Luckiest Couple Ever Wins Lottery 3 Times in a Month

What may just be the luckiest couple ever won the lottery three times in March— and one of their winnings was the result of the combination 6-6-6-6.

Calvin and Zatera Spencer of Portsmouth, Va. claimed their first $1 million prize on March 12 after winning a Powerball drawing. Next, Calvin’s lucky sixes resulted in a $50,000 prize from the Virginia Pick 4 lottery on March 26. One day later, the Spencers won $1 million from a Virginia Lottery Scratcher ticket.

The couple took home $681,000, before taxes, from that last win alone. “We’re not finished yet,” said the couple after redeeming their last prize, USA Today reports.
