Floridians Look to Cash on Lucky Flight Number

January 21st, 2009 by flanews

1549 has already been a lucky number for 155 airplane passengers and now Floridians are looking for lady luck with the four digits.

Since US Air Flight 1549 landed in the Hudson River last week, The Florida lottery has seen a jump in ticket sales with the number 1549. The numbers have never won in that order, although the combination of numbers has won 12 times. If someone were to pick the winning combination, they could win up to $5,000. Spokeswomen for the Florida lottery Jackie Barrios said people often use dates and events to pick numbers.

If there is anything unusual relating with numbers, people tend to play those numbers. For example on July 7, 2007 a lot of people played 7-7-7 or 7-7-0-7. They do different combinations with those particular numbers. Now that there has been this crash, people are playing that 1549, said Barrios.

Although the lotto has sold a lot 1549 tickets, the number hasnt reached the mandatory cut off point. The lottery stops selling a particular Play 4 combination when a winning payout would reach five million.
