A US couple is averaging more than a million dollars a week in lottery winnings.

The Virginia Lottery says Calvin and Zatera Spencer, of Portsmouth, claimed their latest prize last week - a one million US dollar (£600,000) win in the scratch-off game 100 Million Cash Extravaganza.

The streak started when the Spencers won a million in the March 12 Powerball draw, matching the first five numbers but missing the Powerball number.

The couple struck again on March 26 when Mr Spencer won 50,000 dollars (£30,000) in the Virginia Lottery's Pick 4 game with 10 tickets that had the same winning combination of 6-6-6-6.

The next day, he bought the winning Cash Extravaganza ticket.

After claiming the latest winnings, Mr Spencer said: "We're not finished yet."
