Filipino father emerges as the 7th Pinoy and 48th Mahzooz millionaire
21 June 2023, Dubai, UAE: The 133rd Mahzooz raffle draws held on Saturday 17th June 2023, saw the luck of yet another Filipino expat take a dramatic turn, after he won the UAE leading weekly draw’s GUARANTEED raffle prize of AED 1,000,000. Without having to match any of the 5 winning numbers, Jeffrey’s ID was picked up as part of the Mahzooz weekly raffle draw which awards one lucky winner a life changing prize of AED 1,000,000, making him the 7th OFW to join the Mahzooz millionaires league.
Just in time for the Filipino Independence Day celebration, the 47-year-old father who works as a Styrofoam sculptor artist for theme parks in Dubai, recalls how his friend who was watching the draw live on his phone called him as soon as he saw Jeffrey’s name pop up.
“When I received the call from my friend my heart started jumping. I couldn’t believe it and remembered all the past Filipino millionaires who have made it with Mahzooz. Now, I became one of them!”.
At first, the winner's family residing in the Philippines expressed doubts regarding his newfound wealth, prompting him to verify his win multiple times through his Mahzooz account once he realized he had become an overnight millionaire. When asked about his intentions with the substantial sum, Jeffrey stated that after careful consideration with his family, he plans to invest his win in a small business back home in the Philippines. Jeffrey revealed that he regularly participates in Mahzooz to indulge in the prospect of a good life. His dreams encompass providing a brighter future for his child and other loved ones. With this significant stroke of luck, Jeffrey's aspirations are now within closer reach, bringing forth a substantial blessing.
Despite his victory, Jeffrey stated that he does not intend to leave his profession as a carver just yet because it is this employment that has enabled him to turn his life around despite being close to retirement age. Fortune truly favors those who work the hardest.
Jeffrey is the 7th Filipino and the 48th winner to become a millionaire with Mahzooz. Mahzooz previously had six Filipino millionaires: Pateiro, Arlene, and Nelson, who won the grand prize of AED 10 million, and Antonio, Roland, and Sherlon, who won AED 1 million.
The same draw also saw 808 other participants take home AED 400,250 in prize money split between the second and third prizes. For only AED 35, participants can purchase a bottle of Mahzooz water, and enter the weekly draw every Saturday consisting of the Grand Draw, for a chance to win the new top prize of AED 20,000,000 and the new weekly Raffle Draw, which will grant AED 1,000,000 every week to a GUARANTEED millionaire-to-be.
Mahzooz means ‘lucky’ in Arabic and is the UAE’s favourite draw that offers participants a life-changing opportunity to win millions every week. Mahzooz is dedicated to making people’s dreams come true and giving back to the community.
