Pinoy Wins DSF Daily Mega Raffle
“It came as a huge surprise and the most beautiful thing about it was the timing, as I had just been informed by my office that my services were no longer needed. This will now help me build a new and happy life for me and my family,” Joel said.
The DSF Mega raffle costs 200 AED for one entry ticket and has been offering participants a chance to win tons of cash and prizes. The cost of the raffle may be a bit steep, but the rewards if you win is certainly a keep, especially for this lucky Filipino expat!
“I always had a feeling that I would win. I had been purchasing raffle tickets and participating in other raffle promotions in the previous editions of DSF, and now my dream has come true. I wish to thank Dubai and Dubai Shopping Festival for this unexpected fortune,” he said.
Joel plans to use the winnings to pay off his debts and join his family back home to start a new life.
