Howdy All,

Do we have any fans of the show "Lost" here. If so, I was curious if anyone has ever played the numbers they have on the show as being the cursed numbers. 4-8-15-16-23-42

You know, if you played them and they came in they would be cursed because you would have to share the pot with all the people who saw the show too. LOL...

A jackpot split by hundreds of people. I know, I would be cursing the numbers. Wink

Just wondering if you have ever thought about it or have played them before,

Bryan  :)

      I would be afraid to bet them; I would be afraid of flying from that day forward.  Especially any where over the Pacific Ocean.  If one part can come true, another part can also.

      If you reversed the numbers, would you be afraid of flying over the Atlantic?

      Cheers

        Probably some insider lottery 'marketing scheme' that millions bit on, albeit very stupidly.

          It is all about the marketing scheme!  Look in the mirror.  You fall for a scheme everytime you place a bet.  So do I, and so does everyone on LP.  We're all fish, blinded by the shiney lure.

          Cheers

              Maybe so, but I am talking actually playing those specific numbers simply because they were posted on TV. That I would never do, being I do not want to share my jackpot with half the nation. I would love to know how many actually played them numbers, and how much money was made and "lost."

                  Look how many people made out like a bandit when the Fortune Cookie numbers came in. That situation had like 100 people who won $100,000 each in Powerball not so long back...I did look at the MO Lottery archives to see if those numbers had ever come in before here in MO and the most was 4 out of 6 one times over the years.

                  I bet you are right though, I bet they get played alot.

                  Later,

                  Bryan  :)

                    You're thinking jackpot.  What about, if they hit 5+0 on a Powerball rolldown?  Like the last one?  Then everyone with the numbers would cleanup; not a split.

                    Cheers
