In a stroke of luck, Hyderabad-based Ravi Kumar, a 36-year-old company driver, clinched the grand prize of 50,000 dirham (Rs 11,31,926) in Dream Island’s latest scratch card game. Kumar’s win came after he purchased “buy 3 get 1 free” scratch cards at the Abu Dhabi Airport Arrival Hall branch on September 24.

Having resided in the UAE for the past 15 years, Ravi Kumar has been a loyal participant in Dream Island’s draw for over a year. When asked about his reaction to the life-changing windfall, Kumar told Khaleej Times, “For a long time, I planned to open one small business in my hometown in Telangana. I never had the chance because of financial issues, so it was only a plan… But this time, with this money from Dream Island, I will definitely start.”
