DUBAI – An Indian expatriate in Abu Dhabi is a new multi-millionaire after winning the Dh10 million jackpot in the Big Ticket Draw in the capital.
Sunil Mappatta Krishnan Kutty Nair could not believe his luck when he won the second-largest reward given away this year.
Nair did not say how he would spend his winnings. He is currently travelling to India.
The Abu Dhabi-based sales executive will be splitting the prize with four friends who pitched in to buy the Dh500 winning ticket.
Nair’s ticket was picked by last month’s winner of Dh12 million during the draw at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Monday’s draw also included cash prizes between Dh10,000 and Dh100,000 won by nine other Indian nationals. GAD/Expat Media
