Emirates Loto: AED 35 million up for grabs with the region’s first fully digital collectable scheme and live draw
- First draw to take place on 18 April 2020 and to be presented by celebrity hosts Wissam Breidy and Aishwarya Ajit
5 April 2020, Dubai: The region’s first, fatwa-approved, fully digital collectable scheme with optional entry to a weekly live draw, Emirates Loto is a company like no other – an organisation that will change lives, of both winners and the general public, with its aim to donate millions of dirhams for the public good in line with UAE government initiatives to give back to the community and the country as a whole.
Emirates Loto is a collectables scheme with a live weekly draw and is open to all eligible people over 18 years old in the UAE and across the globe. The collectables may be purchased online and through the app, or in thousands of retail stores in the country for just AED 35.
“We are incredibly excited to be launching the region’s first fatwa-approved digital collectable scheme and draw,” said Paul Sebestyen, Chief Executive Officer. “The UAE, with its spirit and drive for innovation and entrepreneurship, was the most obvious choice to set up this initiative.”
Once the collectable is purchased, the buyer can, if they so choose, opt into a free live draw for a chance to win from AED 35 million to AED 50 million in jackpot prizes every week. On-line buyers also have the choice to donate their collectable to charity instead of arranging to have it delivered (at an additional cost).
If the purchaser does choose to opt-in to the draw, they will, using the Emirates Loto website or App, select six numbers from one to forty-nine. If three, four, five, or six of the numbers that have been selected for the draw match the six numbers randomly drawn by the Emirates Loto ball machine that week, they win a prize.
The prize depends on how many of the selected numbers are matched with the draw results in no particular sequence. If all six numbers match, the buyer can win a share in a minimum cash jackpot of AED 35 million, which will be divided equally amongst all winners. If five numbers match, they win a guaranteed AED 350,000 cash prize. Additionally, if four numbers match, the buyer wins AED 300 cash, and three numbers will give the buyer a free entry to the next draw. If no one matches the six numbers drawn, then the prize of AED 35 million increases by AED 5 million every week until it reaches the amount of AED 50 million. It will remain at AED 50 million until it is claimed.
Emirates Loto strives to change lives, and with that in mind, the prizes have been restructured to ensure that every single winner, who matches five out of six numbers, will now receive a life changing amount.
The first draw will take place on 18 April 2020 and will be streamed live across multiple digital platforms at 7:30PM Dubai time. The event will be hosted by Wissam Breidy, a Lebanese presenter and TV personality renowned across the Arab world, and Indian model, presenter, and entrepreneur Aishwarya Ajit.
“We are honoured to have both Wissam and Aishwarya take this exciting journey with us,” added Sebestyen. “Their natural charisma and energy are in the true spirit of what we stand for and is much needed relief in the current situation. We very much look forward to seeing their chemistry onscreen and how the audience will engage with them, and of course, congratulating our first winners!”
Continued Sebestyen “We realise these are difficult times for all, but we genuinely hope and believe that our new venture will bring much needed relief, happiness and more importantly funds for public good”.
