Couple win lottery three times in one month

By Heather Saul

A husband and wife have been nicknamed the luckiest couple in the world after winning the lottery three times in one month.



Calvin and Zatera Spencer won two $1 million prizes and a $50,000 within the space of four weeks.


Their winning streak began on 12 March when they won £600,000 ($1 million) in the Powerball drawing, matching the first five numbers but missing the Powerball number.


The Portsmouth, Virginia-based couple struck lucky again on 26 March when Mr Spencer won $50,000(£30,000) in the Virginia Lottery's Pick 4 game with ten tickets that had the same winning combination of 6-6-6-6.


The next day, Mr and Mrs Spencer claimed another prize of £600,000 ($1 million) in the scratch-off game $100 Million Cash Extravaganza. Mr Spencer purchased the winning ticket after dropping his wife off to an appointment.


After claiming their latest winnings, Mr Spencer vowed to continue playing and said: "We're not finished yet."
