Thursday 29 August, 2013 - A Gracemere pensioner was shocked to discover he was $5,000 richer simply for registering his Gold Lotto entry to his Winners Circle card.
The local man was very surprised by his unexpected win in Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus Draw but said he couldn’t be happier.
“This money is just fantastic!” he exclaimed.
“It’s very timely so it will really help my wife and I,” he told a Golden Casket official.
Although the regular Gold Lotto player will use his windfall to pay some recent medical bills, he said that he will spoil himself a little bit first.
“Before I do anything I’ll be taking my wife for a special dinner to celebrate,” 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!”
