Maryland Man Wins $100K After Fortune Cookie Tells Him It's His Lucky Day

February 25, 2019

A man in Maryland won $100,000 this month after he purchased a lottery scratch-off ticket because the message inside a fortune cookie told him it was his lucky day. Diego Caceres was having lunch with his brother, Domingo, at a Chinese buffet on February 16 when he received the fortune-cookie message. The 25-year-old then borrowed $10 from his brother at a 7-Eleven a short time later to buy a Power 8s ticket that won him the cool, six-figure sum. "I have to credit my brother. He loaned me the money," Caceres said. He adds that he plans to split the money with his brother and that they might use the funds to visit relatives abroad and to go see a soccer game in Spain.
