An Indian, Saravanan Rajamani, has proved himself to be luckier than the thousands of Emirates 24|7 readers, who entered the draw for the 'Win Dh1,000 each for free' raffle.
Rajamani had entered the draw from Twitter entry page. The winner, who lives in Dubai and works in Abu Dhabi, when informed of his win, said: "I have won something for the first time in the past 7 years living here in Dubai. I follow your news daily and thank you very much".
The competition is now closed, but it will return in March with thousands of more dirhams to be won next month.
Earlier, swamped by requests and submissions, Emirates 24|7 had decided to extend the 'Win Thousands of Dirhams' offer for its readers.
Rajamani joins three earlier lucky winners of Dh1,000 each.
Nauman Khan, from Pakistan, who has already received his Dh1,000 in Sharaf DG vouchers, said: "Thank you so much for choosing me".
The third winner is Fatima, from Yemen. "Thank you. My daughter Reem is lucky for me, she is 5 years old as I had entered her name in the draw. Thanks a lot," she said when informed.
The first winner of the Dh1,000 a week offer from Emirates 24|7 had earlier been picked up by a random computer-based draw.
Edemar Divinagracia, 41-year-old man from the Phillipines, has been living in the UAE for the past 10 years. He works in Abu Dhabi.
"Very happy to be the lucky winner. I follow your news everyday on my mobile mostly and [am] very satisfied with the content. I like to find exclusive news on E24|7 as I dont see them published by others. I am very excited," said Divingracia on hearing the news of his winning.
