Dubai: Ramanathan, a 35-year-old sales manager living in India, was overjoyed after receiving an email from Mahzooz informing him he just won in the raffle draw. He and two other lucky participants won Dh100,000 each.

He said: “Every Saturday night I check my email to see if I’ve received good news from Mahzooz. It finally happened!”

The regular Mahzooz participant, who has previously won Dh35 thrice, said he will donate a portion of his winnings to charity. “As I won during Ramadan, I want to pass on my blessings by helping others. I will invest the remainder in real estate,” he said.

Ramanathan also commended the ease of participating in Mahzooz. “The fact that anyone from around the world can participate is so great,” he noted, adding: “I only matched two numbers in the grand draw, but the raffle draw unlocked my luck. And now, with the additional Ramadan Mega Raffle Draw happening at the end of April.

The Dubai-based IT sales manager from Jordan plans on spending his Dh100,000 winnings on his family. He shared: “I’m going to use some of it to help my family back home, and the rest to take my kids and wife on a European vacation this summer.”
