Sharing her joy, she said, “Words cannot describe how excited I am to receive the draw. I did not believe my luck at first, and even asked my husband to call back to confirm. This prize money will help me realise my life's dream of providing my children with a brilliant education.”

A Bangladeshi worker, Jahiri Islam Kabir, was also lucky to win a AED100,000 prize during December.  

Sharing his excitement, he said, “This award is life-changing for me in so many ways. I never expected to win a prize worth over 2 million Bangladeshi Taka. With this money, I will be able to secure my parents' future back in Bangladesh.”

Shaker Zainal, Head of the Retail Banking Group, said, “Our retail customer base has grown significantly over the past year, and we continue to attract new customers due to diverse and innovative products and services mix.”
