(20 August 2019)


One lucky Indian expat in Dubai hit the jackpot and won US$1 million in the latest Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire and Finest Surprise draw held today at Concourse B, Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport.

Mrs. Beejal O, a 34-year-old Dubai-based Indian national become a dollar millionaire in Series 308 with ticket number 4111, was delighted and could not believe her luck.Commenting on her win, she said: 'I’m truly speechless and I’m beyond grateful. I don’t know how to thank Dubai Duty Free for this big surprise.'

A resident of Dubai for seven years and a regular participant in Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire promotion, Mrs Beejal’s husband bought a ticket under both of their names for the first time while travelling to India on 25th July. Among the ticket numbers presented to them to choose, they picked ticket 4111, which happens to be their apartment number.

Mrs. Dias bought her winning ticket on her way back to the UK after celebrating her 40th birthday and 12th wedding anniversary in Dubai with her husband.

'Dubai Duty Free’s promotion is a beautiful idea and I really like it! I’ve been living in the UK for eight years now, but I still love Dubai that’s why I keep coming back whenever I have a chance to visit and I also never missed a chance to buy tickets to your promotion. Thank you so much Dubai Duty Free.'

Mrs. Dias is the fourth Portuguese to win in the DDF Finest Surprise promotion since it started in 1989.
