75-Year-Old Woman Wins Lottery With Fortune Cookie Numbers

March 7, 2014 | Andy Cush

Emma Duvoll is luckier than you. The 75-year-old Bronx woman won $2 million in on Powerball this weekend, playing the numbers she found in a fortune cookie. “I was surprised, but pleased,” she told ABC. “I took some time contemplating what I will do with the money. I plan to invest most of it and maybe take a trip to Switzerland to visit family.”

It just goes to show you: sometimes dumb luck strikes in ways that are amusingly coincidental, but belie no actual significance! Good for Emma, though.
