    One UK ticket-holder has won a massive £111.7 million EuroMillions jackpot in tonight's (June 2) draw, Camelot said.

    The winner will be the 16th Brit to ever win more than £100 million from a lottery.

    Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, said a single ticket-holder, who has not yet come forward, had scooped the £111.7 EuroMillions jackpot in Friday’s draw.

    He said: “What a fantastic night for UK EuroMillions players, as a single ticket-holder has scooped tonight’s special £111.7 million EuroMillions jackpot.

    “Players are urged to check their tickets and to give us a call if they think they are tonight’s lucky winner.

    “Thanks to National Lottery players, £30 million is generated every week for good causes across the country. This money supports projects across the nation, with a total of more than 670,000 grants – to projects both big and small – having been made across the UK to date.”

    The winning numbers for tonight were 03, 12, 15, 25, 43, with the additional two numbers being 10 and 11.

    While the as-yet-unnamed winner of tonight's draw will be feeling pretty chuffed, this was far from the biggest win in the UK.

    Last year, Camelot revealed that one person won an enormous £195,707,000 in a EuroMillions draw in July.

    To this day, the person has not come out to publicly admit that they won the UK's biggest lottery prize.

    The Daily Star previously reported that one lucky couple ended up thanking a golden penis-shaped god for their massive £560,000 lotto win.

    Restaurant owner Udom Kanmuang and his wife Noi pocketed 24million baht (£558,000) in the lottery draw in Thailand.

    The couple believes their win came as a result of daily prayers to Por Pu Sian Anan Nakarat, a figure in Thai folklore.

    Noi would apparently pray to a statue of Por Pu Sian Anan Nakarat in the pond at their restaurant every morning at 11am.
