    Meet the luckiest couple in the US


    HAVE you won the lottery more than three times in your life? How about thrice in a month?

    Lucky Americans Calvin and Zatera Spencer won more than US$2 million (S$2.5 million) in three separate draws last month, USA Today reported.

    The couple from Portsmouth, Virginia, first won US$1 million on March 12. Two weeks later, on March 26, Mr Spencer won US$50,000 in the Virginia Lottery's Pick 4 game, which is similar to Singapore's 4-D.

    He bought 10 tickets with the winning combination 6-6-6-6, and the top prize in the Pick 4 game is US$5,000, which means he won a total of US$50,000.

    The next day, he bought a Virginia Lottery Scratcher ticket for a US$100 Million Cash Extravaganza after dropping his wife off for an appointment, and won another US$1 million.

    "We're not finished yet," he said as they claimed their latest prize.
