Nepali carwash man wins AED10M from Mahzooz

A 31-year-old Nepali based in United Arab Emirates had his life drastically changed overnight after matching five out of the five winning numbers during the 94th weekly draw of Mahzooz, the UAE’s leading weekly draw.

His lucky digits were 16, 27, 31, 37, and 42.

Bharat, who works as a carwash man and earns AED 1,300 a month, is the first Nepalese multi-millionaire to ever win such a massive prize, which is equivalent to over 345,000,000 Nepalese Rupees.

“The excitement is overwhelming. As I watched the live draw on Saturday night, I checked my numbers on the screen. It was impossible for me to sleep after that!,” said Bharat.

When asked what he will do with the prize money, Bharat humbly shared that he will use it to pay his debts and give his two children a good life.

“I am looking forward to paying off my mortgages and other bills as soon as possible. It’s important for me to set up the future of my two children aged 5 and 3 years old. This would be an incredible thing to be able to accomplish. This prize will enable me to achieve so much. It will change the lives of so many people!,” said Bharat.

Since Mahzooz started two years ago, Bharat has participated fervently without giving up hope that he would win one day.

Mahzooz has given away more than AED 280,000,000 in prize money. Between June and September, they have already crowned six millionaires; Bharat is their 28th millionaire.

“We have been seeing an unprecedent enthusiasm among the Nepalese community to regularly participate in Mahzooz in the hope of joining the league of winners. So far, over 3,200 lucky Nepalese participants have been among Mahzooz winners, 28 of which have scored the first and second prizes,” says Farid Samji, CEO of EWINGS, operator of Mahzooz at the press conference held to announce the latest winner.

The 94th weekly live Mahzooz draw also saw 41 winners share the second prize of AED 1,000,000 and 1,174 winners bag the third prize of AED 350 each. Additionally, three winners took home AED 300,000 in the raffle draw which features three guaranteed winners every week. The total prize money won in the 94th draw was AED 11,719,900.
