Eliza M, a grade school student, won the jackpot with ticket No.0333, the Khaleej Times reported.
Her father, identified as M. from Mumbai and a resident of Dubai for 19 years, said that he was a regular participant in the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire promotion since 2004.
With 9 as his lucky number, he decided to buy ticket No. 0333 online under his daughter's name, Eliza, the paper said.
"I have been buying tickets for the $1 million promotion since Series 43, and in fact, I have kept that ticket all this time. I never missed buying a ticket for every series including the Double and Multi-Millionaire Promotions," the girl's father said.
Following the draw, two more winners were announced in Dubai Duty Free's Finest Surprise Promotion, each winning a luxury motorbike.
Mohammad Haneef Adam, a 23-year-old Dubai-based Indian national, won an Indian Scout Bobber.
A resident of Dubai for 20 years, Adam currently works in Sharjah.
