Next time you take out Chinese food, open up those fortune cookies and make note of those lucky numbers. Seems they're luckier than we give them credit for. In fact they've helped lots of people win the lottery over the years!
A company that manufactures and markets fortune cookies called OpenFortune did a survey about the lucky numbers inside fortune cookies to see just how lucky they are when it comes to lottery wins. They found that between 2004 and 2021 they helped create at least 146 lottery winners in 40 different states! And all tolled they helped people win their share of $406 million!
One person in North Carolina won half a million bucks playing Powerball back in February using numbers from his Chinese food order, so it's worth a shot.
South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee saw the most winners, and these were found to be the “luckiest” numbers, 4, 14, 15, 22, 26, and 28.
So with those words of inspiration on that little slip of paper may come some luck!
