NEW YORK (AP) — A 75-year-old New York woman found her fortune in a cookie.
Emma Duvoll won $2 million in a recent Powerball drawing after playing the numbers found in her fortune cookie.
The retired Bronx resident bought the lottery ticket after dining at a Chinese restaurant in Greenwich Village.
The Daily News reports that the owner of Sammy's Noodle Shop & Grill joked that maybe the waiters should get 20 percent of her winnings.
Duvoll, a retired deli owner, picked up her prize on Thursday. She purchased the ticket for the Feb. 1 drawing at the Hannaford Pharmacy in upstate Pine Bush.
She plans to invest her winnings and may splurge on a trip to Switzerland to see relatives.
