Portsmouth Couple Win $1M Powerball Prize

Calvin and Zatera Spencer won $1M Powerball prize on the March 12, 2014 draw. Calvin used to ask the clerk for a big winner every time he buys lottery ticket at the Barber's Tire & Auto. Now, he got his wish. His ticket was the only ticket in the nation to match the first five numbers in the March 12 draw. The winning numbers were 14, 15, 28, 37, 54 and the Powerball number which the Spencer couple missed was 10.

The Spencer couple tried to remain anonymous in claiming their prize but it was not possible in the state of Virginia. They were required to attend a mandatory press conference at the store they bought the ticket from to announce their winning. Sherri Posey, the store manager, had to be at the press conference also to receive the ceremonial check of $10,000 that the store is entitled to for selling the winning ticket.
