Fortune Cookies Work Their Lotto Magic Again

Earlier this month a 75-year-old US Powerball player from New York won $2 million using the numbers she found inside a fortune cookie. It has now emerged that a Mega-Millions player also attributes her lottery success to fortune cookie numbers.

Merces Goncalves, from Jose, California, had been using her fortune cookie numbers for such a long time her husband was always joking the amount of money she spent on lotto tickets could fund an annual trip to Portugal, but he was forced to agree the money had been well spent when Goncalves won $400,000 in the March 4, Mega Millions drawing.

The Goncalves  are now busy planning the Hawaiian honeymoon they could not afford when they got married 52 years ago.
