In the most recent Big Ticket Draw, an Indian expat won two cash prizes on the same day (July 3).
Ajimon Kochuman, a native of Kerala’s Kollum district, participated in the Big Ticket live drawing on July 3. The Big Ticket organizers had a prize for attendees of the live draw at the conclusion of the draw.
It was a Dh10,000 cash award.
Kochuman was pleasantly delighted to learn that his ticket had been selected as the winner when the name of the winner was announced.
“I raced up to the stage to collect my cheque. Then I saw so many missed calls on my phone from Big Ticket. Someone there told me that I had won another cash prize of Dh30,000.”
The two-time lucky winner said his happiness knew no bounds. “I went up the stage to collect a Dh10,000 prize money but walked back with two cash prizes in my hand.”
Renewal of trade licence
Kochumun, who owned a consulting firm along with friends in Dubai, said he had to stall the trade license renewal of his company for lack of funds. “Now with this cash win I can renew the Trade License of my company.”
A resident of UAE since nine years said he had to take his family back to India during Covid. “It was a tough time financially. Hopefully renewing the trade license of my company will ensure more business comes in and I can get my family back to the UAE.”
Bushra Yamani, co-host of the Big Ticket draw invited people to attend the live draw. “There are many prizes to be won, games to be played at the live draw site. More than that it is a chance to see a life changing moment which can be inspirational for many. And if one is lucky like Kochumun, they can walk away with prizes.”
