The Big Ticket lottery is a popular lottery game in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). If you want to play the Big Ticket lottery game, here are the steps to follow:
You can buy a Big Ticket lottery ticket online or directly from the store at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Al Ain Duty-Free, or City Terminal Abu Dhabi.

The Big Ticket lottery draw takes place on the third of every month at the Abu Dhabi International Airport.

There couldn’t be a game that could be as easy as Big Ticket. Each Big Ticket raffle ticket has a unique six-digit number on it. All these numbers are safely kept inside a drum on the day of the draw, which takes place in the Arrivals Hall at Abu Dhabi International Airport. From the drum, the tickets are picked up at random. The ticket number that shows up in the draw wins.
While various tickets are drawn from the drum for different cash and other rewards, there is only one ticket that is drawn for the jackpot.
Big Ticket draws happen once a month. However, there is no decided time or date for the draw. It is announced nearly one month in advance on the official website of Big Ticket.
For special draws, the schedule is announced only after all the tickets have been sold.
Big Ticket brings you closer to achieving your dreams of becoming a millionaire.
