As the region re-opens will there be a jackpot winner of AED 50 million?

4 June 2020, Dubai- UAE: Emirates Loto, the region’s first, fatwa-approved, fully digital collectables scheme with optional free entry to a weekly draw still has a huge AED 50 million up for grabs for collectable buyers over the weekend, following seven consecutive weeks of no jackpot winners to date. Just as the region begins to resume daily life as it once was, picking up a cool AED 50 million would be an incredible way to welcome the summer months of 2020. 

Last weekend saw as many as seven lucky UAE residents share AED 1 million, and 39-year-old Neeraj Tiwari claimed his prize while in quarantine in his home country India. Visiting his wife and two children, Neeraj entered the Emirates Loto draw before taking the trip and plans to share his winnings with his family.

Another six UAE residents including four Indian nationals, a UAE national and a Syrian also each took AED 142,857 home after matching five out of six numbers in last weekend’s draw.

For Muhand Nwaf Rezk, a 40-year-old Syrian executive director and a father of six, it was the first time he had ever won anything before and he plans to share his prize with his family and Emirates Red Crescent charity. Similarly, Sukhjinder Singh who originates from India entered the draw for the first time and won. Married with three children, he plans to build a new home in his native Punjab and donate to a local charity, Gurudwara.

Two more Indian UAE residents 35-year-old Arun Unnikrishna Pillai and 40-year-old Muneer Kunnath were both overjoyed to learn that they too had won a share of the AED 1 million prize. As for the sixth and seventh winners, an Indian national and an Emirati, they asked that their anonymity be respected.

The next live draw will take place at 9.00PM on Saturday 6 June and can be viewed live on www.emiratesloto.com, Emirates Loto’s social media platforms and on Asianetnews Facebook page.
