July's half-billion dollar Powerball jackpot winner in New Hampshire has yet to come forward, but the New Hampshire Lottery said it has heard several times from lawyers who may represent the lucky ticket-holder.

The $487 million prize was the eighth-largest jackpot in U.S. history and the fifth-largest Powerball jackpot.

Lawyers have contacted the lottery several times since the jackpot, according to New Hampshire Lottery spokeswoman Maura McCann.

"They wanted to know what the process entails," McCann said. "They were asking about the completion of a claim form, the choice between the annuitized jackpot payment or the cash payment, taxes, things like that."

McCann said the lottery has still not received any word about who the winner is or when he or she will come forward. The winner has a year from the drawing date of July 30 to claim the prize.

"We certainly hope that we'll see something over the next few days or weeks," McCann said. "We can't wait to award this prize to the lucky winner."
