Law and luck share nothing in common, but in the case of Jeddah-based lawyer Jawaher Alamoudi, it proved absolutely wrong.
In the heart of the Red Sea port city, the young lawyer never thought, even in her wildest dreams, that a draw conducted in a distant land would make her a millionaire.
The 30-year-old, who had never visited the UAE, recently emerged as the latest $1 million winner of the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire draw, creating excitement in her hometown.

Jawaher's windfall was not just a stroke of luck; she firmly believes it to be a divine blessing. "I believe my victory is a blessing from God, not luck. Only he knows how hard I prayed for this," Jawaher was quoted as saying in a media report.

Though she had never been to the UAE, Jawaher expressed her determination to explore its beauty and charm first hand. "I have not visited the UAE before, but after this win, I will visit it one day," she said.

Recalling her journey, Jawaher shared a time not too long ago when she earnestly scouted for ways to realise her dream of earning a million. Among the various options she explored globally, an attractive opportunity in Dubai captured her attention. As a Gulf woman, she felt a sense of confidence and comfort with the idea.

"I felt safe that it's a UAE-based draw," Jawaher said, emphasising the connection she felt with the Gulf region. Intrigued by the prospect of participating online, she took a leap of faith and bought two tickets with her hard-earned money, hoping for a miraculous outcome.

An active participant in Dubai Duty Free's promotions for a year, Jawaher had anticipated a stroke of good fortune. On December 20, 2023, during the Dubai Duty Free 40th Anniversary, she decided to try her luck and bought two tickets online for the Millennium Millionaire Series 446 and 447. Fate favoured series 447, and ticket number 3174 proved to be the golden key to her life-changing win.

The expectation leading up to the draw had been intense, and on January 17, Jawaher's life took an unexpected turn. When the news of her million-dollar win reached her, she could not contain her joy and cried tears of happiness for an entire hour.
For Jawaher, the win was more than just financial prosperity; it was the realisation of a long-cherished dream to buy a house for her family and bring happiness into their lives. Winning the million-dollar prize meant she could turn that dream into a reality.

Sometimes life's most extraordinary blessings come when you least expect them – even from a draw in a faraway land, and Jawaher Alamoudi's story illustrates it emphatically.
