Dubai resident wins Dhs15 million grand prize with Big Ticket

At the Series 249 Big Ticket Live Show, first-time customer Sam Heidaritorshizi was named the grand prize winner who took home the Dhs15 million grand prize.

A resident of Dubai, the Turkish national moved to the UAE four years ago and is currently the Managing Director of a pharmaceutical company.

Sam purchased his first-ever Big Ticket online by taking advantage of the buy-two-get-one-free promotion during the first week of February.

When Big Ticket’s representatives first tried to get ahold of Sam to tell him about his big win, his line was engaged thanks to the flood of phone calls he received from close friends who wasted no time congratulating him.

Overjoyed, Sam says he never expected to be named a winner despite continuously checking the Big Ticket website over the past week hoping to see his name: “Thank you, Big Ticket! You have changed my life!”

Big Ticket second prize

The second prize winner of the night, Emirati national Salim Albastaki, walked away with Dhs1 million.

The first-time winner, who has been purchasing tickets for the past 15 years, says he first found out about Big Ticket through an advertisement and was curious enough to try his luck.

Grateful for his win, Salim says he will continue to purchase Big Tickets in hopes that he will one day be lucky enough to also take home the grand prize.

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

Dhs20 million prize

At the upcoming April live draw, one lucky winner will win Dhs20 million with Big Ticket.

In addition to the grand prize, for the first time this year, nine other winners will have the chance to walk away with guaranteed cash prizes during the upcoming live draw.

A second prize amount of Dhs100,000 will be announced, as well as a third prize amount of Dhs90,000, fourth prize of Dhs80,000, fifth prize of Dhs70,000, sixth prize of Dhs60,000, seventh prize of Dhs50,000, eighth prize of Dhs40,000, ninth prize of Dhs30,000 and tenth prize of Dhs20,000.
