Using a Lab Ray Fortune Cookie
Like the NC Item Fortune Cookies, the Lab Ray Fortune Cookie(s) you have bought will be placed into your inventory. Click on the fortune cookie in your inventory to use it.
Remember the Lab Ray Fortune Cookie can only be used on your MAIN account.
NOTE: According to the Neopets Editorial, if your only Lab Ray is located on a side account, then you may use your lab ray fortune cookie on your side account. If you have access to the Lab Ray on your main account, then your cookie must be used there. This information can be found in editorial #565.
When you select the option to 'Open Fortune Cookie', you will find out how many extra lab zaps you will receive for the next 7 days. This could be anywhere from one extra zap to three extra zaps.
When you open the Lab Ray Fortune Cookie, your extra lab zaps will be automatically applied for the next 7 days so don't open the cookie if you do not wish to have extra lab zaps that day/week.
Once you have opened your Lab Ray Fortune Cookie, your Lab Ray will look a little different. There will be a banner that tells you how many extra lab zaps you have per day, and how much longer your Fortune Cookie will last. You can not open
another Lab Ray Fortune Cookie until the time on your current one has run out.

Buying a Fortune Cookie
The Fortune Cookies that are available for purchase can be seen on Noda's Menu Board.
If the Fortune Cookie that you wanted to buy is currently sold out, just check back later, Noda will release more when he makes a new batch!
Using a NC Item Fortune Cookie
The fortune cookie(s) you have bought will be placed into your inventory. Click on the fortune cookie in your inventory to use it.
Choose the 'Open Fortune Cookie' option from the drop-down menu to see what item is inside your fortune cookie and how many Neofriends (from 1 to 4) you will be able to additionally send your item to.
**WARNING** According to the official FAQ (which can also be found at the bottom of this page), NC Item Fortune Cookies are not supposed to be able to be sent to other users in a NC gift box. However, currently you are able to do so.
Users have found when sending the unopened Fortune Cookie to another account with a gift box, the item inside and the number of the item (how many Neofriends you can send it to) may change.
For example, on your account your Fortune Cookie may have a Starry Night Wig in it and the ability to additionally send
this to 3 Neofriends, but when you send the Fortune Cookie to another account in a gift box, the same Fortune Cookie may now have a Galaxies Beyond Background and the ability to send to 2 Neofriends.
Click 'Choose Neofriends Now!'. You will need to send all of your item duplicates at one time. If you are not sure who else you wish to send your item to or do not want to send your item at this time,
simply close the pop-up screen. Your fortune cookie will remain unopened in your inventory until you are ready to use it. The item inside your fortune cookie will also be the same item when you open it again.
In the drop-down menu here, you are able to pick the Neofriends you wish to send your item to (no gift box needed!). You do not need to just pick from the list of your current Neofriends (which is what the drop-down menu will show you).
You can also type or paste a username into the box directly below. You can even type your own username into this box and thus send the item to yourself (so that you get 2 or more of the item)!
This step also involves account security. To make sure you are the person sending this item (and not someone else who got into your account),
you have to fill in your password and if you've got the option activated, your PIN too.
If you want to enable PIN protection, you can do this by going to the PIN Preferences page,
and checking the 'Starry NC Fortune Cookie' option.
The item appears automatically in your (and your friends) inventory. There is nothing to open or accept like with regular gift boxes or grams. You will, however, get a neomail notification when you receive a Fortune Cookie item or when your friends have received the Fortune Cookie items that you sent them.
