(9 July 2019)


Four new winners were announced at the latest Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire and Finest Surprise draw held today, 9th July in Concourse C of Dubai International Airport.

Ms. Jaya Gupta, a 71-year old Indian national and owner of a trading company in Dubai, has become a dollar millionaire when her ticket number 0993 was drawn in Series 303. A resident of Dubai for 35 years now, Ms Gupta is a regular participant in the promotion since its inception in 1999 and bought her winning ticket before her flight to Mumbai to visit her mother.

When asked about her plans with her winnings, she said, 'Since I started buying tickets for Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire draw in 1999, I always have these two things in mind in case I won US$1 million. First, I will donate some money to charity and second, I will buy a house for my two adopted daughters who are in India.'

'I love Dubai as my second home and I love shopping at Dubai Duty Free when I travel. This win will definitely go a long way, so I thank Dubai Duty Free for coming with a life-changing opportunity for its customers like me,' added Ms. Gupta.

Another lucky ticket holder who will be claiming US$1 million in the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire draw is Mr. Ravi Ramchand Bachani, a 37-year old Dubai-based Indian national who won in Series 304 with ticket number 0969.
