Indian wins $1 million at Dubai Duty Free raffle

Dhaneesh Kotharamban, a 25-year-old Indian, has won a million dollar at the Dubai Duty Free (DDF) Millennium Millionaire and Finest Surprise draw held today. Dhanesh bought his first ticket in the million dollar promotion a few weeks ago while traveling to Kerala for a holiday.

Dhaneesh, who has been living in Dubai for a year and a half, works as an electrician. “I’ve never thought that I could win this big at such a young age! Thank God for this wonderful gift and thank you Dubai Duty Free!,” Dhaneesh said after receiving a call from the DDF representative.

The second Millennium Millionaire winner of the day was 34-year old Jordanian national Yazan Qaryouti, who won in Series 267 with ticket number 1090.
