An Indian national working as a technician in Dubai has hit the jackpot, winning the latest Millenium Millionaire raffle in the UAE. The Dubai Duty-Free Series 351 was won by Sarath Kunnummal on Wednesday, 17th February at the draw held in Dubai International Airport, landing Kunnummal $1 million (about ₹7,2 crore). He bought his winning ticket, number 4275, online and is sharing his winnings with nine other people. This will net him, and each of his lottery group $100,000 each.
Kunnummal is originally from the Kannur district in Kerala, and said of his win, “My parents are more than 70 years old. They have health issues. I will save this money for them. I also have a dream of building a big house for my parents in Kerala. These are tough times and I am grateful for this win. It is taking time to sink in. Rest assured this money will be put to good use.”
