Fujairah: Mahzooz Saturday Millions on Wednesday introduced its 64th millionaire who had just bagged Dh20,000,000 in its 154th draws on November 11.
The winner Sreeju works as a control room operator in the oil and gas industry in the UAE. Originally from India, the 39-year-old has been living and working in Fujairah, UAE, for the past 11 years. The news of his incredible win reached him while he was at work on Saturday evening, adding an unexpected twist to his weekend.
“I was speechless, shocked and surprised to know that I won, not just a prize, but the top prize. I was in my car about to drive around when I checked my Mahzooz account, and I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was confused about what to do when I saw my winnings. I waited for that call from Mahzooz to confirm that my winning was true.” he recollected.
“I’ve been participating in Mahzooz from the beginning, for the past three years, twice every month. I never skipped a month because the hope that I will win someday kept me going. I did not expect to be a winner this time, at least not the Dh20 million,” he added.
The father of twin six-year-olds, now faces the delightful challenge of deciding how to utilise his newfound wealth. When asked about his plans, he expressed his desire to make his dream come true by purchasing a home in India without any financial liabilities. However, he hasn’t finalised his plans for the remaining winnings.
Suzan Kazzi, Head of Communications and CSR, Mahzooz, said: “To date, our weekly draws have created 64 millionaires, and distributed close to half a billion dirhams to more than 1,107,000 winners, adding an incredibly positive spin to their stories of victory.”
