The concept of “born with a silver spoon” has been realized and taken form in Dubai as a one-year-old baby boy, Mohamed Salah, who joined the long list of Dubai Duty-Free Millennium Millionaires on Tuesday.
The ticket was purchased in his name by his father Ramees Rahman, a 31-year-old resident of Abu Dhabi for over six years. This incident would make Mohamed Salah probably the youngest winner of the DDF Raffle ticket.
Winning his way to be a millionaire, Ramees bought the winning ticket no. 1319 online in Series 323 under his son’s name. “I am extremely delighted of this great news and I thank Dubai Duty Free for this amazing promotion. My son’s future is now well secured,” Ramees said.
This week proves to be very big as the Syrian national Nidal Shanwar, who lives in Al Ain, won Dh12 million Big Ticket Abu Dhabi with Ticket No. 216317 on Monday night.
“I bought two tickets that day at Dh500 each and I was given an extra (third) ticket for free,” said Nidal Shanwar, who is a dentist at a private clinic in Al Ain in which he’s also a partner.
“Thank God. I just can’t believe I have won,” Shanwar told after receiving the great news. Three other winners were also announced in the Dubai Duty-Free Finest Surprise promotion. Shaghayegh Attarzadeh, a 33-year-old Iranian national based in Dubai, won a Mercedes Benz S560 (Magnetite Black Metallic) in Series 1745 with ticket number 0773.
Gloria Malacaste, a 30-year-old Dubai-based Filipino national, won a Moto Guzzi Audace motorbike (Nero Travolgente) in Series 397 with ticket number 0253.
Timothy Reducha, a Canadian national based in Riyadh, won a Moto Guzzi V8S TT motorbike (Giallo Sahara) in Series 398 with ticket number 0786.
