Smile and Say ‘Cheese’: This Couple Has Won the Lottery 3X in One Month!

Calvin and Zatera Spencer of Portsmouth, Virginia must be jumping for joy after winning the Virginia lottery three times in one month.

They’ve won $1 million in the March 12 Powerball drawing; $50,000 via 10 winning tickets in the Pick 4 game.

And it didn’t stop there.

Mr. Spencer bought another ticket, this time the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza Scratcher, after dropping his wife off at an appointment

He won the $1 million prize.

“Baby, we did it again!” he told his wife.

“I haven’t seen anything like it in my 12 years here,” lottery spokesman John Hagerty told The Virginian-Pilot. “People in the office couldn’t believe it was them when they showed up with the winning ticket.”

The $1 million prize in $100 Million Cash Extravaganza is an annuity, which means the Spencers had the choice of taking the full $1 million prize over 30 years or a one-time cash option of $681,000 before taxes.

They chose the cash option.

7-Eleven at 100 West 21st Street in Norfolk sold the winning ticket to Spencer and received a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery

“We’re not finished yet,” Spencer said as they claimed their latest prizes.

Wonder what the odds in this lottery is?
