South African expatriates Glen Lester and Rizwan Afzal are the latest winners of Emirates Draw in Dubai

Dubai: South African expatriates — Glen Lester and Rizwan Afzal — are two of the latest winners who bagged home Dh77,777 each in the latest Emirates Draw in Dubai.

Lester, 25, who has been living in Dubai for the past six years, intends to share a portion of his win with his brother and make some investments. He said about his win: “The day I was planning to participate, a 3-digit number kept repeating in my day on restaurant bills and then at the petrol station, so that’s the number I used along with four other random digits.”

For Afzal, 48, he will use the prize money to clear his debts and support his family back home. He said: “I feel so blessed and thankful for my first-ever big win in a draw. It has just been a few months that I got to know about Emirates Draw and started regularly participating.”
