Florida resident Ernesto Sorzano won a $500,000 Powerball prize using numbers inside a fortune cookie included in his Chinese takeout.
Sorzano used the numbers on a $3 ticket he purchased in North Carolina. He called the takeout meal "a good investment."
"Unbelievable. I'm just super happy that my dreams came true," he said.
Sorzano is reportedly using his winnings – which totaled $353,751 after taxes – to purchase a home in Huntersville, NC.
