View Comments ()



    One Virginia couple is having the best month ever.

    Virginia Lottery officials say Calvin and Zatera Spencer of Portsmouth won the lottery three times in two weeks, taking home more than $2 million.

    The Spencers won their first $1 million in the March 12 Powerball drawing. Then, on March 26, Calvin picked up 10 Pick 4 tickets with the combination 6-6-6-6. The popular combination resulted in a $6 million payout, and with his 10 tickets, Calvin took home $50,000.

    The next day, Calvin dropped his wife off at an appointment and stopped by a 7-Eleven store in Norfolk, where he bought a lottery scratcher.

    “Baby, we did it again!” he told his wife after winning that $1 million prize.

    The Spencers chose to take home the cash option of $681,000 before taxes.

    And Calvin says they're "not finished yet."
