For the first time ever, the “grand prize" of Dhs50,000,000 has been won in the 48th weekly live Mahzooz draw, which took place last night at the Mahzooz UAE Studio.

The winner, 36-year old Pakistani expat Junaid, will be awarded next Thursday. The Pakistani expat has 4 brothers and a sister. He has two children, a son and a daughter, back in Pakistan.

Junaid earns Dhs6,000 per month as a driver in local company, and lives in a sharing accommodation in a villa. He was brought up in the UAE. His father owns a tailor shop here in the UAE.

He got a call yesterday (Sunday) in the morning and is still in a state of shock and thrilled over the news.

“Now I won a huge amount of Dhs50 million and comes with huge responsibility. I will buy a huge house in Dubai and also buy in Pakistan,” Junaid said.

He added, "When my family heard this they screamed and started jumping and dancing."

EWINGS, the managing operator of Mahzooz, saw one exceptionally fortunate participant land the grand prize of Dhs50,000,000.
