- Both lucky winners plan to use the money to help their families back home
- To date, Mahzooz has had over 28,000 Indian winners
Two Keralites took home INR 4,965,000 each in the 28th weekly live Mahzooz draw. The two lucky participants matched five out of six numbers and, along with two other winners, shared the INR 19,860,000 second prize.
Anthony, 36, has been in the UAE for over 13 years but still thinks of his family in Kerala.
“I love the UAE, it feels like home,” said the Dubai resident. “It means a lot to me to live here and be able to support my family. Now with the Covid-19 pandemic, lots of families have been affected where I’m from, and it is very difficult for many people to find a job during this hard time. In addition to supporting my family, I plan to use my winnings to give back to my community,”
Anthony has participated in the Mahzooz draw since the beginning but this was his first time getting lucky.
“When I got the winning email, I was surprised,” recalled the Keralite. “It’s still hard to believe but I’m getting there.”
Renjith, a 38-year-old Keralite, intends to clear his loans and use the rest of his winnings to help his family and friends back home.
“It’s a tough time for everyone but now, thanks to Mahzooz, all my problems are solved,” said Renjith.
“I am grateful to Mahzooz and recommend to everyone that they keep participating and never give up,” concluded Renjith.
To date, Mahzooz has had over 28,000 Indian winners, with many hailing from Kerala. Combined they have won over INR 238,320,000.
