To mark the occasion of the 92nd Saudi Arabia National Day, Emirates Draw shares an endearing story of Karma Zahran’s win. A Saudi Arabian expat who regularly participated in the weekly draw in hopes of winning and living the Dubai dream. In honour of the National day and our Saudi participants across the world, the leading gaming operator and socially responsible organisation extend its warmest greetings to the Kingdom and its citizens.
Karma Zahran has lived in Dubai, UAE, for the past ten years and is an Interior Design Professional specialising in creating unique restaurant concepts and designs across the GCC and Europe. The 35-year-old heard about Emirates Draw from her uncle, who has been a weekly participant in the draw since its inception. She thought to herself, why not try her luck? That could mean skipping her lunch for one day each week, which is equivalent to her monthly tickets! Just like that, Zahran would buy her tickets each month and await the good news.
However, the much-awaited news did not take that long until a few months back when she was away in Italy with some friends. While enjoying dinner one night, she fondly narrates, “I checked my phone and saw an email about winning, and I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was the first time I ever won in a draw! I won the raffle for AED 77,777 with Emirates Draw MEGA7. I quickly stood up, and as all the glasses dropped from the table, I yelled I won, I won, I won! It was a fascinating and memorable moment that genuinely transformed my life!”
Karma, like any other, wanted to create an ideal future for herself and her husband to live the Dubai dream for a better tomorrow. As hard as people work sometimes to live that dream, it is still not enough, and it is fortunate to have her better half supporting her in Dubai, she confirms. The prize money created a sense of financial security that would help in establishing a comfortable environment to start a family. As well as providing their children with the same opportunities their parents gave them.
The AED 100 Million Grand Prize, the largest in the MENA region, remains up for grabs to be claimed by a single person or group of people who match all seven numbers from the right. Participants have another opportunity to try for the life-changing prize during the next draw set to broadcast on Sunday, 25th September 2022, at 9 PM UAE time.
