This fortune cookie lived up to its name.

Ernesto Sorzano’s Chinese-takeout dinner paid off big-time when he played the set of lucky numbers in his fortune cookie on a North Carolina Powerball ticket, according to UPI.

Sorzano said he used the numbers when buying a $3 power-play ticket — and they ended up matching four of the winning ones, landing him $500,000.

"This was a good investment," Sorzano said of his rice and shrimp dinner, plus dessert cookie.

"Unbelievable. I’m just super happy that my dreams came true," he said.
