NEW YORK (March 7, 2014) Emma Duvoll, 75, won $2 million in a recent Powerball drawing after playing the numbers that she found in her fortune cookie.
The retired Bronx resident bought the lottery ticket after dining at a Chinese restaurant in Greenwich Village.
The Daily News reported that the owner of Sammy's Noodle Shop & Grill joked that maybe the waiters should get 20 percent of her winnings.
Duvoll, a retired deli owner, picked up her prize on Thursday.
She purchased the ticket for the Feb. 1 drawing at the Hannaford Pharmacy in upstate Pine Bush.
She said she plans to invest her winnings, but may splurge on a trip to Switzerland to see relatives.
