Back in 2005, there was a record number of second prize winners from a Powerball drawing that produced 110 winners. Fortune Cookie Leads to Record Number of Powerball Winners

Also, there was a man that won $10 mil in Sept 2015 and claimed he played the numbers from his fortune cookies Florida man wins $10M lotto jackpot with fortune cookie numbers

Those people played the numbers from their fortune cookie.

Have you ever played your fortune cookie numbers?

Have you ever won using those numbers?

          Yes, I have but never won.

          The odd thing was after I played the numbers, I went back an hour later and bought another line.

            mikeintexas, You have used that line before in another thread. "I went back an hour later and bought another line". It is still funny, though! LOL

              Ever sine the 110 winners in 2005 that played the fortune cookie numbers the state lottery commissions and the MUSL have left fortune cookie slips with numbers - knowing those numbers won't hit - where the play slips are kept.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  You caught me!  I was wondering if anyone would remember that, leave it to you to do so.  You're pretty eagle-eyed even WITHOUT your glasses.Wink

                  I believe in recycling, esp. old jokes.  I also repeat old stories, but like my pop used to do about some of his coon dogs, the more years they'd been dead, the better they got.

                      Played and won but I broke even because the cookie cost a fortune!

                      Actually, I hit either the power ball or the mega ball I really don't remember which and got less than 5 bux.

                          What is a fortune cookie?

                          A fortune cookie is a crisp cookie usually made fromflour, sugar, vanilla, and sesame seed oil with a piece of paper, a "fortune", on which is an aphorism, or a vagueprophecy. The message inside may also include a  Chinese phrase with translation and/or a list of lucky numbers used by some as lottery numbers, some of which have become actual winning numbers. Fortune cookies are often served as a dessert in Chinese restaurants in the United States and some other countries, but are absent in China. The exact origin of fortune cookies is unclear, though various immigrant groups in California claim to have popularized them in the early 20th century.

                            Won't be long before someone wins a massive jackpot admitting they played fortune cookie numbers.  And than a  lawsuit by the company that produces the numbers saying they want half the jackpot because they picked the numbers.lol
