- Each winner took home AED 333,333
Three lucky winners walked away with AED 333,333 each in the 22nd weekly live Mahzooz draw. The lucky second prize winners matched five out of six numbers to split the AED 1,000,000 second prize. The winning numbers were 15, 21, 24, 37, 38 and 45.
Afsal who hails from Kerala, India has had a challenging year and winning with Mahzooz could not have come at a better time.
“I’ve been jobless for a year. So, this money has come at the right time. I will start a small business to ensure a sustainable income for me and my family. I’m planning to invest this winning to secure the future of my kids and my family. I will definitely support those who are out of a job because I’ve been there, and I know what it means and feels to be an unemployed family man,”
“I learned about Mahzooz from Facebook and newspapers in Kerala, and I have been participating regularly ever since. Mahzooz is a great draw because I can participate in it from anywhere in the world,” said the 38-year-old and father of two kids.
“I received a message from Mahzooz informing me that I had won but I couldn’t believe it. So, I logged in to my Mahzooz account and was shocked when I saw the amount. It took me a while to believe that I had won such a large sum of money,” recalled Afsal.
Afsal split the AED 1,000,000 second prize with two more winners: Khandrix from The Philippines, and Mohammed who hails from Egypt and has lived in the UAE since 2004.
Mohammed is a regular Mahzooz participant. “I’ve been participating in Mahzooz ever since it launched and have won the fourth prize multiple times previously. However, I recall that evening when I won big, I was suffering from a neck pain after Iftar, and before I went to take a pain killer, it came to my mind to check my Mahzooz account to see what happened in the latest draw,” said Mohammed.
“When I checked my account, I was shocked. It took a while for the win to sink in. As a treasurer, I am used to seeing big numbers, but this was a different story. I cannot describe my feelings; I was instantly overwhelmed with happiness and my neck pain vanished!” he added.
“This win will help me tremendously in my daily life, I will pay off my credit cards and be able to support my family in Egypt. Thanks to Mahzooz, I’m now able to bring joy to my family, friends, and those who are in need especially during this holy month of Ramadan. I’m also planning to donate some money to cancer patients in Egypt,”
“I used to think of Mahzooz as a weekly live draw only, but now I know that it’s much more than that. Mahzooz is truly a life-changing opportunity, but you have to be in it to win it,” concluded Mohammed.
For those who missed out on last week’s live draw, entrants can participate in Mahzooz by registering via and purchasing Al Emarat bottles of water. Each bottle of water purchased provides eligibility for one line in the draw and the donation is channelled through Mahzooz’s community partners to hydrate those in need.
The next draw will be held as scheduled on Saturday 1st May 2021 at 9:00pm UAE time. Mahzooz is inclusive to all who are eligible.
