Britty Markose, who works as a draughtsman in the capital Abu Dhabi, has said that he was expecting to win the jackpot. Mr Markose, who is from Kerala and has been in Dubai since 2004, takes part in the Big Ticket for a couple of years but is not a regular, Gulf News reported. "So many are winning (from Kerala) and every time I harbour great expectations. But this time I had a feeling that I will win". He added that this was the fifth time he had purchased a ticket," Mr Markose was quoted as saying by the report. "My wife and my two sons are both in Kerala. I still have my loans here and I just made a top-up recently. I have just not decided but clearing off the debts will be my top priority," said Mr Markose. Like any expat, he too has loans to repay and a dream house to build.
