The Powerball jackpot reached an estimated $250 million, after no winner emerged from Saturday night's drawing.

The cash value is $166.8 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The game is played in 42 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands.

The most recent big winner in Maryland was a couple who bought the winning $128.8 million at a family-owned restaurant and liquor store in Cecil County last 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 winner of June 2011 $77.1 million jackpot in Georgia remains unclaimed, according to the lottery.
