Abu Dhabi's Big Ticket Raffle Draw will halt operations starting April 1, in alignment with UAE regulatory gaming requirements, the Abu Dhabi-based raffle draw announced on Monday.

Despite this pause, the scheduled live draw for series 262 will proceed on Wednesday, April 3, featuring the distribution of all prizes, including a guaranteed grand prize of Dh10 million.

Additionally, Dream Car draws for Maserati Ghibli and Range Rover Evoque, originally slated for May 3, will also occur during this event.

Last year, Big Ticket awarded a total of Dh246,297,071 in prizes. The most recent winner, Dubai-based Indian expat Mohammad Shereef, intends to share his Dh15 million jackpot with 19 friends.

Following suit with other major raffle draw operators, Big Ticket's cessation of operations complies with directives from the UAE Gaming Regulatory Authority (GCGRA), which aims to foster a socially responsible gaming environment.

GCGRA oversees regulatory activities, licensing, and the responsible development of commercial gaming.

Big Ticket expressed gratitude to its customers for their unwavering support and pledged to maintain transparency, responsibility, and integrity in prize distribution.

Updates regarding the resumption of operations will be communicated through official channels, with a commitment to swiftly return to normal business.

During the pause, customers will be unable to access their accounts, but full access will be restored once operations resume. Big Ticket ensures the security and guarantee of all previously won prizes.

While no specific timeline for resuming business was provided, customers can contact Big Ticket customer support for inquiries or assistance at +971022019244 or help@bigticket.ae.
