CONCORD, N.H. — The New Hampshire Lottery says the winner of the $487 million Powerball jackpot in July is set to claim the prize.

The lottery said Friday that attorneys for the winner are planning to come forward Monday and will announce the winner’s philanthropic plans for the money. It’s not clear if the winner will make an appearance.

It was the eighth-largest U.S. lottery jackpot. The lump sum option is worth $330.6 million.

The winning ticket was sold at a Hannaford Supermarket in Raymond for the drawing on July 30. The southern New Hampshire town has about 10,000 residents.

Tickets are sold in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
