Hillcrest pensioner receives $5,000 surprise!

Wednesday 1 May, 2013 - A Hillcrest pensioner will have a little less to stress about this year thanks to his win in Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus Draw. 

The man was shocked when he discovered he was one of four lucky winners who each won $5,000 in the weekly bonus draw. 

“I was just so surprised when I got the call that I had won,” he told a Golden Casket Official. 

“That kind of thing is pretty hard to believe,” he added. 

The regular lotto player doesn’t have any extravagant plans for his prize money but will just hold onto the $5,000 for now. 

“Being on a pension can be difficult at times so I’ll be able to put this money in the bank for anything I may need in the future. “It will just be a relief to know it’s there,” he said. 

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!”
