It seems Lady Luck is walking side by side with Chehadeh Mansour, a Syrian national living in Dubai, who won $1 million at a Dubai Duty Free (DDF) raffle on Tuesday.

Mansour had driven away a BMW 750Li Exclusive car in January 2015 at another DDF raffle.

A regular participant of Dubai Duty Free promotions, Mansour is currently on holiday in Syria with his family. He is also the fifth Syrian national to have won $1 million at Dubai Duty Free.

The 47-year-old father of four works as a sales man at Gold Souk, and had purchased his ticket -- Series no. 251, ticket no. 1199 -- while traveling to Beirut from Terminal 1.

In other DDF draws held on Tuesday, Ishwinder Singh Rehsi, a 23-year-old Indian national from Jabalpur, won a Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe (Guards Red), while Ali Saad Al Janoubi, a Saudi Arabian national, won a BMW R 1200 R bike.

"I'm surprised to hear such a wonderful news, and I thank Dubai Duty Free for this luck," said Rehsi, who had purchased his first DDF ticket ever.
