Mohammed Idris was walking to work when he noticed that the shop from which he had purchased his pack had replaced the old winning number with a new one, his. "I was shocked beyond words I immediately rushed to my shop picked up my mobile and hoped to see a miss call but to my dismay there was nothing. Ten minutes later I got a call from The Millionaire Co. saying that I am the winner of the draw. It was unbelievable," said the Bangladeshi native. Mohammed had been working with Al Rehman Electronics from the day he arrived in Dubai. "I intend to use this money to start a business and also ensure that my children receive better education," he added.
