Victor Cabote Arogar was eagerly looking around the Duty Free shops in the Abu Dhabi International Airport as he waited to board his plane back to the Philippines. A resident of Abu Dhabi for the past seven years, the 33-year-old technician was excited to go back home for a vacation. On impulse, he bought a raffle ticket for the Abu Dhabi Duty Free’s Big Ticket raffle draw.
Several days ago, Arogar got the call that forever changed his life. His lucky ticket was drawn for the one million dollar dirham grand prize ( around $272,293.00 or more than P11,000,000).
In an interview with the Gulf News, Arogar said ”I am very thankful and happy for the draw’s result. I really could not believe it at first when I received the call telling me I was the grand prize winner.”
When asked what he plans to do with his winnings, Arogar said he will invest it on his daughter’s education.
