Playing the Mega Millions? Here Are Six Sets of Winning Lottery Numbers That Won in the Movies

Lottery Ticket movie

Look, everyone and their mother is going to be playing Hurley's numbers from LOST today for the chance to win $640 million in tonight's Mega Millions draw. (You know: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42.) Your friendly Movieline editors aren't necessarily endorsing the insane gamble that is the national lottery, but if you're going to throw your hat and your dollars into the ring with the rest of America by going on a last-minute ticket buying frenzy (get 'em by 7:45 pm tonight, California!), here are the winning numbers that nabbed the jackpot for Nic Cage and Bridget Fonda, Bow Wow, and a handful of other lucky folks on the big screen.

Lottery Ticket (2010)
Bow Wow and his grandma hit it big with a $375 million jackpot... with numbers from (what else?) a fortune cookie.

Winning numbers: 04 32 33 42 45 (21)

It Could Happen to You (1994)
Based on the true story of a cop who split a winning ticket as a tip with a local waitress. Lesson learned: Don't give lotto tickets as tips (or anyone with whom you don't want to share), maybe unless your waitress looks like Bridget Fonda.

Winning numbers: 06 12 16 26 64 08

Paycheck (2003)
"Reverse engineer" Ben Affleck saves the world from a future-telling device and gets his memory wiped, but not before leaving himself the winning numbers to a lottery jackpot.

Winning numbers: 17 44 04 26 37 40 and 22

Lucky Numbers (2000)
Weatherman John Travolta and his ditzy girlfriend Lisa Kudrow rig the lottery and then get her cousin Michael Moore to buy the winning ticket. I couldn't bring myself to watch the entire movie all over again just to confirm the numbers but these numbers are visible in the trailer, should you choose to use them.

Winning numbers: 22 70 16 9 27 07

Waking Ned Devine (1998)
It's worth noting that winning the lotto in the movies quite often leads to death, betrayal, and other assorted ills. Take Ned Devine, for instance, who dies -- happily, I suppose -- from joy when he hits the jackpot.

Winning numbers: 19 40 04 07 25 29

All About the Benjamins (2002)
If you play these numbers, you are required to buy your lottery ticket in the style of Mike Epps.

Winning numbers: 15 30 37 38 45 47

Remember, gambling can become addictive, your chances of winning are insanely slim, and Movieline makes no promises that these numbers will win you anything at all. But feel free to cut me in on your winnings if you hit the big time! Consider it a tip.

Good luck!

    I can not believe that voodoo has grown to the extend when you can use it to win lottery. I saw a comment online of a spell caster called LORD DIVA who helped me with a voodoo that make me win the powerball lottery of $85,000 he also told me that if i had go for the millions i would have win as well. But the problem was that you can only use the spell once, which means there is no second chance to play twice because it against voodoo said by the spiritual man. I was so grateful for this was something i never believe that it ever going to work but today i was able to pay my debts. It an amazing work this man is doing out there and i advice he keep on the good work for he is God sent to earth for the poor. The emails is lorddivalottovoodoo1@gmail.com
