In the third edition of the Emirates Loto draw held on Saturday, May 2, three participants matched five of the six chosen numbers and therefore won Dhs1m, split equally among them.

The winning combination of numbers were 6, 17, 20, 27, 32 and 39.

In the first edition of the lottery, an Indian expat in Dubai won Dhs350,000 while in the second round, an Indian and a Filipino expat won Dhs500,000 each.

The fatwa-approved Emirates Loto draw takes place every Saturday with the results livestreamed across multiple platforms including the Emirates Loto’s website and social media platforms at 10pm UAE time.

Those who wish to participate must purchase a collectable card priced at Dhs35 via the lottery’s website, or select stores in the UAE, and choose six numbers between 1-49.

If a player matches three of the six numbers chosen during the weekly live draw, they win a free entry.

In the May 2 lottery, 2,180 participants won a free entry to the next draw.

If a player matches four numbers, they win a cash prize of Dhs300.

Emirates Loto said that 122 players won a Dhs300 cash prize based on the May 2 results.

Those with five matching numbers stand to have the amount of Dhs1m split equally among them, as was the case with the three participants.

The lucky player/players with six matching numbers will win the bumper prize of Dhs35m, divided equally between all those with the winning combination.

That jackpot prize meanwhile is increased in increments of Dhs5m if it isn’t claimed in any given draw until it reaches a cap of Dhs50m where it will remain until it is claimed.

No one has yet won the jackpot prize. As a result, the jackpot prize has been raised to Dhs50m for the next edition of the draw expected to take place on Saturday, May 9.
