WHAT a dream!
Two Dubai expats take home a share of a AED1 million prize, all thanks to Emirates Loto.
The UAE residents, from Syria and Pakistan, successfully matched five out of six numbers, meaning they both will receive a cheque for AED500,000 after Saturday’s draw.
In case you missed it, this is the region’s FIRST digital Loto with a jackpot worth AED50 million up for grabs. You can get involved simply by purchasing the ‘Collectable(s)’ (from AED35) online via the Emirates Loto website or app, available on both the App Store & Google Play.
“I have never won a draw before in my life.”
“I have always thought there is no chance of winning these types of draws”
Rojeh Alfreh, who has lived in the UAE since 2007, admitted this is the first draw he has ever won in his life and he genuinely believed he had no chance of winning. Originally from Syria, he was shocked by the win, stating the prize is life-changing. Rojeh said he will use the money to support the community and will save some of it too.
“I will do my part to support those in need in my community and save the rest. Family always comes first and there is no better way to spend the money than putting it towards supporting them.”
You can watch the Loto live every week on Emirates Loto’s website and social media platforms

Muhammad Khalid from Pakistan thought the win was a prank!
The 36-year-old Pakistani, who also won AED500,000, did not believe how lucky he was when he first found out. He said he’s never won anything in his life and had to double-check the app to believe it was true. Particularly amid this worrisome global situation, the win could not have come at a better time. He will put some of the money into charitable causes he can support.
“At first I thought it was a prank. It was only when I checked the app that I realized it to be true. I’ve never won anything before in my life, but Emirates Loto has such a low price of entry into the draw and everyone should try their luck. I am looking forward to do some research on charities and good causes I can support.”
So far there has been no jackpot winners, meaning AED50 MILLION is up for grabs again this Saturday
