Mega Millions: The Lost connection

The first three winning Mega Millions lottery numbers match the first three numbers of Hurley's winning ticket on Lost. Read on for more about this incredible coincidence.

It looks like the winning Mega Millions lottery numbers could have been an amazing marketing coup for Lost had this been a year ago. Why? Because a few of the winning Mega Millions numbers are the same as Hurley's cursed ticket on the just-finished series.

The winning Mega Millions numbers were 4,8,15,25,47 with 42 as the Mega Ball number. Hurley's ticket read 4,8,15,16,23 and 42.

The lucky winners who matched the first three numbers walk away with a $150 wad of cash. The big winners – one in Washington state and one in Idaho – will split the mind-boggling $335 million prize.

Hurley's ticket on Lost was worth $114 million.
