Twenty-six lucky winners scooped more than Dh76,000 each in Saturday’s live Mahzooz grand draw.

The second prize winnings, totalling Dh2 million, were shared among 26 people who matched four out of the five numbers.

Each second prize winner took home Dh76,923 each. The five winning numbers drawn on Saturday’s live show were 15, 26, 32, 40, and 48.

Although no one scooped the Dh10,000 jackpot, lady luck was on the side of three more residents from Australia, Pakistan and the Philippines.

All three bagged Dh100,000 each after matching the winning raffle IDs 14260231, 14367684 and 14321369.

Erasmo, a 44-year-old engineer from the Philippines, regular plays the raffle but never thought he would win such a big prize.

Erasmo, 44, from the Philippines won Dh100,000 in the Mahzooz draw.

“I got a call from my friend Mark on Saturday evening," he said.

"I didn’t believe him when he told me I had won Dh100,000, I thought it was a prank.

"When I verified the news, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was so overwhelmed and had goosebumps."

In total, 1,194 participants shared prize money totalling Dh2,707,750 during the 76th weekly live draw, including smaller prizes of Dh35 and Dh350.
