Powerball is known for its huge jackpots, including the more than a half-billion-dollar pay out last November.

Days after, California realized it was missing out on millions in tax dollars and unanimously approved the multi-state game.

The estimated jackpot on Wednesday is $60 million. But the odds will stay the same with California now in the game.

If you bought 50 tickets a week, you'd win the jackpot on average, every 68 thousand years.
