2 Filipinos, 2 Indians share Dh1 million Mahzooz prize


DUBAI – Two Filipinos and two Indians will be splitting the Dh1 million secondary prize in the latest Mahzooz draw, organisers said on Thursday (June 10).

The four expats matched five out six winning numbers 4, 18, 20, 21, 29 and 36 in the June 5 draw. They will be taking home Dh250,000 each. The Dh50 million jackpot remains up for grabs.

Leilani, 44, said she will use the money to support her parents and her 12-year-old daughter in the Philippines.

The Filipina, a dentist who has lived in Al Ain since 2006, said that when she saw the winning numbers flash on the screen, she had to “pinch herself” just to make sure it was real.

She is looking forward to giving a comfortable life to her parents, saying that it is the least she could do after the sacrifices her father did while working in Saudi Arabia to support their family.

She also hopes to make her daughter’s dream of studying medicine come true, and donate part of her winnings to her high school.

Another Filipino winner, Alex, said he will use the money to buy a piece of land in the Philippines.

The 35-year-old said he will also give money to cover the medical bills of a colleague who is paralysed.

Indian winners of the latest Mahzooz draw also planned to give back a portion of their winnings to help people.

“I plan to use my winnings to give back to my community,” said Anthony, a 36-year-old Indian who has been living in Dubai for more than 13 years.

Another Indian expat, Renjith, said he will use his prize to pay of his loans and help his family in Kerala, adding that “it’s a tough time for everyone” now.
