerBall having an usual large number of 5+0 winners because many of them had gotten their numbers from a fortune cookie.  It seem the fortune cookie company was working on the cheap and put the same numbers in most of their cookies.  The story reported the company had upgraded to an automatic machine that would put different numbers in all their cookies in the future.

            I watch the show and recorded the numbers, I'm only tracking them now, so far no luck, but if anyone is interested the numbers were 4-8-15-16-23-42.  Good luck to anyone playing them.

              No I haven't. I guess I never thought of playing them.

                Ohio Super Lotto Plus (a 6/49 game) is ending this Saturday after nine years. This combination has matched 3+1 once and 3+0 seven times.  It may be a good time to play it before the game is replaced this Sunday.

                  There have been two USA Lottery Pick 6-style games that matched 5 out of 6 of those numbers in one drawing.  Want to know which two games, and on what dates?  Become a Platinum member, and you can use the most powerful lottery results search engine on the Internet!  Using it, I figured out the answer in 10 seconds.

                    I wonder how these numbers came up for 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42? Who won the 156 million dollars in that match? My dad and my married sister watches "Lost", but sometimes I have to tape for them. Todd, I can't afford to be a platinum member, so I have to stick as standard member and hope to be top 100 poster.

                      If those numbers had won, there would have been a lot of people sharing the jackpot. 

                       

                      """According to a Wisconsin Lottery spokeswoman, more than 840 people selected those numbers across five states during last week's Powerball drawing, including 266 in New Hampshire alone.

                      "A lot of people are playing those numbers," said Eva Robelia, spokeswoman for the Wisconsin Lottery. "There could be thousands of people who play the Lost numbers overall.""""

                          Well I guess it's a good thing you didn't because they didn't come up anyway. Plus with 800 or a 1000 or whatever people playing those numbers it would have suck if that had been the winning numbers. At least for the guy who won. lol.
