Dubai: An expatriate in the UAE has just scooped a multi-million-dirham jackpot in Abu Dhabi.

Devanandan Puthumanam Parampath from India has hit the mega prize in the latest edition of Big Ticket, a multi-millionaire-making raffle draw held at the country’s capital on Tuesday morning.

The win has just made the resident from India Dh5 million richer and his name joins the growing list of multi-millionaire Indians who have scored big at raffle draws in the UAE.

The new Big Ticket winner holds the lucky numbers 085303, which were drawn at the Abu Dhabi International airport at 10am today.

The Big Ticket, along with other similar promotions like the Dubai Duty Free Millionaire, offers residents and visitors in the UAE the opportunity to fulfil their dreams.

Just a few days ago, an Australian tourist won $1 million (Dh3.6 million) at the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire Promotion. The win was unexpected, as the visitor had purchased the ticket out of the blue, while on a stopover in Dubai.
