While the top prize of AED 10,000,000 was shared equally by two winners from India and the Philippines, whose details will soon be announced after the completion of all necessary paperwork and verification process, the second prize of AED 1,000,000 was distributed among 139 winners.

The 3 raffle draw winners, who each received AED 100,000, are all from India and intend to improve the fortunes of their families with their big win.
Binu, a 46-year-old father of two who has lived in the UAE for the past 16 years, found out about his win on Sunday when he got a call from EWINGS, managing operator of Mahzooz. Since November 2021, Binu has been taking part in the weekly draw once or twice a month after learning about Mahzooz through his colleagues.
'I do not even know how to express my gratitude and appreciation to Mahzooz for this unexpected prize. This is the first time in my life that I have ever won anything. My colleagues introduced me to Mahzooz, and I'd like to thank them for that” says Binu.
Sathish, a 31-year-old family man who has lived in the UAE for the past 11 years, works as an administrative assistant for a private company. Sathish was shocked to find that he had won when his boss told him about his major victory.
Despite his proven luck, Sathish is still unable to believe his winning. “I didn't expect to be among the raffle winners because I had only played Mahzooz three times since my friend introduced me to it in July 2021”. Sathish also has not decided what to do with his big win as he is still coming to terms with the fact that he won.
Last but not least is Mohamed, a 37-year-old father of two who has been a UAE resident for 12 years. Mohamed learned of his win during the live show on Saturday. Mohamed plans to pay off his financial obligations and save some money for his family in the future. 'Having heard about Mahzooz from my friend, I have been participating in the draw very frequently, but I never imagined I would win such a large prize. It will undoubtedly transform my life and I want to thank Mahzooz for this incredible prize,” Mohamed comments.
