1st May2020, Dubai: Emirates Loto, the region’s first, fatwa-approved, fully digital collectable scheme with optional free entry to a weekly draw has a whopping AED 45 million up for grabs for collectible buyers this weekend, following two consecutive weeks of no jackpot winners.

Last weekend saw two lucky Dubai residents from the Philippines and India share the AED 1 million cash prize by matching five numbers out of six with the winning draw results; both winners opted to keep their privacy after learning that they had won the huge sum on Emirates Loto’s second weekend in operation.

Mohammed Khaled was the first lucky winner of AED 350,000 on the Emirates Loto inaugural draw, as the only collectible buyer to win a large sum on its first ever weekend of play.

A telecommunications engineer who moved from his native India to Dubai over two decades ago, Mohammed chose to split his winnings with his family and donate to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Her Highness Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum’s ‘10 million Ramadan’ meals campaign.

The next live draw will take place at 10.00PM on Saturday 2 May and can be viewed live on Emirates Loto’s website and soial media platforms.
