Big Ticket Live draw
The loyal Big Ticket customer says he has been buying tickets every month for the past five years and was shocked to learn of his big win. When asked what he planned to do with his winnings he said, “I’m not sure yet because I really did not expect this to happen. I’m still shocked, and will need to take some time to think about my options.”
The grand prize winner, who purchased his winning ticket with a group of 30 people, will be splitting the prize money evenly.
During live draw, ten lucky winners of Indian, Palestinian, Lebanese, and Saudi Arabian nationalities were also announced, each of them taking home cash prizes worth a total of Dhs100,000.
On the same day, Suthesh Kumar Kumaresan was named the fourth weekly e-draw winner for the month of December, taking home Dhs1 million.
The Abu Dhabi resident who works as an engineer for Etihad Airways says he stops by the in-store counters at Abu Dhabi International Airport to buy his tickets each time he travels.
In keeping with this tradition, he bought his winning ticket on his way back to the UAE from a vacation he took with his family: “It was my seven-year-old daughter who actually chose the winning ticket numbers,” he told Big Ticket’s representatives.
“My family is very excited about the win. We bought a home in India and plan to use the money to pay off the interest.”
Congratulations once again to our Big Ticket Dhs20 million grand prize winner and to all the other winners from yesterday’s show.
