A ticket he had bought on February 17 with the number, 202511, was the winning code for the lottery's biggest prize on Wednesday,

After the announcement, Mr Krishnappa told a Big Ticket representative the “first thing you should do is trust in Big Ticket, because it is an investment".

The Big Ticket cost 500 DHS and the next draw will happen on April 3, and can be watched in a live stream.

Meanwhile, there was another millionaire on the night. Abu Dhabi expat Jayaprakash Philip pocketed Dh1 million with his ticket number 167221 bought on February 7.
