Dubai-based Indian expat Rafeek Mohammed won Dh1 million in Abu Dhabi Big Ticket’s weekly millionaire draw.

Mohammed was busy cooking on Friday afternoon when he received the life-changing call from show’s host Bouchra, informing him that he had won Dh1 million.

“I am very happy. This couldn’t have come at a better time. Dh1 million is a lot of money for me,” an overjoyed Mohammed said.

“I plan on settling my debts and will donate a part of my winnings to charity.”

Mohammed, who is a cook by profession, will be sharing the prize money with nine other friends, who bought the ticket together.

Earlier this month, Big Ticket announced that for the first time that they would be making a millionaire every week in December. Harun Sheikh was the first millionaire. And Mohammed is the second of the six millionaires to be named this month.

Both the winners stand a chance to win Dh25 million grand prize, Dh2 million second prize or four other cash prizes during the draw held on January 3, 2022.
