Abu Dhabi: Throughout the month of March, Big Ticket’s guaranteed weekly e-draw is giving three customers the chance to walk away with Dh100,000 each, every week. Among this week’s winners are two nationals of New Zealand and one from India.
Bijin Madhusoodanan, an Indian national who won the first Dh100,000 during the first weekly e-draw in March, has been a resident of Abu Dhabi for the past 12 years and currently works as a driver at Abu Dhabi International Airport. The Big Ticket customer decided to purchase his winning ticket from the airport while on vacation. Madhusoodanan started purchasing tickets since first hearing about the Big Ticket raffle draw through friends in 2015.

Ahuja has been a resident of Dubai for the past 10 years and currently works as an immigration advisor.
