Eight Indians are among 10 people who hit a jackpot by winning a whopping dhirham 1 million (USD 2.7 lakh) each in a mega raffle draw in Abu Dhabi. Besides Indians, the winners include a Canadian man and a Filipina, the only woman in the list.
The ‘Big Ticket Draw’ held at Abu Dhabi International Airport on Thursday is the largest and longest-running monthly raffle draw for cash prizes and dream luxury cars in the UAE capital. “I didn’t believe when I got a call and thought that somebody is joking with me. But when I got a second call from the organisers, I was pleasantly shocked,” Abhaya Kumar Krishnan, a purchasing manager at Spinneys’ in Abu Dhabi said.
The 49-year-old Keralite, who will share the money with a friend as they bought the ticket together, said he was planning to spend some portion of the money in charity in Kerala for education.
