Never played a fortune cookie number but, One time I was walking to the store to play my numbers and a 2 week old lottery ticket blew up against my leg...I looked up into the sky and asked if this was the sign I had been waiting for.....well you just know I had to play it.....not one number came up....after I checked the ticket, I looked up into the sky, smiled, and said "that was a pretty good joke."
I was slapped in the face with something that could of been like a fortune cookie.On 1/19/06 my daughter picked up a ticket from in front of my shop it had 235 on it for mid day and i didn't play it back for eve and it fell 325 now that was showed to me.
The last time I got a fortune cookie the fortune said "play the lottery today" I played and the numbers did not come, up but when I look back at the history file, the numbers had showed up 2 weeks before.... I played them for Mega Millions.... oh well maybe next time...
fja- Your story is delighting! Glad you kept your humour about the scenario.
Thus far I have played- fortune cookies, expiration dates from milk cartons, License plates, check number from paying a bill, my kids birthdates, my drivers license number, my social security number, and my street address. My siblings birthdates, my anniversary and my employers address. Beleive it or not I've hit *straight bets* and *combos* from these. The resources are there its a matter of how they hit :)
Yes, come to think of it I have played a few of those fortune cookie numbers. I won once of the few times I've done it. I think it was 20 dollars that I won (because of the power play option). I still do play then now and then, but they really have to be a set of numbers that catches my eye at that time. It's fun to try something out of the ordinary once in a while.
