The winning ticket was drawn by Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice-Chairman of Dubai Duty Free, and Salah Tahlak, Senior Vice-President — Corporate Communications.

The lucky winner said: “I have participated in the Millennium Millionaire promotion for the last few years but nonetheless I was a little unsure when I received a call from Dubai Duty Free. I thought it was a joke but not until my details were read over the phone and then I realised that have just become a millionaire!” The Millennium Millionaire Promotion was first introduced in 1999 and in 13 years, 130 $1 million cheques have gone to the winners from all around the globe.

Two more winners were announced in Dubai Duty Free’s Finest Surprise Promotion, with each winning a luxury vehicle.

Elamthuruthi Joseph Robinson, an Indian national living in Bahrain, won a Mercedes Benz S500, and Ghayour Mohammad Khan, a forty nine-year old businessman from New Delhi, won the latest model of a BMW 750Li Executive.

Another winner of the day was  Samer Sarraf, a Dubai-based French national, who won his dream motorbike, a Ducati Superbike 848 Evo just a few days before celebrating his 36th birthday.
