Dubai: Emirates Draw’s FAST5 game last Saturday saw India’s Manoj Bhavsar and Nepal’s Rajgir Das emerge as winners.

Manoj Bhavsar, a 42-year-old electronics technician from Mumbai who has called Abu Dhabi his home for 16 years, faced financial challenges and endless sleepless nights. However, in early 2023, his life took a turn for the better when he discovered Emirates Draw through friends.

From that moment, he began participating in all three Emirates Draw games on a weekly basis. What set his number selection apart was the fact that he closed his eyes every time, choosing his numbers randomly. His unique way paid off when he won Dh75,000 in the FAST5 raffle.

“I called my mother as soon as I received the congratulatory email, but I kept the news a secret for a while. Instead, I asked her to watch the Live draw stream, and the moment she saw my name on the screen she yelled with joy,” Bhavsar said.

With his winnings, he plans to finally settle the debt that burdened him for the past two years, bringing him the peace of mind he longed for, thanks to Emirates Draw.

Heavy machine operator gets lucky

Rajgir Das, a Nepali, works as a heavy machinery operator in Dammam, Saudi Aabia. On November 1, he bought his first Emirates Draw ticket, and three days later, he became one of FAST5’s Guaranteed Prize Winners, taking home Dh50,000.

From Majhaulia village, Das has spent nine years in Saudi Arabia, dreaming of a better future for his family back home. With his win, he can finally secure their future.

“We didn’t have land or house; we were struggling to find a place to live. With this win, I’ll be able to buy land, build a house, and do everything!” said the married father of two.

The day after his Dh50,000 win, he won again with the MEGA7 draw. He is determined to keep playing and chasing his dreams.
