Friday 10 May, 2013 - A Caloundra grandmother was left frozen by shock on her chair this week after being told she was $5,000 richer thanks to Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus Draw.
The regular Gold Lotto player had heard of the draw before but never expected that she would win $5,000.
“I was so shocked and surprised when I found out!” she exclaimed.
“It definitely took a while to sink in. I guess I’m still finding it hard to believe,” she told a Golden Casket official.
The woman hasn’t decided what she will spend her windfall on but thinks she might follow the advice her children gave her.
“My kids told me to make sure that I spoil myself so I think I may just do that,” she said.
“Although I will probably keep the money in the bank for a while, just to be safe,” she added.
The local said that her $5,000 win will definitely make life easier.
“It’s such a relief to know that I won’t have to stress about the budget or bills for a while.”
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!”
