While the winners of Tuesday's jackpot are still a mystery, the dreams of hopeful players are filled with optimism, which is better than the fate of the Hugo Reyes character who suffered a string of bad luck after winning the lottery on "Lost."
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes (played by actor Jorge Garcia) may have been the unluckiest lottery winner on the ABC television series "Lost" but had you played his numbers in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing, you would have won $150.
The numbers drawn in the $355 million jackpot were: 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and mega ball number 42.
The numbers Reyes used to win $156 million were: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42, four out of the six numbers picked on Tuesday.
The numbers played a pivotal role throughout the series; from Reyes' personal tragedies like the death of his grandfather to the appearances on the island during crucial turning points in the storyline.
