The good fortune of the youngest winner in the promotion caught both her mother and the promotion organizers by surprise. Four year old Shouq Aman had no idea just how many people would have wished to be in her shoes. "We have been trying our luck since the beginning of the promotion. We have put in at least 20 raffle coupons. This is the first time we have won something in a raffle. I cannot believe it!" Said Shouq's mother just moments after she had leant of her daughter's good fortune.
Hazeena Mazood on the other hand met with her good luck on her first attempt. "My husband was waiting for me in the car when I went to pick up a few things from the mall. He was a little upset because I had kept him waiting too long and I had not carried my mobile phone." She said. "When I got the call from DSMG I was very excited. I have been in Dubai for 17 years now and I have never tried the raffle promotion. It is a very good feeling to win and I will definitely buy my husband something special"
Ting Ting Bobadilla, a Philippine national did not know she had taken her first trip to Dubai to meet with her good fortune. "I have never been to Dubai before and I was really excited to make my first visit. I was buying a watch as a gift to my husband who was celebrating his birthday in Dubai, after paying for the watch the Rivoli agent told me that I could join the DSMG raffle in the mall. I wrote the coupons not expecting anything because millions are joining the promotion. I forgot about it and travelled back to the Philippines.. When I got a call, I was very happy and excited to go to Dubai again to collect my prize. We will go back to Dubai with my two children on Christmas day to collect the prize and shop again"
Maryam Ruiz, an American national and one of the lucky shoppers said she will put aside some of the money for her children's tuition. "My children are in college and I will put away some of the money for their tuition. I will then buy something for my family with the rest of it" She said.
