Dubai: A 42-year-old British expat in Dubai was one of two winners to claim a share of the Dh 1,000,000 second prize in the Mahzooz draw on Saturday night. A resident of the United Arab Emirates for almost 16 years, Mimi (who does not want to give her full name) will use the award to cement her future in the UAE.
“I might be from London, but I consider the UAE my home and want to stay here for the rest of my life. I feel very patriotic and grateful to live in such a wonderful country, ”said Mimi. “I’m extremely lucky and it’s a fantastic feeling. I am so grateful.
Having entered the weekly raffle since its inception, Mimi continued to play every weekend while off duty as an office manager. “Money doesn’t buy happiness, but I would say that money can bring comfort and an element of security in a person’s life. That’s what it’s going to do for me and my family, ”added Mimi.
Asked about the first thing Mimi will buy with her winnings, she immediately replied: “Prada Adidas Limited Edition sneakers!”
For those who did not participate in this week’s raffle, participants can participate in Mahzooz by registering through mahzooz.ae and purchasing Al Emarat water bottles. Each bottle of water purchased (for AED 35) qualifies for one line in the raffle and the donation is channeled through Mahzooz partners to hydrate those in need. The next draw will take place as scheduled on Saturday, January 16, 2021 at 9:00 p.m. UAE time. Mahzooz is inclusive for everyone who qualifies.
