NEW YORK - A woman in New York is $2 million richer thanks to a fortune cookie.- A woman in New York is $2 million richer thanks to a fortune cookie.

Emma Duvoll, 75, used the numbers she found inside a fortune cookie to pick the numbers on her Powerball ticket. Five of those numbers were a match. The new multi-millionaire from the Bronx said she probably isn't the first to try the cookie strategy.

Reporter: "Did you think it was whacky to do that?"

"No, I think some of the people had done that before," said Duvoll.

Reporter: "But have they won?"

"I don't know!" laughed Duvoll.

She says she'll invest most of her new fortune, and maybe use some to visit family in Switzerland.
