A British man has landed the Dh1 million grand prize in the latest Mahzooz draw.

Kristofer, 36, a familiar face in professional football circles but currently working in the oil and gas industry, has been living in Dubai for eight years.

The draw on August 27 was not the first time his numbers have been picked. The UK citizen has won 12 times already.

"Every week I take part in Mahzooz draws, because you can't win if you're not in it," the father of two said.

Another lucky participant to have won the draw more than once was Seng-Boon from Singapore, who, along with 19 others, received a share of Dh200,000.

It was not quite the windfall he received in 2021, however, when he won Dh1 million.

"The feeling of winning again after being made a millionaire in 2021 is surreal," Seng-Boon said. "Mahzooz has changed my life in so many ways, which is why I continued to participate and I'm delighted to have won again."

A Pakistani salesman also counted himself among the lucky winners this week.

Muhammad, 39, received Dh50,000 in the form of 22-carat gold coins as part of Mahzooz's fourth golden summer draw.

The weekly Mahzooz draw each Saturday gives entrants a chance to win the top prize of Dh20 million by matching all five numbers and a weekly raffle that ensures one person wins at least Dh1 million.
