Chino Hills? Powerball frenzy turns to (and on) winning town

Chino Hills?

That's the question many were asking after it was revealed someone who bought a Powerball a ticket in the Inland Empire suburb won the record $1.5-billion jackpot. Where exactly? The 7-Eleven at 4092 Chino Hills Parkway.

Chino Hills is an upscale community of about 80,000 residents in western San Bernardino County. The average household income is $96,497, according to the U.S. census. That's $20,000 more than the county average.

Of course, Chino Hills became a subject of much discussion on social media both by the curious and curiously sore losers

The winning numbers in Wednesday’s record-setting Powerball drawing were: 8, 27, 34, 4, 19 and the Powerball number, 10.
