May the fortune be with you…

The No Sweat News desk had heard of this happening before but had no idea it was somewhat common . . .

The fortune cookie marketing company called “Open Fortune” just published a study of winning lottery numbers and corresponding lottery wins and the comparison is, quite frankly off the charts.

Here’s what they found.

Since 2004, at least 146 Americans have hit the lottery using numbers they got from FORTUNE COOKIES.  And 93% of them hit for $100,000 or more.

The 146 tickets won a total of $406 MILLION.  So that’s an average of around $2.8 million each.

Most states have at least one lottery winner who got their numbers from a fortune cookie.  But South Carolina ranks first with 15 winning tickets.  Then Pennsylvania with 13, and Tennessee with 12.

Open Fortune also revealed which fortune cookie numbers have been the LUCKIEST.

The six numbers associated with the most winners are:  4, 14, 15, 22, 26 and 28.
