“I couldn’t believe it. I only found out because I was randomly looking at the Emirates Draw website to see who had won and then I checked to see if I received anything and there was this email! My wife was very happy, but she shared my hesitation about whether it was all true. So, she encouraged me to call the customer service number and they confirmed that I had won,” Ajith told Gulf News.
