Dubai: Emirates Draw is closing 2021 with a “record setting” Grand Prize of Dh100 million.
The sum was announced on Saturday evening during its weekly broadcast as the grand prize (Dh95 million for this week) had once again gone unclaimed. This is “the only time that a grand prize in the UAE has reached such a sum”, Emirates Draw said.
Participants will have the opportunity to win the Dh100 million on January 1, 2022, by matching all seven numbers from right to left. Mohammad Al Awadhi, managing partner of Emirates Draw, said: “This prize money is unprecedented in the UAE and is serendipitously just in time for the New Year. We are eagerly hoping that someone will get to start off 2022 with the best news and take home the grand prize [this coming] Saturday.”
The company also announced the seven guaranteed winners of the weekly raffle draw who each took home Dh77,777.
Last week’s main draw winning seven-digit number was 0052239. In total, there were 552 winners and Dh643,804 in prize money shared amongst the winners.
