3 Lotto Wins in one month?
I was stunned when I first read about the Virginia couple who had won lotto prizes three times in one month. It is just not fair. What are the odds of this happening to the same couple 3 times in less than 30 days?
Calvin and Zatera Spencer make me want to continue playing lotto. If they can do it, surely I can too.
Lotto Wins against ALL Odds are more than Possible!
John Hagerty, who is the Virginia Lottery spokesman, told the Los Angeles Times that, “I’ve been here for 12 years, and this is the first time I’ve seen someone win three major prizes within such a short period of time.”
When asked what the odds were of winning in the games that the couple won in, Hagerty provided the following statistics. The couple won 1 million US Dollars on the 12th of March on Powerball. The odds of winning, Hagerty said said, were 1 in 5,153,633. You have a better chance of being struck by lightning which is 1 in 3 million.
On March 26, the Spencers matched four numbers exactly in the Pick 4 game. Tickets with the winning combination, 6-6-6-6, earned $5,000. The Spencers had 10 tickets with that combination, for $50,000. The odds of matching those four numbers exactly, Hagerty said, were 1 in 10,000.
As if these wins were not enough they won again. On the 27th of March the couple won 1 Million US Dollars in the Cash Extravaganza. According to Hagerty the odds of them winning here were 1 in 836,000.
Most of us can pretty much be sure that we would never win the lottery. However, there are laws of improbability that are pretty powerful. Just look at what happened to this couple who I am too jealous of to be thrilled for. They won three times in one month – and that goes beyond all odds – if you have enough opportunities then even the most improbable of events is likely to occur.
At the end of the day, the couple got lucky. Chances of them ever winning again are basically ZERO. If they win again – I will eat my words.
