Mahzooz Raffle Draw helps winners secure loved ones’ futures

18 March 2022, Dubai, UAE: The 68th weekly live Mahzooz draw set off a chain reaction of fulfilling dreams, when three expats won the guaranteed weekly prize of AED 300,000 in the Raffle Draw.

Pakistani driver Umar, 33, from Sharjah, cannot believe the timing of his windfall. “I was about to apply for a loan to help cover my 18-year-old twin brothers’ university education. This AED 100,000 arrived just at the nick of time! I can now accomplish that goal without any debts all thanks to Mahzooz,” says the regular Mahzooz participant.

The caring brother also plans on gifting his family a car with his prize money and investing the remainder smartly to secure his two young daughters’ future. “I was going through such a difficult time trying to meet all my family members’ various needs. But now Mahzooz has given my finances a new lease of life and I can fulfil all my loved ones’ dreams,” adds Umar.

Filipino winner Melecio, too, intends on using his prize money to educate his college-going daughters in the Philippines. He recounts the moment he discovered his change in fortune: “I shouted when I saw my name on the screen during the live draw show and woke up my roommates,” “I participate regularly and never once stopped believing that I would be a winner one day,” says the 42-year-old merchandiser.

Besides educating his daughters, the basketball fan also has a few other plans lined up for his winning amount: “I will send some money to my mother back home, and I’ll then buy myself a gold necklace.”

In sharp contrast to Melecio’s reaction, fellow Filipino national and Raffle Draw winner Eleanor found herself crying with gratitude when she found out about her win: “My sister-in-law called me in the middle of a dinner with my daughter and son-in-law. I had mixed emotions,” narrates the 53-year-old marketing administrative. Topping Eleanor’s list of things-to-do is to settle financial obligations. “I have a house loan I need to clear off. Then, I will save this money for my future grandchild – my only daughter is expecting her first baby and this money couldn’t have come knocking at my door at a more appropriate time,” says the proud grandmother-to-be.

“This was the first time I participated in 2022; I kept receiving SMS and in-app notifications reminding me to participate, so I thought why not. I will continue to participate in Mahzooz as I feel 2022 is my year,” concludes Eleanor. The 68th weekly live Mahzooz Grand Draw saw 39 winners share the AED 1,000,000 second prize, taking home AED 25,641 each.

The top prize of AED 10,000,000 is still up for grabs in the upcoming Grand Draw on 19 March 2022 at 9:00pm UAE time. Entrants can participate in the draw by registering via and purchasing a bottle of water for AED 35. Mahzooz is inclusive to all who are eligible.
