Luck has shined upon a South Indian driver in Dubai as he has won a Dh15 million grand prize as part of the EASY6 Emirates Draw. Ajay Ogula, who hails from a village in South India had come to UAE around four years back. He is currently working as a driver in a UAE jewelry firm and earns around Dh3,200 every month.
Ogula said that his family back in India didn’t believe him when he shared the news of his winning the lottery.
he thought it was Dh15,000, then he ‘couldn’t count the number of zeroes’
He is hoping to build a charitable trust with the lottery amount which would provide benefit to the many underprivileged people back in his hometown and neighboring villages.
The thirty-one-year-old Indian also plans to start a construction firm and a new home for his family with the remaining amount.
Ogule said that he had previously known about the EASY6 lucky draw and when one of his friends had won Dh7,777, he knew that the lottery draw was authentic as the money had been credited into the friend’s account.
This way Ogule’s bosses also had encouraged him to try his luck with the lucky draw and they also explained the process for enrolling in the lucky draw.
The Emirates draw EASY6 registered its first grand prize winner of Dh15 million after fifteen weeks after its inception. The first episode of the EASY6 lucky draw was aired live on September 30. The MEGA7 lucky draw is another lucky draw scheme started by the Emirates Draw and the winning amount has been raised from Dh140 million to Dh160 million as part of the Christmas week special lucky draw.
