Last night I was watching an episode from Season 3 of "Fringe", titled "6995 kHz", about strange happenings amongst some ham radio operators and a fascination with numbers.  Well, anything involving numbers will catch my attention, for various reasons, and I was quick to take note of these particular "numbers of significance" in the story, as Olivia lists to Peter:

12 - 34 - 17 - 9 - 15 - 8 - 42

Has anyone else here seen this episode?  I think I have that list right, but I probably need to check again.

Now I have to wonder if anyone who watched the episode played the numbers on a lottery game and won something significant.  Yes, for CURIOSITY'S SAKE, I do have to wonder.  Because that is just the nerd in me.

I remember a few years ago playing a string of numbers on the Wild Card game that I'd been feeling very strong about.  I won 4 out of 5 --- just a hair away from JACKPOT! --- and when I told some friends about it, somebody said, "Hey, do you know those are mostly the same numbers from LOST?"

Well, it had been a long time since I'd watched LOST, but he was right -- they were almost the same string of "mystery numbers" in that show.

So, just wondering if anyone here has played/won any TV/movie numbers.

    Once, caught an episode of a Tyler Perry show late one night and it was an episode where someone was

    playing the lotto. They were told not to play and their numbers came up, I wrote down the numbers.

    So I did give it a shot but no win for me.

      My favorite lottery television series episode was from the series Monk the numbers were:  12, 15, 25, 33, 54, 62.  (2008-ish I believe)

      And Monk caught the 'hooligans' painting the lottery balls with magnetic paint to rig the draws. ... too bad neither MM nor PB go up to 62 or I would use them!

        Bummer you didn't win.  Have you ever thought of how bad that would feel to not play your personal numbers and they came up big-jackpot style?  I get irritated enough when I fail to play something on Pick 3 and it comes up.  Like today, that happened.  I was short on cash so I decided not to play 458, like I did yesterday, and THERE IT WAS today..... ugggghh.  There went my 80 bucks.  Unhappy

          Oh, The Monk.  I have watched that only a few times. 

          Hey, since there are 6 numbers there and 62 wouldn't work, what about playing that as 26 Megaball?  Sometimes I turn numbers around.

          I got some numbers in a dream last weekend (blogged about it) but was only able to remember 3 of 'em.  They did not come up that night and I've since just forgotten all about it til now.  That would be pretty awesome to get some numbers in a dream and actually have them come in!  Well, if you got the ticket, anyway.  Otherwise, that would suck.  hehe

            GGStarlings,

            There has been at least one discussion here about the lottery numbers from Lost.

            In a few other threads it has gone beyond just sets of lottey numbers from movies or TV - apartment numbers, house numbers, etc....

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42 the winning MM #s

              Mega Millions said 25,587 tickets matched three of the winning numbers, plus the bonus number.

              Anyone who played the "Lost" numbers would have won $150 per ticket.

                      Wow Dallas!  I could not have pulled the exact date or season number outa my beleagured (sp?) brain if you had paid me!  Monk always made me smile and was a fabulous way to herald in the weekend!

                        There was another lottery-related Monk episode. It was called "Mr. Monk and the Paperboy." It first aired on 01-16-2004.

                        The numbers were 8-12-17-26-34-45. Kevin, a man who lived in the same apartment building as Monk, played these numbers in the lottery every week. These were his old address numbers. An employee there named Vicky knew this. She saw that he had won, so she seduced him so that he would never learn. Then, she attempted to kill him by locking him in his car on railroad tracks when a train was coming. The plan didn't work-- Monk and Sharona diverted the train.

                        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                          Last night on The Simpsons, there was a cat from this made-up TV show called "Stranded", and the number on its collar was 815.

                          815 did not win anywhere last night.
