Edward George, 53, won the jackpot on Wednesday (January 24) with ticket number 2270 that he bought online on January 11. He is the 223rd Indian to win the grand prize.

George works as a system administrator for an IT company in Riyadh where he has lived in the last 26 years. He hails from Hyderabad in India.
