A Sri Lankan expat has won a Dh20 million grand prize in the latest draw of Abu Dhabi Big Ticket.

According to Gulf News, Thurailingam Prabagarwas named the winner at the Series 255 Big Ticket Live draw.

Thurailingam moved to the UAE 16 years ago and is currently the supervisor of a valet service company in Dubai. 

He purchased his winning ticket online by taking advantage of the Summer Promotion buy-two-get-two-free during the last week of August.

Thurailingam has been purchasing Big Tickets with a group of 10 of his friends for the past five years and plans to continue to do so. 

When asked about their big win, his childhood friend said: “This win has come as a big shock. We still haven’t come out of the shock, I think. This win will change lives.” (NewsWire)
