Some people put a lot of stock into what fortune cookies say, and others enjoy the cookie and forget what the fortune says before the last bite. The former, may actually hold the key to winning the huge Powerball jackpot!
The jackpot, which is now well over half a billion dollars, may be hiding at your local Asian food restaurant inside a fortune cookie.
At least according to a new study from FiveThirtyEight.com. They say that if you played those numbers inside the cookies between 1997 and 2017, you would have won $4.4 million on $4.2 million invested.
If you only used quick pick numbers randomly generated by the lotto machines, you would have won only $1.7 million. In other words, you would have lost $2.5 million.
Kung Pao chicken, anyone?
