June 11 (UPI) -- A Virginia woman who found a fortune cookie in her house used the numbers from the slip of paper inside to win a $100,000 lottery jackpot.

Loraine Simon Henry told Virginia Lottery officials the numbers she played in the May 26 Cash 5 drawing, 3-4-16-24-26, came from the slip of paper inside a fortune cookie she found while dusting her home.

The numbers earned her a $100,000 top prize.

"This is unbelievable!" the lucky winner said.

Henry, who bought the ticket from City Mart in Stafford, said she plans to use her winnings to pay bills and possibly go on a cruise.
