Emirati woman wins Dh1 million in Mahzooz, after bagging 3rd prize in January

An Emirati woman is now a millionaire after winning the raffle draw for Dh1 million in Mahzooz, organizer Ewings announced on Wednesday (May 31).

This is the second time that Sahar won in the draw this year, after taking the third prize in January. This time, however, she took home a whopping Dh1 million in the draw.

“The year started off on a good note for me, as I have won the third prize in January, having scored three out of 5 numbers. But this time, the prize is incomparable, and I will use good judgement to decide how to invest this money,” Sahar said.

She is the 45th person to become a millionaire through Mahzooz and its first female Emirati winner.

To date, three UAE nationals have won Dh1 million with Mahzooz, with a total of Dh7.5 million in prize money given away to more than 8,000 Emirati winners.

Since being introduced to Mahzooz two years ago, Sahar has participated in the weekly draw almost every weekend. She remembers the moment she found out that she had won with fondness.

On Saturday evening, Sahar received multiple calls from her friends to congratulate her on her win. She initially thought it was an orchestrated joke and didn’t give the happy messages much thought.

She decided to check her Mahzooz account the next morning, and before even finding out, she received a call from Mahzooz announcing the good news to her. Her brother was the first person she told about her victory because he was the one who introduced her to Mahzooz.

“While money does not buy happiness, I believe it can bring comfort and security to the life of a person. This is what the prize is going to do for my family,” an elated Sahar said. ICA/Expat Media
