Dubai: Two players won Dh500,000 each in the first Ramadan draw of Emirates Loto, the region’s “first, fatwa-approved, fully digital collectable scheme” with optional free entry to a weekly draw.

The two winners matched five out of six numbers in the live draw on Saturday night. Also, 93 players collected a cash prize of Dh300 each and 1,805 entrants won a free play for the next draw.

The Emirates Loto winning jackpot numbers were 24, 41, 4, 16, 18, and 23. As there was no winner for the Dh40 million jackpot, the winnings will be increased to Dh45 million for next weekend’s draw.

Entrants can buy an Emirates Loto collectable and choose to opt-in to the draw by selecting six numbers from one to forty-nine. Players can register from home via the Emirates Loto website, www.emiratesloto.com, or mobile app. The next draw will be held on May 2 at 10pm.
