Becoming a millionaire after a phone call is just something we dream about, but for this lucky family, their dream became a reality.
Filipino Marelie David won the grand prize of Dhs10 million of the Big Ticket Abu Dhabi. Marelie and her family buy a ticket every year and everyone contributes towards the price of the ticket.
Marelie sounded unsure when she was called by the host of the Big Ticket draw on their live YouTube stream and couldn’t believe that she had won the Dhs10 million.
Marelie’s ticket number was 172193 and she purchased her ticket online.
In addition to Marelie, there were nine other winners, seven Indians, one Pakistani and another Filipino.
