Indian expat wins AED 100,000 in lucky draw ahead of wedding

Mohammed will soon be able to have his dream wedding. And, his AED 100,000 win at this week's Mahzooz draw will go a long way in making that dream come true.

The Indian expat, who runs a perfume and accessories shop in Dubai, is thankful that the win has come at the right time. 

"As you know weddings are very expensive. I am very happy that I have won this money at the right time. Besides, my marriage expenses, I would also like to gift my mother gold," he added.

Mohammed also plans to invest some of the cash into his business. 

Hailing from Kerala, he started out as a sales associate in a perfume shop. After working for five years, he saved up enough to invest in a shop and become a partner in the business.

Mohammed recalled how he couldn't believe he had won. "I wasn't home when the Mahzooz Draw was going on. It was when I reached home and connected to Wi-Fi, that I got an email notification from Mahzooz stating that I had won!"

Two other expats from Syria and Mauritius also won AED 100,000 each in the weekly Raffle Draw.

A total prize money worth AED 3,105,350 was distributed among 2,365 winners, with 61 lucky winners sharing AED 2,000,000.
