Dubai: Two female expatriates from Sri Lanka and Bosnia and Herzegovina were part of the batch that won Dh77,777 each in the latest round of Emirates Draw.

Subaddara Kankanamalage Thanuja, 52, a mother of two, lit up with joy after confirming her win. She said: “It was such a lovely surprise. When I first saw the email from Emirates Draw, I didn’t believe it, but when I showed my children, they encouraged me to check the website and when we saw my name, my family immediately began celebrating.”
