An Indian expat in Saudi Arabia is the latest millionaire of 2022 after winning at the Abu Dhabi Ticket draw in the UAE.
Veqar Jafri won AED1 million in the weekly electronic draw.
“Big Ticket has changed many lives throughout the years and today they have changed mine,” the Indian expat was quoted as saying by Khaleej Times.
He felt that he was going to win in December. So, he purchased a ticket during the first week of December with two hopes–winning the electronic weekly millionaire draw and winning the AED25 million grand prize.
When his name was not called during the draw, he tried his luck again and purchase two tickets on December 24.
This time, the odds were with him, and received a call from the Abu Dhabi Big Ticket representative, informing him about his winnings.
“The best part about Big Ticket is they are so transparent. They change the lives of the winners and everyone associated with them,” he said.
The AED25 million grand prize will be drawn on January 3.
