Two Filipinos who also won the lottery say the ‘huge’ sum will change their lives
Allen, Muhammad and Novin
Mohammad, a 32-year-old employee of the Indian office in the UAE, was probably the best day of his life when he learned that he had won Dh100,000 at Mahzooz last weekend.
Thanks to the win, the expat says he may finally get his wish to get married this year and decorate his house with the appliances he’s dreamed of owning. However, Mohamed first said he would celebrate his victory by rewarding himself with a new smartphone.
The latest Mahzooz Super Saturday also saw two Filipinos win Dh100,000 each as raffle winners.
Allen, a 34-year-old Filipino expatriate who has lived in Oman for six years, never imagined that he would leave with such a large sum of money.
He was at home doing chores when his friends and colleagues texted him that he had won the prize. Alan was speechless and didn’t believe it until he verified his Mahzooz account. He plans to use a large portion of his winnings to build a house and start a small business in the Philippines.
According to Norwin, a 41-year-old mechanical technician and father of four, the Dh100,000 bonus will help him and his family pay off debt and start a business. “I’m ecstatic! It’s a huge amount of money that I never thought I’d receive,” said the expat, who has lived in the UAE for the past 15 years.
Entrants can participate in Mahzooz by registering through its website and purchasing a bottle of water for Dh35, which enables them to enter multiple prize draws.
