UAE. Dubai Duty Free drew the latest winner of its Double Millionaire promotion today, with Kuwaiti national Khaled Abdulaziz Al Asousi winning the top US$2 million prize.

The draw was conducted by Dubai Duty Free’s Executive Vice Chairman Colm McLoughlin and President George Horan and drew a crowd of passengers at Dubai International Airport.

Following the Double Millionaire draw, a presentation was made to a previous Millennium Millionaire winner, Binu Mathew, an Indian national living in Dubai, who received a ceremonial cheque for US$1 million which he won along with his colleagues two weeks earlier.

Mathew said: “It was a pleasant shock to become a Dollar millionaire in one day. I am delighted to join Dubai Duty Free today to receive the much awaited prize and would like to thank the company for making this happen.”
