Weekdays 3p-7p

A man won the Power Ball just by playing numbers he got from a fortune cookie.

I guess it really is just random.

The fortune cookie is from his stepdaughter who got him it got a couple of years ago at the age of 6, according to USA Today. Jackson said he has played those same five numbers in Powerball and Mega Millions every week since.

The odds of choosing all six numbers correctly and winning the jackpot are about 1 in 292.2 million.

The lucky guy said he will be taking a portion of his winnings and donating them to the Wounded Warrior Project, Shriners Hospital for Children and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Good heart even after winning a HUGE sum of money.
