A 20-year-old student from Middlesex University in Dubai has walked away with a AED 50,000 shopping spree at Mall of the Emirates after enjoying his favourite games at Magic Planet Mall of the Emirates.
Kourosh Pirnia is a regular at Magic Planet, where he entered the Magic Month competition on a recent visit with his friends.
“My friends and I have been to Magic Planet countless times, but the last time we went we were given tickets to enter the Magic Month draw. I thought I might as well enter but I never thought I would win,” says Pirnia.
The Business and Finance student was thrilled to find out the news about his win but initially thought the prize was too good to be true.
“When I first got the call I thought it was one of my friends pulling my leg and I didn’t believe him. So I actually went into Magic Planet and they confirmed that the winner had been drawn. I couldn’t believe it, it is really amazing,” he says.
Mr. Pirnia plans to treat his family to some presents as well as splurge a little of his 50,000 AED prize on himself.
“I will probably buy my family some things but if I do have some money left for myself I think I will treat myself to a new watch or some other luxury item – it’s not every day that a university student gets to do that!"
Commenting on the Magic Month promotion, Silvio Leidtke, General Manager, Family Entertainment Centres, Majid Al Futtaim Leisure, said, “We are constantly looking for ways to reward our loyal customers when they visit our centres, and are thrilled to be able to award such a great prize. I am sure Kourosh will have a great time on his ultimate shopping spree at the mall.”
Following his big win Kourosh Pirnia says he can’t wait to get back to Magic Planet again for more fun and excitement.
“I go there with my friends every couple of weeks, so I will definitely be back there soon, especially after my win!”
Magic Planet at Mall of the Emirates is also home to UAE’s first ‘4D’ simulator XD Theatre, an eight-seater virtual reality cinema and offers its visitors with various exciting and thrilling rides such as waveblaster, jumping star and redemption and video games for both children and adults.
