Nobin Mathew had bought the winning ticket in October

Nobin Mathew, an Indian national living in Kuwait, won Dh15 million in the Big Ticket Abu Dhabi draw held on Tuesday.

Mathew’s ticket was chosen live on the Big Ticket stage by last month’s winner Ahmed Al Hamidi, a Saudi national living in Bahrain.

When Big Ticket organisers called Mathew, he wasn’t watching the live telecast but immediately realised he had hit the jackpot.

Mathew couldn’t contain his excitement. "I am shocked. I don’t know what to say,” he said.

Mathew had bought the winning ticket number 254806 on October 17.

The Big Ticket promotion for December has alrady started. People can buy tickets until November 30 for the Dh12 million draw. Due to Covid restrictions, the draw is being held behind closed doors.
