English term or phrase:numbers
Can "numbers" also mean something like "Los" or "Lotterielos"? I came across a text about gambling in which somebody was upset because it was the third time his number was picked. When another person asked him why he was upset, he said, "I lost a number."
In the same text there was a guy who did "number pick-ups" for an illegal nightclub, i.e. he picked up the numbers at this nightclub and brought them to another place.
