She has been regularly participating in the raffle for 10 years.
An Australian national has joined the long list of $1 million winners when the latest Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire and Finest Surprise draws were held on Wednesday at Dubai International Airport.
Eleanor Paterson, a 61-year-old Australian national living in Perth, became the latest dollar millionaire in Millennium Millionaire Series 343 with ticket number 0353, which she purchased online on October 19.
A regular participant in the Dubai Duty Free promotion for 10 years now, Paterson considered number 3 as her lucky number, which is why she always chooses tickets with the number three, and buys three tickets every month.
“Thank you, Dubai, and Dubai Duty Free, my perseverance and lucky number has finally paid off,” she said.
Paterson is the 5th Australian national to have won $1 million since the start of the Millennium Millionaire promotion in 1999.
Shane Carroll, a 35-year-old Indian national based in Dubai, won a Moto Guzzi Eldorado (Rosso) with ticket number 0366 in Finest Surprise Series 430, which he purchased online on October 27.
Meanwhile, Alia Malakani, a 28-year-old Syrian national based in Al Ain, won a Harley Davidson Sportster XL 1200C (Billiard Red/Vivid Black) with ticket number 0650 in Finest Surprise Series 431, which she purchased online on November 5.
