The other winner of the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot has presented the winning ticket, The Arizona Lottery announced Friday.

The winner "has declined participation" in a press conference later Friday, the lottery said in a statement, adding that "Arizona Lottery executives will provide details about this historic win."

The winner's name will eventually become public, however, under the lottery rules in Arizona.

The jackpot was the largest in Powerball history, with a cash option of $384.7 million before taxes.

It is being shared with Mark and Cindy Hill, who claimed their prize on Nov. 30. The Missouri couple took the lump sum payment of $136.5 million after taxes.

The Arizona winner also elected to take the cash option, the lottery stated.
