It's a game! And nobody forces it onto you; however, it does sound pretty good when it's advertised. This is how it works:

You buy your package for AED 30.-- at any supermarket, convenience store, money-exchange, etc. The package contains your tickets to win the millions and your postcards to send to your friends and family.

There are 2 tickets: one scratcher for instant prizes (we won some "miles" that we could collect till we have enough to redeem them), and one ticket containing the number for the weekly drawing. You text message your ticket numbers to the company to be entered. Then you text message again after the drawing to get the winning numbers (each text messages costs of course).

Well - we didn't win in the drawing. We also didn't have enough miles for a prize. But not to despair: EVERYBODY is a winner with the postcard millionaire game - you still have the postage prepaid postcards to send to your friends and family. Uhm.......these must be the ugliest postcards we've ever seen. If we'd send them to our family, we'd be disowned!!!

Sooooooo - unless you are hopeful of actually winning the millions, this is 30 AEDs that can be written off as "Stupid Tax".

All of this is of course only our opinion on the subject, and we might be completely wrong - if we are, please let us know what we missed here! Thank you!
:-D
