Cookie's fortune: $2 million
NEW YORK -

A New York woman claims she earned her Powerball fortune thanks to a fortune cookie.

Emma Duvoll, 75, says she used the six numbers found inside a fortune cookie on her February Powerball ticket. Five of the six numbers matched the drawing.

"I think some people have done that before," Duvoll told WABC-TV.

Duvoll won $2 million during the drawing. She plans to invest some of her winnings and use some of it to visit her family in Switzerland.
