Lady Luck smiled on an Indian national as he won USD1 million (AED 3.67 million) in the latest Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire draw. The person struck gold as he retired to Kerala after spending 37 years in United Arab Emirates.
58-year-old Indian national Kalapparambath Mohamed Ali Musthafa recently retired as a sales representative from Gulf Target Holdings LLC. He bought his third ticket for the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire promotion at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in August, just a few days before flying back home to India.
The lucky man purchased ticket number 0338 in Series 253 which led him to join the millionaire club of Dubai’s raffle draw.
Sharing his excitement, Musthafa said, “I am very grateful to Dubai Duty Free for this new fortune which I will share with my family especially to my two sons living in Abu Dhabi.”
Another lucky person who won a luxury bike was seven-year old Muhammad Hamdan Faisal. He emerged victorious in the Finest Surprise draw that was conducted directly after the Millennium Millionaire draw.
Muhammad’s father, Faisal Malik, a Dubai-based Pakistani national, bought ticket No 0433 in Series 315 under his son's name. His father is a regular participant in Dubai Duty Free Finest Surprise promotions.
