Abu Dhabi Winner of Dh20 million Jackpot To Share Winnings with colleagues

How would you spend Dh20m if you won the jackpot?

Well, an Indian Dad who won a mega Dh20 million jackpot on Abu Dhabi’s Big Ticket raffle says he will generously share his fortune with others.

Abdussalam NV says that he will spread his winnings equally among seven work colleagues – each receiving Dh2.5 million!

Now that’s an amazing colleague.

He will also support charities, expand his business and more!

If that’s not enough generosity, 28-year old Abdussalam, will use some of the money to support charity. He will also save some for his kids education and also expand his business. That’s a good plan, don’t you think?

The lucky lad’s wife also recently gave birth. But unfortunately, the jackpot winner has yet to see his new son. His wife had reportedly travelled to India for the delivery, but he is really excited to meet his child soon!

Organisers were initially unable to contact the man which meant he could lose out on this amazing win!

Mr Abdussalam apparently provided two incorrect phone numbers when he purchased the raffle.

Organisers appealed for help and he was declared the winner on the 3rd of January after colleagues saw the appeal.

The Future Looks Good For The Winner.. and colleagues of course!

Reports initially said that Abdussalam had resigned from his company after winning, however he later clarified that his win would allow him to restructure the business and move towards expansion.

Abdussalam co-owns three grocery stores and now has plans to open a chain of supermarkets.

“I will also be donating funds to a charity that helps pay for weddings for girls whose families cannot afford to pay,” Mr Abdussalam said to the media.

Part of his winnings will be set aside to pay for his children’s education. He has a six-year-old daughter as well as his son who is just three months old.
