It’s big jackpot for this Indian man. An Indian expatriate in Abu Dhabi has become a millionaire after he won a lottery worth over Rs 17.5 crores. Sunil Mappatta Krishnan Kutty Nair, an expatriate based in Abu Dhabi, takes home the second-largest reward worth Dirham 10 million (approximately INR 17,68,00,000). With raffle tickets costing Dhiram 500, participants usually pitch in to cover the entry cost and split the prize later.
Sunil Mappatta Krishnan Kutty Nair hails from Kerala, will be splitting the prize money with three of his friends, according to a colleague who contributed to the ticket cost.
The earlier Big Ticket Draw of 12 million Dirhams on January 7 was won by Indian national Harikrishnan V Nair, another Keralite who is based in Ajman.
