Friday 18 January, 2013 - A New Beith family has had an exciting start to 2013 with a surprise $5,000 win in Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus Draw.
Although the winning father is a regular Gold Lotto player and was aware of the weekly Winners Circle Bonus Draw, he never imagined that he would win it.
“I was very surprised when I got the phone call!” the winning father exclaimed.
“I had a thought that it might be a hoax,” he added.
The man was very pleased when he confirmed with Golden Casket that the prize was in fact real.
The family will use their surprise windfall for a holiday next Christmas – something they are all looking forward to.
“Winning this money has just paid for our family holiday to Tasmania so I’m pretty happy,” the winning father said.
Every week, four lucky Winners Circle card members each receive $5,000 simply for purchasing Golden Casket products using their card. All registered Golden Casket players automatically receive one entry into the weekly Bonus Draw for every dollar they spend using their Winners Circle card.
Golden Casket’s Public Relations Manager Elissa Lewis says that the Bonus Draws are not the only benefits that Winners Circle membership provides to players.
“Not only do customers have the opportunity to win $5,000 each week just for purchasing lotto products and registering their tickets to their Winners Circle card, but they also have the peace of mind that they’ll never miss out on their winnings,” Ms Lewis said.
“Another important benefit is that if your numbers do come up we can contact you directly the next business day with the life changing news of a first division win!”
