Queens was a lucky charm for three people who, although didn’t win the jackpot during Wednesday’s Powerball drawing, still have one million reasons to be jumping with joy.

The trio — who have yet to be identified — individually won the second-place prize of $1 million, in which they had to match five numbers, not including the Powerball number, according to NBC.
