'Good investment': Estero man wins $500K Powerball prize using numbers from fortune cookie
A Southwest Florida man making a move to North Carolina caught a big break in his new state. When Ernesto Sorzano, of Estero, recently picked up his favorite Chinese takeout order of fried rice and shrimp, he also got a fortune cookie with a set of lucky numbers. He played them on a Powerball ticket and ended up winning a half-million-dollar prize. Lucky numbers he used, provided on the fortune slip from his cookie, matched four of the white balls and the Powerball in the February 20th drawing, winning him $50,000 dollars. But because he bought a $3-dollar Power Play ticket, his prize jumped 10-fold to $500,000 dollars when the 10-times multiplier was drawn.
