Bingo is such a popular game that it is no wonder it often appears in TV and film as either part of the plot or as a little side piece that shows the viewer something more about the character or where they live. Knowing some of these more famous online bingo numbers can be genuinely useful if you are in control of picking your own numbers when you’re playing (which isn’t always the case, but can be in some games). Read on to find out what some of the lucky bingo numbers from films and TV are, so you always have a set of digits ready if you need them.
Lost was a hugely popular and very confusing TV show in the early 2000s that saw a group of people survive a plane crash only to be washed up on a deserted island. Well, ‘deserted’ might not be quite the right word, but we don’t want to give too much away…
One of the characters, Hurley, had just won the lottery before the crash, and although his fate might not be seen as entirely lucky, for fans of this twisty, turny show, they are great numbers to pick. These numbers are: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42.
The Lottery Ticket
In a film with the name ‘The Lottery Ticket’ it’s likely you’re going to come up with at least one set of lucky numbers you can then use in your real life. In this film, Kevin Carson (played by Bow Wow), played the lottery for his grandmother. The numbers he used came from a fortune cookie, and they gave Kevin and his grandma a win of $375 million. Of course, the film then tumbles into comedy and farce as various baddies try to get their hands on the ticket, so whatever you do, if you use the numbers 4, 21, 32, 33, 42, and 45 and win a fortune, keep that ticket nice and safe until you can cash it in.
It Could Happen To You
Movies makers must know just how many people dream of winning the lottery or a big bingo game, which is why this dream comes true for a variety of different people in a variety of different movies. In It Could Happen To You, a police officer and a waitress meet while she is serving him in a diner. Because the officer doesn’t have enough cash to leave her a tip (obviously this was before the days of contactless payments), he promises her that, should he win the lottery, she can have half.
Well, guess what? He wins, and he keeps his promise, but his wife isn’t overly happy about the idea… Those numbers were 6, 8, 12, 16, 26, and 64.
Lucky Numbers is a classic starring John Travolta as a weather forecaster who is spiralling deeper and deeper into debt. This goes even more wrong when a scam he is involved with fails badly. The only thing left for him to do is to try to rig the lottery, obviously. It just makes sense! In order to prevent bankruptcy, he needs the numbers 7, 9, 16, 22, 27 and 70 to come up.
