Diego Caceres, 25, of Riverdale Maryland said a fortune cookie turned out to predict that he would be lucky and later won a $100,000 lottery jackpot.
Diego told Maryland Lottery officials he was eating lunch at a Chinese buffet with his brother, Domingo, when a fortune cookie informed him that it was his lucky day. The brothers then went to a nearby 7-Eleven store and remembering the fortune cookie's message, borrowed some money from his brother to buy a $10 Power 8s scratch-off ticket. The ticket turned out to be a $100,000 winner.
"I have to credit my brother. He loaned me the money," Caceres said. He said he chose the Power 8s ticket because 8 was the number used by his favorite soccer player, Ricardo Kaka, when he played for Sao Paulo and Real Madrid. Read more on the story here.
