Fortune cookies nets woman Powerball $2M

NEW YORK (WABC/CNN) — A woman in New York is two-million dollars richer — thanks to a fortune cookie.

75-year-old Emma Duvoll from the Bronx used the numbers she found inside a fortune cookie to pick the numbers on her Powerball ticket.

Five of those numbers were a match.

The new multi-millionaire said she probably isn’t the first to try the cookie strategy.

Duvoll says she’ll invest most of her new fortune, and maybe use some to visit family in Switzerland.
