Spooky jackpot!

Four of the six winning numbers in Tuesday's Mega Millions lottery should be very familiar to Lost fans: They matched the same numbers that haunted "cursed" castaway Hugo "Hurley" Reyes (played by Jorge Garcia), who won $114 million using 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.

In the real-life $355 million jackpot, the numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42 (the Mega Ball number).

Anyone who played Hurley's famous digits won about $150.

On ABC's hit, Hurley is plagued by both fortune and misfortune via those numbers throughout his life.

Tweeted show creator Damon Lindelof: "9,078 people played Hurley's numbers in the MegaMillions tonight, each winning $150."
