172nd Dollar Millionaire walked away from Dubai Duty Free




Tuesday, 19th August 2014 – Mr. Sreeram Chellappa, an Indian national who lives in Dubai and works for International Food Network LLC, struck gold when his lucky ticket no. 0415 was drawn in the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire promotion Series 172 earlier this morning in Concourse C, Dubai International Airport.


The lucky winner is not available for immediate comment so his surprise still awaits him.


In its 15-year lifespan the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire Promotion has created 172 dollar millionaires and there have been four lucky winners who won twice.


Following the Millennium Millionaire draw, Dubai Duty Free conducted the Finest Surprise draw and announced two lucky winners of luxury vehicles.



A forty-three year old Pakistani national living in Dubai, Mr. Marc Purslow won the top of the range McLaren MP4 12C Coupe (Titanium Silver), which was drawn in Series 1572. Mr. Purslow was over the moon when he heard that his ticket no. 0345 won him the snazzy sports car.


“I can hardly believe that I have just won my dream car! I can’t wait to have the first drive and hear the roar of the engine!” commented an emotional Mr. Purslow by phone.


Another winner who was equally delighted with the prize is an Indian national from Doha, Qatar. Mr. Sudhir Ramchandra Pawar won a Ducati Superbike 899 Panigale in Series 239 with ticket no. 0787. Mr. Pawar has been trying his luck for a few years before he got his much-awaited prize. He is now looking forward to visiting Dubai Duty Free to receive his brand new bike
