Fortune Cookie Prediction Leads to $1 Million Lottery Win

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-07_4b6de3e68d.jpgMassachusetts Lottery(SOUTHWICK, Mass.) -- Have you ever cracked open a fortune cookie and hoped to get a message – or numbers – that would change your life? William Johnson, a Southwick, Mass., resident, was having dinner with his wife last week when he opened his cookie and found this message: “You will soon come into a lot of gold.”

Feeling lucky, Johnson bought a $10 Massachusetts Millionaire Mania scratch-off ticket the following day. He held on to the ticket for a few days before scratching it, and when he did, he found himself $1 million richer.

Johnson collected his winnings on Monday. He chose the cash option, receiving a one-time, lump sum payment of $650,000, before taxes.

ABC News could not reach Johnson for comment on Tuesday, but according to the Massachusetts State Lottery, he and his wife plan to take their time deciding what to do with their good fortune. They are thinking of buying a lake house, the lottery said.

Johnson bought his ticket at Colonial News located in Feeding Hills. The store will receive a $10,000 commission on the sale.

There are two $3 million prizes and three $1 million prizes remaining in the Massachusetts Millionaire Mania instant game.

The overall odds of winning the game are about 1 in 3.5 million, according to the lottery’s website.
