Emma Duvoll, 75, won a $2 million jackpot with numbers from a fortune cookie.
Guess that's why they call them "fortune" cookies.
A New York City woman won a $2 million Powerball prize with the numbers she found in a fortune cookie, lottery officials said Thursday.
Emma Duvoll, 75, of the Bronx matched five numbers in the Feb. 1 drawing and pumped up her payout by choosing the Power Play option.
"I was surprised, but pleased," Duvoll said in a statement.
"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."
