Sorzano, who is in the process of moving to Huntersville, North Carolina, used the set of lucky numbers from the fortune cookie to purchase a North Carolina Powerball lottery ticket.
According to North Carolina lottery officials, Sorzano’s numbers matched four of the white balls, winning him $50,000, but they say that prize bolted to $500,000 because he bought a $3 power-play ticket.
According to lottery officials, the odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.
“This was a good investment,” Sorzano said.
Sorzano, who is from Estero, Florida, took home $353,751 after tax on Monday. The future North Carolina resident said he’s still in disbelief and will be using the money to purchase a home in Huntersville.
“Unbelievable,” Sorzano said. “I’m just super happy that my dreams came true.”
