An Indian expatriate, John Varghese recently became the new multi-millionaire of Big Ticket raffles after winning Dh12 million, the second biggest jackpot of the Big Ticket raffle in Abu Dhabi. His winning ticket number is 093395.
Varughese received a call from the organisers after the draw had taken place at the Abu Dhabi International Airport. "I couldn't believe that I could get lucky. April Fool's Day had just passed by and I thought it was some friend pulling my leg. I also had doubts if this was a fake call as you read about lot of scams happening," said a beaming Varughese, who came to Dubai in 2016-end.
Importantly, this was second time that such a grand prize money was rewarded by Big Ticket as January’s Big Ticket draw was the first biggest ever with a grand prize money of Dh12 million. In January, 2018 an Indian expatriate also became a multi-millionaire after winning Dh12 million, the jackpot of Big Ticket raffle in Abu Dhabi. Hari Krishnan’s third Big Ticket in his over 15 years of stay in the country was proved to be the biggest New Year gift for his family, as he bought the winning ticket online in December.
