On the last day of the month-long Dubai shopping festival, three-year-old Asmaa Mattar Sultan won a Nissan Qashqai after her father entered her name in the Nissan Grand Raffle.

She’s still too young to celebrate her win but her win has bought joy to her family.

It was a happy moment for her dad Mattar Sultan who works for Dubai Police.

He recalled how he had got the raffle coupons after buying things worth Dh40 for his daughters at the Enoc petrol station in Dubai’s Mirdif area.

Sultan has two daughters – Asma and Mira. Sultan said he always writes their names on raffle coupons.

He has been participating in DSF raffles for three years now but had never won anything before until now.

Sultan plans to sell the vehicle and lock the money in a bank account in his daughter’s name. “When she is old enough, she can decide what to do with it.”

The Nissan Grand Raffle is among several winning opportunities presented by DSF 2013 and gives shoppers the chance to drive home one of 12 different Nissan models.

Shoppers can choose one from 12 models - Micra Hatchback, Sunny, Altima and Maxima Sedans, Qashqai, Murano, Patrol, Juke, Xterra, Pathfinder, Armada SUVs, and 370Z Sports Coupe.

Shoppers got a chance to enter the draw for every Dh20 spent on non-fuel purchases at Enoc and Eppco petrol stations or for every Dh200 spent at participating retail outlets.
