Two more Filipinos living and working in the Middle East have recently won themselves AED100,000 or approximately AED1.4 million from the latest Mahzooz draw.
Allan and Norwin were among the three raffle winners.
Allan, a 34-year-old Filipino expat living in Oman for the past six years, never imagined that he would walk away with such a large amount of money. He was tending to his chores at home when his friends and colleagues sent text messages informing him that he had won. Allan was left speechless and didn’t believe it until he verified his Mahzooz account. A frequent participant of Mahzooz for the past four months, Allan believes in perseverance and luck. He plans on using a significant portion of the winnings to build a house and establish a small business in the Philippines.
According to Norwin, a fellow 41-year-old mechanical technician and father of four, the AED 100,000 prize money would help him, and his family pay off his debts and start a business in the Philippines. Norwin who has spent the last 15 years living in the UAE, commented: "I'm ecstatic! This is a sizable chunk of money, that I never imagined would receive.”
The other winner, 32-year-old Indian Mohammad has lived in the UAE for only two years. He will finally realize aspirations of getting married this year and furnishing his house with the appliances he had dreamed to own. Overjoyed with his win, Mohammad wants to reward himself with a new smartphone to celebrate his triumph.
