Vas has lived with his family in Dubai for over 23-years, and is a business development manager. He has been playing Big Ticket raffles since 2017 with five of his friends ever since he discovered the promotion on social media.
The third winner, Sreejith, has been living in Doha, Qatar for the last eight years. He works as a nurse and bought his first Big Ticket two years ago with a couple of his friends. Now that he has won, he plans to visit his family back home.
Devnani is the head of a business department in Dubai, and he has been playing these promotions ever since he came to Dubai two years ago. After his great fortune, he said that he plans on donating a portion of his winnings to charity and sending the remaining amount back home to India.
