Three UAE nationals were among the winners at the 95th Mahzooz draw, when 22 people won and split the second prize of Dh 1 million. Thrilled Emiratis Saood, Naser, and Nasir took home Dh 45,454 each.

Over 6,000 UAE nationals have won more than Dh 5 million in prize money in the past two years.

As soon as Saood, Naser and Nasir were informed about their winnings, they celebrated with small yet wholesome family gatherings. Although they frequently participated in the draw, this was the first prize they had ever won, and they were overwhelmed with gratitude when they found out.

"I have participated in Mahzooz several times, almost regularly, but I thought I was unlikely to win", said 43-year-old Saood. "Upon hearing that I was a winner of Dh 45,454, I was pleasantly surprised."

Nasir, the second lucky winner, expressed similar sentiments, saying: "I chose my numbers randomly with no expectations, figuring my chances might be slim. It is a privilege to be a winner, and I am grateful to Mahzooz for this opportunity,”

The third winner, Naser, added: "As an aspiring investor and father of three children, this prize is a thoughtful gift for us and will help me in my upcoming endeavours."

A new batch of 1,381 winners, announced on Saturday, September 24, received Dh 1,774,600 in prize money – including three fortunate expats, who walked away with a whopping Dh 100,000 each after winning the weekly raffle draw prizes.
