Dubai Duty Free's Million-Dollar

Foysal Hossain, having graced the UAE with his presence for 13 years, embarked on a two-year journey of purchasing Dubai Duty Free raffle tickets. His unwavering dedication bore fruit as he clinched the grand prize of $1 million in the most recent draw, held on a Wednesday that would forever mark his story.

Hailing from Sharjah, Hossain is not only a father to two but also a shrewd businessman who holds the reins of a supermarket and a quad bike rental establishment. His heartwarming reaction encapsulated the magnitude of his win as he expressed his gratitude, saying, "What great news! Thank you so much, Dubai Duty Free." Remarkably, Hossain now stands as only the second Bangladeshi national to have secured the illustrious $1 million prize since the inception of the Millennium Millionaire promotion back in 1999. His winning ticket, numbered from the Millennium Millionaire Series 431, was acquired on a fateful day, July 29.
