Mahzooz: Raffle Draw opens windows of hope for three lucky expats

18 November 2021, Dubai, UAE: Three lucky expats woke up richer by AED 100,000 each after winning in the last week’s Mahzooz Raffle Draw. The 51st weekly live Mahzooz draw saw a total of AED 1,732,600 given away as prize money. The winning Raffle IDs of 7793010, 7804178, and 7864939 belonged to Sinan, Nadeem, and Abdusammed, respectively.

The windfall arrived at an opportune moment for Iraqi national Sinan, whose mother requires knee surgery. “My Mahzooz win has been a godsend. My mother’s health and comfort has always been my priority. This money will get her the best treatment possible and ease her pain,” says the 43-year-old communication manager.

Besides being a caring son, Dubai-resident Sinan is also altruistic; he intends to donate 10 per cent of his prize money to charity: “When I took a nap on Saturday evening, I didn’t think I’d wake up to my friend’s call informing me I’ve won AED 100,000 on my very first try! This money is a gift I want to share with the less fortunate.”

Indian sales executive Nadeem shares Sinan’s commitment to pay it forward. After donating to charities that support people with mental illnesses, the 29-year-old Abu Dhabi resident will use his winnings to help his friends: “When I first came to the UAE, these friends helped me with a place to stay and food to eat. Now that I have enough money, I want to return the favour.”

The selfless friend is also ecstatic about the financial freedom his prize money brings him. “AED 100,000 is substantial – I can pay off loans I’d taken to get married and live a debt-free life at such a young age. It’s a dream come true,”

He adds: “Mahzooz provides an opportunity for individuals like me, from middle-class families, to fast-forward the process of turning our dreams into reality, all while donating bottles of water to charity. I love that Mahzooz mirrors my principle of lifting up others while you’re on the rise.”

Abdussamed, another Abu Dhabi-based Indian winner, is also thrilled about how the prize money will relieve him of economic burdens. “I’m going to pay off loans in India and start building my family our dream house,” says the 35-year-old driver.

“My annual leave next month will be extra special as I can splurge on my family in a way I haven’t during my 14 years of working in the UAE,” Abdussamed adds. All three winners expressed hope of winning the AED 10,000,000 top prize in upcoming Mahzooz Grand Draws. The 51st weekly live Mahzooz Grand Draw saw 29 winners share the AED 1,000,000 second prize, taking home AED 34,482 each. The top prize of AED 10,000,000 is still up for grabs.

Entrants can participate in both the Mahzooz Grand Draw and Raffle Draw by registering via and purchasing a bottle of water for AED 35. The next weekly live draw will be held on Saturday 20 November 2021 at 9:00pm UAE time. Mahzooz is inclusive to all who are eligible.
