Then, the Virginia Beach couple bought an Extra Play scratcher ticket at the Rite Aid on Upton Drive — and won the $250,000 top prize.
The odds of winning the top prize in this game are 1 in 1,049,143, according to the lottery.
When asked to what they attribute their amazing streak of luck, Charles joked that it’s all because of “my wife’s lucky rabbit’s foot she carries around with her.”
