May God continue to give us his blessing – A 75-year-old New York woman found her wealth in a cookie.

The retired Bronx- New Yorker resident bought the lottery ticket after dining at a Chinese restaurant.
Emma Duvoll who is a retired deli owner collected her winnings on Thursday, said she kept her fortune cookie slip when she and her sons picked up food from Sammy's Noodle Shop & Grill in Greenwich Village and she used the numbers from the slip when she bought a lottery ticket from Hanneford's grocery store.
