Murgon retiree receives $5,000 Christmas surprise

Tuesday 24 December, 2013 - A retired man from Murgon received an early Christmas surprise thanks to his $5,000 win in Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus Draw. 

The regular Gold Lotto player couldn’t believe his luck when he discovered he was $5,000 richer simply for registering his Gold Lotto entries to his Winners Circle card. 

“I didn’t see the draw so I was really shocked when I found out that I had won $5000,” he told a Golden Casket official. 

“It really is a nice surprise at this time of year though – just in time for Christmas,” he added. 

Although shocked by his windfall, the man knows what he will be buying himself for Christmas this year. 

“My yard is very large and it’s getting hard for me to get out there and mow it. 

“I’ve decided to buy myself a ride on lawn mower, just to make mowing the lawn a little easier,” he said smiling. 

“I know this is only a small win but it’s going to make such a difference to me this festive season!” he exclaimed. 

Every week, four 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!”
