The brothers went to a 7-Eleven store in Riverdale a short time later and Diego, remembering the fortune cookie's message, borrowed some money from his brother to buy a $10 Power 8s scratch-off ticket.
"I have to credit my brother. He loaned me the money," Caceres said.
The ticket turned out to be a $100,000 top prize winner.
Caceres said he chose the Power 8s ticket because 8 was the number used by his favorite soccer player, Ricardo Kaka, when he played for Sao Paulo and Real Madrid.
He said he plans to share the money with his brother and they might use some of it to fund trips to visit relatives in Argentina, Guatemala and Italy. Caceres said they might also visit Spain to take in a soccer game.
