Bill Shaheen of Shaheen & Gordon law firm claimed the prize for the New Hampshire winner. They said that the winner chose the cash-lump sum payment of $256.3 million after federal taxes and created the Robin Egg 2016 Nominee Trust.
Bill made an announcement on behalf of the winners, saying:
"As is evident from our involvement, the winners would like to preserve their anonymity. At this point in time, they are committed to using these funds for philanthropic causes and to make a positive impact on the lives of their family. They feel truly blessed to win this prize — but also realize a serious obligation and responsibility to give back with winning this amount of money. In order to accomplish this goal, we kindly ask you to respect their privacy, as the task in front of them is monumental."
In addition to the jackpot winnings, the Hannaford Supermarket will also receive a bonus of $75,000. They have decided to donate the money to a few charitable organizations, such as food banks, pantries, and youth organizations.

The largest prize ever won on a single Powerball ticket remains the $590.5 million jackpot, won by Gloria Mackenzie in Florida on May 18th, 2013.
