Couple Wins Lottery Three Times in One Month


PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WTKR) — Calvin and Zatera Spencer are having an amazing month.

First, they won $1 million in the March 12 Powerball drawing. Then on March 26, Calvin won $50,000 with 10 winning tickets in the Virginia Lottery’s Pick 4 game.

But it doesn’t stop there.

The next day, shortly after dropping his wife off for an appointment, Calvin bought a Virginia Lottery Scratcher ticket – the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza – and won the $1 million prize.

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

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. He bought the winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 100 West 21st Street in Norfolk. The store received a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

The $50,000 win came when the combination 6-6-6-6 was drawn in the March 26 Pick 4 day drawing. Since that’s a popular combination, the Virginia Lottery paid out a total of $6 million to winners for that drawing.

Calvin had 10 tickets with 6-6-6-6. The top prize in Pick 4 is $5,000, which means he won a total of $50,000.

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

The $100 Million Cash Extravaganza features prizes ranging from $20 up to $4 million.

The $1 million prize that the Spencers won is actually the second prize. As the name suggests, the game began with a total of $100 million in prizes available.

Calvin is the first $1 million winner to claim, which means three million-dollar tickets remain unclaimed.

    thats just something i dream about but i cant even afford to buy the ticket so i guess i just keep dreaming i know if i had that money i could get the wheel chair van i need a new home built for the handicap and Jayden wouldnt want for nothing even though he cant even ask for the first thing I would give him the world and all the medical treatment i could pay for just to make sure he would get a little better as his life goes on.. so yes it is a dream but its my dream.
