It’s been more than a month since the big $1.586 billion Powerball draw and still nobody in California has stepped forward to claim their portion of the record-setting lottery jackpot.

Winning tickets were sold in three states. Winners of the Jan. 13 lottery in Tennessee came forward almost immediately and Florida winners were announced on Wednesday.

However, in California, nobody has surfaced to claim a massive share worth $528 million. The lucky ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven market in Chino Hills, San Bernardino County.

The winner can choose from a 30-year annuity worth the $528 million before federal taxes or take a one-time payment of $327 million.
