A Washington state man followed the advice inside a fortune cookie and won a $125,000 lottery jackpot.
The Vancouver resident told Washington state lottery officials that he found three fortunes inside a single cookie recently and decided to follow the advice printed on two of them, which said: “Buy a ticket. All your financial troubles will soon be solved.”
The man said he bought a Hit 5 ticket in Vancouver and initially thought he’d won $125, but later discovered it was actually $125,000.
He said he planned to celebrate his win by spending some of the money on a sushi dinner.
