Gyan, a Nepalese expat in Oman, is one of the three raffle winners. The 49-year-old father of two who works at a gas plant in Oman, received a phone call from his daughter in Dubai informing him of his win. Gyan was introduced to Mahzooz by his daughter, who is a regular participant, and finally decided to participate for the first time last Saturday.

Gyan plans to use his windfall to start his own business in Nepal and to provide a better education for his children.

Wedding expenses

Sameer, an Indian graphic designer who has spent the last six years working in Saudi Arabia, had read the congratulatory email from Mahzooz. “This is a tremendous milestone for me; I feel very grateful to have won... This money will help me with my upcoming wedding expenses.”

The 32-year-old also plans to use his winnings to pay off his debt and secure some investments.
