Virginia Lottery

The third time was the lucky charm — along with the first and second times too — for a Virginia couple who won the lottery three times in one month.

Calvin and Zatera Spencer, of Portsmouth, Va., won their first lottery prize on March 12 when they won $1 million in a Powerball drawing.

Two weeks later, Calvin Spencer won $50,000 playing the Virginia Lottery Pick 4 game.

Spencer had purchased 10 tickets with the winning numbers of 6-6-6-6, giving him 10 prizes worth $5,000 each.

Just one day later, Spencer won another $1 million prize on a Virginia Lottery Scratcher $100 Million Cash Extravaganza ticket he purchased at a local 7-Eleven.

“Baby, we did it again,” Spencer said to his wife, according to Virginia Lottery officials.

Spencer and his wife will have even more chances to “do it again” because the $1 million prize the couple claimed is only the second prize won in the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza.  Lottery officials say three million dollar tickets remain unclaimed.

“We’re not finished yet,” Spencer said as he claimed his prize.

The Spencers, who could not be reached today by ABCNews.com, chose the one-time cash option of $681,000 before taxes for their $100 Million Cash Extravaganza win.
