All that last minute waiting in line may have been worth it for someone. No sooner did the winning Powerball numbers for the mind-boggling $1.5 billion jackpot hit the airwaves, but a followup announcement soon arrived. The California lottery quickly tweeted that a winning ticket landed in their state.

One (unknown) lucky winner plucked up a ticket in Chino Hills, which happens to be the 6th highest income city in the United States. No joke. With a median household income of $97,065, it’s unlikely that anyone in Chino Hills suffered without winning the Powerball. Now someone in or around the city will know astronomical wealth after Wednesday night’s news. Isn’t that how it works? The rich getting richer and such.
