New York, March 7: A great grandmother from Bronx won 2 million dollars after playing the fortune cookie lotto numbers.
75-year-old Emma Duvoll, who collected the big payout on Thursday, decided to use the numbers that came inside her dessert as she had read that it had paid off for others in the past, the New York Post reported.
The grandmother of eight and great-grandmother of one had earlier tried family birthdays and anniversaries but had no luck.
Her good fortune came from a Chinese food order that she and her sons ordered at Sammy's Noodle Shop and Grill in Greenwich Village.
Duvoll kept the fortune cookie slip, and played the numbers at a Hanneford's grocery store.
She hit the numbers 5, 12, 15, 27 and 38, but missed out on the Powerball, 7. Matching five numbers won 1 million dollars but as Duvoll shelled out an extra 1 dollar for the Power Play option, her payout increased to 2 million dollars. (ANI)
