Mahzooz: Multimillion win helps Filipino dad provide medical care for his son
9 November 2021, Dubai, UAE: Fortune accelerated Filipino expat Paterio’s status to that of a millionaire overnight during the 50th weekly live Mahzooz Grand Draw. The lucky participant scooped the AED 10,000,000 Top Prize after matching five out of the five winning numbers, which were 4, 26, 36, 37, and 38. Paterio, who is Mahzooz’s 19th millionaire, also has the distinction of being the first Top Prize winner of Mahzooz’s new game design which was introduced two weeks ago.
Paterio, 52, is resolute that the entirety of his prize money will be dedicated to giving his family all the possible comforts imaginable. “I wouldn’t have been able to save such a huge amount even if I had worked for a hundred years,” says the material contract supervisor who has spent 13 years working in the construction industry, away from his family.
“I’ve had goosebumps ever since I received the call informing me about my win. This amount will allow my family and I to pursue any and every dream we have.”
For the father of two, what tops that list of dreams is state-of-the-art care for his younger son who has cerebral palsy. “There are some dreams AED 10,000,000 can’t fulfil, like helping my child who can’t walk or sit live a normal life. But this money will definitely help me take care of his medical expenses and give him the best at-home hospice care possible. I will remain forever grateful to Mahzooz for that,” explains the regular Mahzooz participant.
A big house followed by real estate investments are the next on Paterio’s wish list. “A family house has been my wife’s greatest dream for years, and now it’s time to finally grant her that wish,” he says.
The self-confessed motorhead plans to buy a Ford Raptor, not as a treat for himself, he clarifies, but another prudent investment: “The pickup truck is for a business my wife and I plan to invest the prize money in. I’m a normal guy who enjoys a simple, low-profile life. The fact that this money allows me to offer my family a beautiful future is the greatest gift of all for me,” Paterio explains.
What’s got Paterio revved up with excitement for his imminent reunion with his family. “I’ve spent the last decade toiling away alone in Madagascar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, just to ensure my family is comfortable. It’s time for me to be with them and help care for my child.” Paterio urges everyone to try their luck with Mahzooz: “A platform like Mahzooz gives people an additional shot at making big money to fulfil their dreams. Keep participating in Mahzooz; fortune favours those who are patient.”
The 50th weekly live Mahzooz Grand Draw also saw 16 winners share the second prize of AED 1,000,000 and 884 winners bag the third prize of AED 350 each. Additionally, three winners took home AED 100,000 each in the Raffle Draw which features three guaranteed winners every week. The total prize money won in the 50th draw was AED 11,309,400.
