ABU DHABI: It was a delightful day for an Indian expat. The UAE based businessman, Vazhappallil Yohannan Simon, who has his roots in Kerala received a call from Big Ticket about his lucky feat. Initially he rebuffed the call as a prank. But after repeated assurances, he believed he had actually won Dhs10 million in the Abu Dhabi draw.

Simon won in the Big 10 million Draw series 194.

Last three times Simon bought tickets along with his friends but it wasn’t successful. This time Simon tried his luck alone by purchasing four tickets. And one of them clicked.

The prestigious Abu Dhabi draw said on its Facebook account, “Congratulations to Mr Vazhappallil Yohannan Simon, from India, with winning ticket no. 041614 . He won Dhs10 million in BIG 10 MILLION Series 194.”

Simon said, “I am totally surprised by the call from Big Ticket. Initially I thought it is just a fake call but actually it was true that I am a winner. God blessed me after my 13 years in the UAE with Dhs10 million and Thank you to the Big Ticket team.”

The winner also urged buyers to never lose hope by saying, “Big Ticket buyers never lose your hope, stay there tight and try your very best, one day it would be your time to shine.”

Jayson Baloloy with Ticket No. 001270 from Philippines won a Land Rover luxury car.

Apart from Simon, there were nine other lucky winners with the Big Ticket.

The draw was held on Friday, at the Arrivals Hall of the Abu Dhabi International Airport.

The Big Ticket started realising Big Dreams in 1992 when it was first established at the Abu Dhabi Airport. Today, Big Ticket is the largest and longest-running raffle-draw for cash prizes and dream luxury cars.
