Did You Know A Fortune Cookie Once Gave The Numbers For A $19 Million Lottery?

Alarm bells began ringing when 110 players managed to match 5 out of the 6 numbers with each player getting the final number wrong. Lottery officials suspected fraud.

Fortune Cookie Correct Lottery Numbers

However as they dwelled deeper into the investigation, they soon realised this unlikely situation was down to the contents of a fortune cookie. All 110 players got their numbers from a fortune cookie!

It turned out that all the fortune cookies in question were produced at the same factory.

The second placed winners received between $100,000 and $500,000 depending on their initial stake. Once calculated, the total for the 110 players came to $19 million!

Luckily the lottery kept a $25 million reserve in the event of ‘odd occurrences’ and this certainly was one.
