A couple are celebrating their third lotto win after scooping an $8.1 million (€7.6m) jackpot.

Douglas and Barbara Fink, from Edmonton, Canada, have won the lotto twice before but their latest jackpot is the most they've ever won.

In 1989, Mr Fink won a $128,000 (€120,227) win with four friends, and in 2010 the couple won a $100,000 (€93,927) prize.

Mrs Fink was checking her lotto numbers when noticed the couple had won.

The couple plan on buying a new house and hope to ensure their kids and grandchildren are looked after.
