Qatar resident Suman Muthaiah Nadar Ragavan won 1kg of 24-carat gold and was the third lucky individual to take home the guaranteed prize during the third weekly e-draw. Throughout December, Big Ticket’s guaranteed weekly e-draw gives customers a chance to walk away with 1kg of gold every week.

Suman took advantage of Big Ticket’s “buy two, get one free” offer to make his purchase on December 17 with 10 of his colleagues. After hearing about Big Ticket, he started purchasing tickets and has been doing so every month for the past year.

Overjoyed, he told Big Ticket’s representatives that he hadn’t expected to win the gold prize and plans to invest his winnings into his twin daughters’ futures.
