Man wins $2 million lotto jackpot after playing random Chinese fortune cookie numbers

Claude Guezodje said he has been playing the same numbers on Mega Millions for almost five years but decided to make a change.

“Those numbers were from a Chinese fortune cookie and random numbers I picked for myself,” Guezodje said. “I just liked those numbers and put them together.”

Guezodje is a highway construction worker and stopped with his crew at a convenience store in Gastonia to pick up a few things before heading to a project. That’s when he bought his winning ticket.

He was one of two players across the nation who won $2 million in the drawing April 21.

“The first thing I’ll do is pay off my car and try to find a small house – nothing crazy,” Guezodje said. “And then, of course, I want to help my family back home.”
