Man wins lottery day after fortune cookie prediction


A man won the lottery in the US the day after a fortune cookie predicted he would.

James Scoles from North Pole, Alaska, and two of his friends scooped $1 million (R9 million) in the lottery after matching five numbers just a day after he opened a fortune cookie which contained the message: "You're going to win the lottery."

Following the win, James (56) has split the pot equally with his two friends.

"I was just as tickled for them as I was for myself,” he said.

"We just had a verbal agreement and I felt like that had to be honoured."
