$214 million Powerball jackpot up for grabs

November 17, 2012|By Ian Duncan, The Baltimore Sun

Saturday's Powerball jackpot has rolled up to $214 million after a $50 million Delaware winner in early October.

The last Maryland winner of the Powerball jackpot was a Cecil county couple who won $128.8 million on Christmas eve. That was the second-largest winning ticket ever sold in the state, according to the lottery. The first Powerball win in Maryland was by an Abingdon couple in September, 2011. They claimed $108.8 million.

The winners of all those big payouts have remained anonymous, according to the lottery website. The biggest Maryland win was a $656 million Mega Millions payout that went to a trio of school employees who dubbed themselves The Three Amigos.
