DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, May 20, 2021 — It’s a case of “lightning strikes twice” for a lucky overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
And the OFW whose name is “Wendy” (her surname not mentioned, apparently for security) is now an instant millionaire for winning 201,000 UAE dirham (written as AED), which at Php13.05 to AED1 is worth around Php2,623,050.
A whopping amount anyway one looks at it, especially for an OFW who’s been sacrificing in far away lands for her family’s sustenance.
Immediately she thought of her daughter and her mother, committing to give her mother a share of her winnings and building a house.
Here’s her story sent exclusively to SDN — Science & Digital News as related by EWINGS, the managing operator of Mahzooz.
Dubai resident and Filipina expat Wendy was one of five lucky winners to take home AED 200,000 each in the 25th weekly live Mahzooz draw.
“I was driving with my friend during the draw and asked my brother to check the numbers for me. He mentioned I got four out of six. I was shocked and ecstatic to win the 1,000 dirhams.”
The lucky participants matched five out of six numbers and shared the AED 1 million second prize. However, there was an extra stroke of luck for Wendy as she had a second entry to the draw that matched four out of six numbers and scored her an extra AED 1,000.
“I’ve been participating from the very beginning along with my brother,” says the 41-year-old office manager. “I was driving with my friend during the draw and asked my brother to check the numbers for me. He mentioned I got four out of six. I was shocked and ecstatic to win the 1,000 dirhams.”
Then came the twist.
“As I was celebrating, my friend mentioned that on my other entry, I matched five numbers,” recalls Wendy. “I had to pull the car over to go online and check the results. I started crying and thinking to myself ‘is this really happening, is this really true’.”
For Wendy, calling this turn events life changing is an understatement.
“This money changes everything for me and my family. I can finally bring my daughter here from the Philippines,” says Wendy, who hasn’t seen her 8-year-old daughter in over two years due to Covid-related travel restrictions. “I usually go back once a year but with Covid-19 restrictions, I haven’t been able to go back the past two years.”
In addition to reuniting with her daughter, Wendy has earmarked this money to help her family.
“I will buy a house in the Philippines for my family, and I will give some money to my mom,” promises Wendy, who lives with her mother and brother.
Wendy, her family, and their enduring positivity are proof that good things happen.
“We felt very good and positive about the numbers we chose last week. Everyday we’d say around the house ‘don’t worry we’re going to win Mahzooz this week’,” recalls Wendy. “And we did.”
Additionally, the 25th Mahzooz draw featured four other big five out of six winners, all of whom took home their share of the AED 1 million second prize — AED 200,000 each.
