Close call for Emirates Draw winner, narrowly missing Dh100m
A resident from Italy fell just one digit short of winning the astounding Dh100 million ($27.3 million) jackpot in the Emirates Draw held last Sunday. Despite the disappointment of missing out on the grand prize, Andrea Bellanti managed to secure Dh250,000, which somewhat alleviated his sorrow. Emirates Draw announced on Thursday that Mr. Bellanti received the news of his fortunate turn while enjoying his vacation near Venice. Overwhelmed with joy, he exclaimed, "This surprise is truly unbelievable and has made my holiday a thousand times more enjoyable." Now, his aspirations involve treating his partner to a lavish getaway using the winnings. Among the 11,928 fortunate individuals who participated in the three draws of the previous weekend, Mr. Bellanti was just one of the beneficiaries who collectively received a sum of Dh941,367.
