Woman uses fortune cookie numbers to strike it rich in Powerball

Posted: Updated:
BRONX, N.Y. - A woman in New York is $2 million richer all thanks to a fortune cookie.

Emma Duvoll, 75, is from the Bronx; she 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.
