Emirates Draw Winners: American Husband & Wife celeberate long awaited reunion with purchase of new car

Dubai, January 20th ,2022: 61 year old American expatriate, Michael Moses, had only won AED 77 twice with Emirates Draw before he saw the winner confirmation email in his inbox this past Sunday night, he almost dimissed it until he spotted the trail of sevens with the corner of his eye as he was about to close his browser. When viewing the email once again he realized that he had infact won AED 77,777 and was ecstatic, immediately informing his wife in the US that he had won a substantial amount. Messages to his friends soon followed excitedly proclaiming that he was the first American to win with Emirates Draw; a fact that the organization confirms.

Having resided in Abu Dhabi for the past 17 years Moses and his wife have 3 adult children, a sparky Jack Russell terrier named Lucy and a few grand-children. However as many expatriates have experienced across the board, Michael and his wife have been apart for the past 17 years; punctuated with visits back to the US every 6 months or as regularly as possible. 

As fortune would have it Mrs Moses is about to retire from serving and will be joining Michael in the near future here in Abu Dhabi. Speaking about their much longed for reunion and well-earned retirement,  Michael is unabashedly excited about the next phase of their life and finally being together without impediment.

“I’ve been playing Emirates Draw fairly regularly always choosing my own numbers. When I saw the winner’s confirmation email I did a double take because I’d won AED 77 twice before, but then I saw that it was much more than that and I was just so surprised! The timing couldn’t be better as my wife has decided to retire and after 17 years of being apart she will come join me here in the UAE. Our children are grown and they have children of their own and we are incredibly happy about this but I’ve promised my wife that when she comes she won’t have to use my car (a 2003 Chevrolet Lumina she’s somewhat affectionately or unaffectionately nicknamed The Beast). Instead I am going to buy a small SUV such as a KIA Sportage for her to use and hopefully we will retire here by the beach.”

He continued, “We are both looking forward to exploring everything this great country has to offer with our dog Lucy. I feel really great about being the first American to win with Emirates Draw and I’ve told everybody I know that they can win too!”
