For sheer good luck this couple is hard to beat

Our report on the three-time lottery winner from Florida recently sparked a one-upmanship story from a reader, who sent us an Associated Press report about a West Virginia woman who has enjoyed less in prizes but more in wins.

Brenda Bailey (60) of South Charleston claimed her ninth West Virginia Lottery prize, last week, picking up $7,000 in the Gem 7s instant game.

The win brings her total winnings since last September to $159,000 from five instant tickets - a total $165,800 in prizes from instant and online games since 2000.

She's not the only lucky one in the family. Her husband Richard claimed a $6,000 instant game prize in January and a $10,000 prize last September.
