Speaking to Mahzooz, Adnan said he is still coming to terms with his big win and has not informed his family members or made any plans, but it has become a topic of discussion among his friends, who have now joined Mahzooz hoping that they would become millionaires.

“I always buy two water bottles, for every draw and this time was no different. What was different this week, is my luck. I will continue to participate in Mahzooz hoping that one day, I will be the winner of the top prize of $2.7 million (Dh10 million),” said Adnan.

Also claiming his part of the jackpot was Yasir, a 36-year-old customer service executive from Australia, who considers his holiday in Dubai to be his lucky charm because he became acquainted with Mahzooz while on vacation in the UAE.

He also won in the draw on January 21.
