A man from North Carolina won a jackpot in the lottery using the numbers he got from a fortune cookie.

According to news agency United Press International, he collected a $500,000 Powerball prize.

Ernesto Sorzano shared that he copied the winning numbers from a fortune cookie that came with his recent Chinese take-out.

In a recent interview, Sorzano said the shrimp and fried rice meal “was a good investment.”

He now prepares to relocate to Huntersville permanently and buy a house using his winnings.

“Unbelievable. I’m just super happy that my dreams came true,” Sorzano said of his win.

Meanwhile, a man’s craving for a sandwich led to his buying the Powerball ticket that earned him a $150,000 prize.

According to various news reports online, Jodie Harris, of Hampton said he stopped at a Wawa store.

While waiting for his sandwich, he used a Virginia Lottery Game Machine there to buy Powerball tickets.

Much to his surprise, Harris later found out that he matched four numbers and the Powerball number in the drawing.

With that, he collected a $150,000 jackpot, which he plans to use to help out relatives and for his retirement.
