Thursday 20 June, 2013 - A retired couple from Kilkivan are now $5,000 richer thanks to Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus draw.
When a Golden Casket official asked if they were surprised by the win, the man said that they just couldn’t believe it.
“Bloody oath it was a surprise! A good one though,” he exclaimed.
“I actually watched the draw on Saturday night and noticed our suburb was listed.
“I remember thinking it was weird that someone from Kilkivan had won, so I wrote down the last few digits of the listed card number.
“I couldn’t believe it when I realised the numbers matched!”
The couple haven’t decided what they’ll spend the money on but said that some of the $5,000 will be used for household expenses.
“We’re not quite sure where the money will go at this point but just knowing that we have that bit extra is a great feeling!” the winner 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!”
