Now the man will buy a house in India.
In Saudi Arabia, an Indian immigrant named Pradeep won the Mahzooz lottery jackpot of $270,000. Now he can take part in a super game with a reward of $5.45 million.
According to Alarabiya News, Pradeep has been living and working in Saudi Arabia for over 15 years and he only tried to play Mahzooz twice before hitting the jackpot.
According to Pradeep, he will buy a house in India with the money won.
“A dream come true. I wanted to buy a house in India and was delayed in the process of applying for a loan, so this money will help make my life much easier,” the man boasted.
In the same draw, 27 participants matched four of the five numbers and shared the second prize of $54.4, receiving approximately $2,000 each.
