An Indian expat from the state of Kerala has won the Dhs10 million grand prize in the weekly Mahzooz draw in Dubai.
Anish, an IT engineer by profession, has become the 24th Mahzooz millionaire. By winning the grand prize he joined the growing list which now consists of 24 multi-millionaires.
On Saturday, July 2, 2022, Anish matched all five numbers and won the top prize of Dhs10,000,000, just two weeks after a Turkish expat scooped up a similar prize in the Mahzooz 81st draw.
Anish, who is participating in the draw from last one year, said he was shocked after learning the news and re-confirmed it through his close friend.
“I will use the prize money to repay by debts, help family members who are in need and most importantly, bring my family here to the UAE to live with me,” said Anish.
About his future investment plan, he said I will continue my current job. “ I did not plan anything yet, but may be invest some money in property market.”
EWINGS, managing operator of Mahzooz, invited Anish to the company’s headquarter to receive his cheque and celebrate the stunning win that will undoubtledly change his life forever.
Speaking to the attending press at the celebratory event, Farid Samji, CEO of EWINGS said: “This is a very special moment for us because, in just two weeks, we have created two multi-millionaires, taking the tally up to 24 millionaires in a little over two years of operation. This is yet another example of how Mahzooz changes lives for the better. Now, we can certainly say that Anish is literally living the Mahzooz dream.”
Samji added: “The celebration does not end here. At the end of July, we will have one more guaranteed winner of a 1 kilogramme of gold, as we have just launched a special Golden Summer Draw where everyone who participates in the weekly draws throughout the month of July will get the chance to win 1 kilogram of gold on July 30, at the last draw of the month. This will give all our participants an additional chance to win big and live the golden dream with Mahzooz.”
In the same draw, the second prize of Dhs1,000,000 was scooped up by 28 winners with each taking home Dhs35,714, while the third prize of Dhs350 was claimed by 1,376 other participants. The guaranteed weekly raffle draw of Dhs300,000 was split among three winners, Aneesh, Tarek and Raja, bringing the total value of the prizes given away at the Mahzooz 83rd draw to Dhs11,781,600.
