DUBAI, UAE, June 3, 2021 — Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) appear to be ultra-lucky with Mahzooz, a United Arab Emirates (UAE) lottery that has now produced nine instant millionaires this year alone.

Remember the female OFW named “Wendy” who won UAE dirham (AED) worth 201,000 (around Php2.6 million) just last month of May?

It said Roland, who is a delivery driver and resident of Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital and the biggest emirate, was one of the two lucky winners of AED 1 million each in Mahzooz’s 27th weekly draw. Bettors take the prize for guessing and matching five out of six numbers.

“I’ve been participating in the draw from day one and I never lost hope. “I always knew my lucky day would come and when it came on Saturday, I couldn’t believe it.” — Roland

The lottery had AED 2 million rolled over prize for second prize. Roland, the ninth winner this year, shared equally the prize with the unnamed eighth lucky punter.

A Mahzooz aficionado for years, Roland, who works as a delivery driver for a cake shop, had an inkling that one day soon he would strike it rich.

“I’ve been participating in the draw from day one and I never lost hope,” said the 38-year-old. “I always knew my lucky day would come and when it came on Saturday, I couldn’t believe it. When I saw that my numbers matched, I was so excited that I couldn’t sleep. I even had to check my blood pressure the next morning! I never thought that I’d become a millionaire but now I know for sure that everything in life is possible.”

Roland plans to use his winnings to give his partner the wedding of her dreams.

“We have been talking about getting married for a long time and now we can finally afford it,” said Roland.

Additionally, after over 10 years in the UAE, Roland is excited at the chance to help his family back in the Philippines.

“I can finally buy land for my mother so she can build her dream home,” said Roland. “I also want to help out my brother. Ever since I was little, he’s supported me through everything – going to college, moving to the UAE. None of this would have been possible without him.”

As for Roland himself, he will keep trying his luck with Mahzooz and shared these words for other participants. “Don’t stop or you might miss your chance. Continue forward, keep your hopes, and one day you’ll be the lucky one.”

Along with Roland, an Emirati national also matched five out of six numbers and claimed AED 1,000,000. The two men shared the AED 2,000,000 second prize, which was doubled in accordance with the Rules of Mahzooz, after going unclaimed in the 26th draw.
