Dubai: A Pakistani national who went on holiday in Dubai got lucky after he bagged a kilo of gold during a raffle draw.
Syed Sarwar Hasan has just been declared winner of the jackpot prize in Deira City Centre’s Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) promotion.
Sarwar was among the hundreds of shoppers who earned a raffle ticket for a chance to win a kilo of gold (photographed below) in exchange for a minimum spend of Dh200.
The draw was scheduled a few days earlier, but the name of the winner was announced only on Tuesday, in time for Pakistan’ 71st Independence Day celebration.
The value of the gold was pegged at Dh145,000.
