Tuesday 19 February, 2013 - A Camira woman could not contain her excitement this week after winning $5,000 in Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus Draw.
“We are so grateful, it’s just amazing,” the winning woman told a Golden Casket official.
“Winning $5000 was definitely a shock.
“I just didn’t expect to win $5,000 in a bonus draw!”
The woman missed watching the weekly draw on television and as a result discovered the news of her $5,000 windfall when contacted by Golden Casket.
“I’m usually at home when the draw is on but this particular week my husband and I were out at dinner.
“Plus my two boys were playing the Xbox so there was definitely no chance for anyone to watch it.”
The woman said she will use the money to pay some bills, buy a brand new bed and a new flat screen television.
“There are a few things we need and some bills due so this windfall has come at the perfect time.
“My husband and I have been playing Gold Lotto for years and we’ve won a few times over the years.
“I have to say that everytime we win, it’s always at the right moment, just when we need it.
“It’s always just the right amount too!”
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!”
