At the Series 254 Big Ticket Live draw, Sakil Khan Sarwar Khan was named the lucky winner who took home the Dhs15 million grand prize in August 2023.

A resident of Dubai, Sakil works as an engineering coordinator at an IT company and will now use his cash prize winnings to clear his debt and start his own business.

He has been purchasing Big Tickets with a group of his friends since 2015, and says he plans to continue to do so. Tonight’s win, he says will be shared amongst 15 people.

“Usually, I select raffle ticket numbers randomly,” he said. “This time, though, I purchased the tickets on my birthday and really thought hard about the numbers I chose.”

Bangladeshi wins Jeep Wrangler

At tonight’s Big Ticket Live Draw, Mintu Chandra Bari Chandra walked away with a brand-new Jeep Wrangler. The Bangladeshi national has been a resident of the UAE since 2009 and now lives in Al Ain where he works at a hair salon.

“When I found out I won, I could hardly believe it. My brother was the one who first shared the news with me and – along with a group of my friends – verified the win through the Big Ticket website. This has been the happiest moment for me – and for my wife and two children, who were so excited to hear I won.”

The long-time Big Ticket customer, who did also participate in the Dhs15 million grand prize draw, has been purchasing raffle tickets for the past 8-9 years and bought this Dream Car ticket on his own from the Big Ticket in-store counter at Al Ain International Airport.

He dreams of one day opening his own hair salon and hopes to be able to relocate his family from abroad to the UAE.

Congratulations once again to the Big Ticket Dhs15 million grand prize winner and to all the other winners from tonight’s show.
