Doha Bank, one of the largest private commercial banks in Qatar, has announced the 20 winners of its Al Dana Savings Scheme’s monthly draw for November, at a community event that took place in the lively settings of the popular Souq Waqif, one of Qatar’s key landmarks.

Taking home the jaw-dropping mega cash prize of QAR 1,000,000, Ms. R. Fotedar was named the newest Al Dana millionaire during the highly-anticipated event, which was live streamed on Doha Bank’s social media platforms.

“I’m overwhelmed and grateful for this blessing. I would like to thank Qatar, its people and above all Doha Bank for giving me this life-changing opportunity.” Ms. R. Fotedar commented.

Mr. H. Al Abdulla won the QAR 100,000 cash prize. Ms. S. Al Majid walked away with the QAR 25,000 Young Saver Scholarship prize, and fifteen additional customers were awarded with QAR 10,000 each.

This month’s draws included the newly launched promotion offering Double Chances for every QAR 1,000, you get double chances in the draw and ‘6 Extra Chances to win QAR 1,000,000’ for customers keeping a minimum balance of QAR 25,000 into their Al Dana Savings Account.

Recently, the Al Dana monthly draw events have grown to become a fun-filled reason for families to come together for a day out at a prominent venue, with the November event featuring an exciting mix of complimentary activities for kids and grown-ups, including a face painting booth for the little ones, and henna sessions for the ladies. In addition, a raffle was held for the millionaire draw spectators, where two lucky winners each won one 5 gram gold coin each.

“The Al Dana Savings Scheme continues to change the lives of our savers on a monthly basis. It is a true joy to promote the habit of saving among our customers, and enable them to grow their earnings. To be able to double and triple their chances of winning, we encourage our customers to keep their Al Dana balances for as long as possible, and to take a credit card or loan against their deposit. It is this easy and convenient,” said Dr. R. Seetharaman, Group CEO, Doha Bank. “The more our customers save, the better their chances of winning life-changing prizes. Every QAR 1,000 saved in Al Dana account doubles the chances to win, subject to the minimum balances required for each draw. We invite all of our customers to get involved and make the most of this unique program,” he added.
