I’m so happy to have won my very first Dubai Duty Free ticket, so I encourage everyone to take part in your promotion,” he said.

Biju Joseph, a 54-year-old Indian resident of Dubai, won a Harley-Davidson Nightster (Vivid Black) motorcycle. Another first-time participant, Joseph, is a father of three and works for an auto parts company.
