(Newser) – An Arkansas man won $1 million in a scratch-card lottery this weekend; the next day, his wife won $50,000. "I just couldn't believe it. It's not possible," says Steve Weaver. When they prepared to claim the cash, "I thought we were going to have to go do a lie detector test, and put our hand on the Bible," Weaver tells Fox 16. Together, Steve and Terri's tickets cost $30, Arkansas Matters reports. The couple isn't planning anything rash with their newfound $1,050,000; they'll invest it, keep working, and keep playing the lottery, they say. (Read more lottery stories.)
