Great story, love fortune cookies...Congrats to the Lucky Lady!

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

          I recall there were a large number of 2nd place winners years ago in Powerball, something like over 100.  The officials suspected foul play only to find out that 5 winning numbers were printed on thousands of fortune cookie inserts and many people played them.

          You can never discount fortune cookie lotto predictions...  Wink

          I remember that and I think it was in NY. 2nd place payout was quite a bit less(perhaps 100k) 

          Could you imagine if that happened these days, the total payout could easily exceed the jackpot!

            I always play them expecting not to win. I got 5 of 6 on the Florida Lotto one time.

              I usually don't get along with Swissmen but she looks like a nice lady.

              So I wish her the best.

              Swiss cheese is highly overrated though.

              And that's what usually starts the arguments.

              They just can't accept that fact.

              The Swiss are very hardheaded people.

              You don't get along with those ol switzerland people do you.  Those hard headed people that have a strong currency, low unemployment, low crime, strong private banking, highly educated, limited federal government, never invaded anyone, never been invaded, limited welfare state, balanced budget, strong gun rights, lots of liberty, and lots of gold.  Those ol stuburn swiss cheese people.  How could they.

              Of course your politicians over here who have butchered this countries middle class are acting like they are trying their best to start nuclear world war 3 with russia!  Alot of good a lottery win will do one of us here at lottery post when our bank account is big but our skin is frying because of nuclear fallout.  Lets all hope and pray smarter brains prevail. 

              The nerve of those mean ol swiss.

                I plays the numbers that come in my fortune cookie whenever i eat at the Chinese buffet, maybe i can win the big Jackpot.

                Two weeks ago I won one Megamillion number, 14 with another white ball number using Chinese fortune cookies that I pick up  at one of the dining halls where I work. I even ordered a packet of Chinese fortune cookies which I received a couple of weeks ago. After cracking the cookies, I take the fortune slips at home and enter them in my computer base. I baptized the the file I input the numbers in, "Chinalucky." In my opinion from experience, the numbers imprinted of the slips gotten from the fortune cookies stand a chance of winning something than those from astrologers and psychics. I have won a Mega ball or two, previously, using imprinted numbers on slips from Chinese fortune cookies. I am very optimistic that one I may win a lotto Jackpot or at least one of those big secondary lotto prizes using numbers from fortune cookies.

                  Do numbers from a Fortune Cookie qualify as a " Quick Pick?"

                   

                  I would call them "pre-selected" Quick Picks. Personally, I do not play Quick Picks from lotto machines, though I one day stumbled upon a Quick Pick number that had mysteriously been left on the shop's front desk. I thought I would win by playing those numbers from that Quick Pick on the presumption that a guardian angel had left that Quick Pick combination for me. As usual, I did not win playing those numbers. That is why in my case, the only "Quick Picks" I play are from fortune cookies, astrologers and psychics!!!

                        I think you should have kept those numbers and played them over and over for at least a month or so. these things can be quite myterious you know!!Banana

                            Strange story. She gets the numbers from Manhattan then plays them 2hrs away at a town in the middle of no where. Guessing she went to the nearby casino.

                            I think it's more likely she was visiting family or friends there.  The casino isn't THAT close to Pine Bush; Google Maps says Monticello is about a half hour drive from there.  And unless she was taking a heck of a long way around, it's out of the way as well.  Plus she could have just as easily played the numbers at the casino.

                              Swiss cheese isn't for everyone and it doesn't go with everything, but sometimes you just can't beat a good ham and Swiss on rye.  Mmm-MMM!  Banana
