Filipino frontliner in UAE wins AED100,000 in Mahzooz draw


- Advertisment -

An Abu Dhabi-based Filipino frontliner was among the 10 participants who matched five out of six winning numbers for the AED1 million prize in the recently concluded Mahzooz draw. 

Hannibal, not his real name, took home a total of AED100,000 or P1.37 million after sharing the prize pot with the 10 other winners, which is composed of five other overseas Filipino workers (OFWs). 

The Zamboangueno who works as an Abu Dhabi Emergency Medical Service (EMS) staff matched the following numbers: 3, 6, 9, 11, 23, and 43. 

“First time kong nanalo ng ganito. Ever since ay naglalaro na ako, lotto pa nga sa Pilipinas,” the OFW who has been working in the UAE for 15 years already told GMA News Online. 

“Ito ang pinakamalaki kong nakuha. Na-miss ko lang yung isa pang number. Kung nakuha ko lahat, bye-bye na talaga,” he said, referring to finally going to the Philippines for good. 

If he had matched six digits, he would have walked away with AED1 million or some P13.9 million.

Hannibal said that he had previously won three times at the same raffle draw, however ‘puro balik-taya lang.’ 

The OFW’s job includes facilitating the transport of Covid-19 patients to hospitals during the height if the pandemic last year. He said that he will use the money to help secure his kids’ education. 

According to the report, 18 Filipinos have so far won big in just five months. 

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
