How to win the lottery…more than once!
Winning the lottery takes an unbelievable amount of luck. With jackpots worth millions or even hundreds of millions of pounds the odds are slim although players have a much better shot at the smaller prizes. However it may surprise you to learn that there are a few people who have managed to win the lottery, not once but multiple times. The odds against winning the lottery multiple times seem unsurmountable yet this has not happened once, but several times, around the world. In fact, the past few months have seen a surge in multiple lotto winners. It is easy to put this down as simply being an extraordinary coincidence, but if we look back at lotto history we find several stories of winners who struck it big - more than once.
The lotto hat trick
Just recently something extraordinary happened to a US couple that made international news, dubbing them “the luckiest couple in the world”. The reason for this epithet? Calvin and Zatera Spencer from Portsmouth, Virginia, didn’t settle for less than a lotto hat-trick.
Their first win came on March 12, 2014 when the lucky pair took home $1 million on Powerball. Most people might be happy enjoying being millionaires but the Spencers kept on going. On March 26 the dynamic lotto duo scored again, taking home another $50,000. This would qualify them as a pretty lucky couple indeed. But even that wasn’t enough for the lottery lovers. The very next day they hit a third massive pay out – this time $681,000 on scratch cards.
But the couple doesn’t seem fazed by winning big three times in one month. When collecting his prize, Mr. Spencer had a simple message to the public: “We’re not done yet.”
In another instance of March madness a Canadian man won big on the Lotto 6/49 for the second time in his life, earning him $1 million. Although his name may suggest otherwise, Robert McPhail has had nothing but success playing the lotto. His first win was in 1992 when he was a part of a lotto syndicate which banked $571,157.
When he took home his second win, this time for £1 million, McPhail displayed the mind-set of a lotto champion, telling the media that “I always thought I would win again. I just didn’t know when. My family members keep rubbing me for good luck.”
Now the Canadian is planning a trip to the UK. Perhaps his luck will rub off on you?
