“I am planning to buy a luxury apartment with a view of The Palm in Dubai,” said Engin, a Turkish expat living in Dubai, after winning the grand prize of Dh10 Million at the 81st Mahzooz Draw.

“This (win) will change my life, and my family's life immensely,” he added.

Engin received a call from the Mahzooz team a few days ago and was surprised. “I was speechless. I even found it difficult to announce it to my wife,” said Engin.

A civil engineer with a private company in Dubai for the last two years, Engin has been participating in draws ever since he arrived in the UAE. He has been participating in the Mahzooz draw since March 2021. “I play with the numbers depending on my mood, but this time, I was surprised (by my choice),” said Engin.

The 33-year-old expat does not plan to not quit his job and says he will continue working. Apart from buying an apartment, Engin also wants to give back to society. “I will help deserving students and provide them with scholarships,” he said.

Engin's winning five numbers were 13, 30, 38, 41, 44. “Financially, I feel comfortable after winning the Dh10 million prize,” he concluded.

Four others have won the Dh10 million Mahzooz draw before, including Hamdi (a French-Tunisian expat), Thinakar and Rama (Indians), and a Filipino expat, Paterio.

Farid Samji, CEO of EWINGS, said: “To date, we have created 23 multi-millionaires in just over two years, and I am delighted that we are continually changing peoples’ lives for the better."

“I take this opportunity to congratulate Engin and his family. I am absolutely thrilled that he is now actually living the Mahzooz dream,” added Samji.

To participate in the draw register via and purchase a bottle of water for Dh35. For each bottle purchased, participants are eligible for one line in the Mahzooz Grand Draw. They will automatically be entered into the weekly raffle draw where three lucky winners will take home Dh100,000 each.
