Mohammad Bitar, Deputy Chief Executive Of­ficer of Al Ansari Exchange, said, "This was a challenging year for everyone, and as a way to thank our loyal customers, we have gone ahead with our 'Millionaire Promotion'. Congratula­tions to our new millionaire and to all the win­ners. We were truly overwhelmed this year by the number of participants. We would like to thank the Department of Economic Develop­ment, Bank Al Falah, our sponsors for this promo­tion, and of course our valuable customers, for their continued support."

Nina Elmina Sanchez, the grand prize winner, said, "I have been in the UAE for only a year, and the last thing I expected was to become a mil­lionaire. What a great start to 2021. Thank you Al Ansari Exchange for giving me this opportu­nity and changing my life."
