A Dubai resident for over a year now and a regular buyer of the lottery, Grandhi said he was ecstatic after hearing his name announced during the live draw on DDF's official Facebook page.

"I'm really glad and thankful to Dubai Duty-Free for this amazing opportunity. This will definitely secure a better future for my family in India," said Grandhi, who works as a software engineer for a tech company.
