Friday 24 January, 2014 - A couple from Yamanto will treat themselves to a Tasmanian holiday thanks to their $5,000 win in Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus Draw.
The winning man told Golden Casket that the couple were astounded by their unexpected windfall.
“It’s a really pleasant surprise!” he exclaimed.
The local said he watched the televised draw and saw the couple’s initials and suburb on the screen.
“I saw Yamanto on the TV screen and realised our initials matched. I wasn’t sure if the card number was ours so I memorised the last four digits and told my wife to run and grab our Winners Circle card,” he laughed.
Prior to their win, the couple were unaware that four people win $5,000 every week just for registering their entries to their Winners Circle card.
“To be honest, we didn’t pay too much attention to the draw before our card number was drawn. After it did we thought, ‘It would definitely pay to look into this!’”
The regular lotto players will use their $5000 win to travel to Tasmania for a long-awaited holiday.
“We are just really looking forward to finally taking a break,” the winning man said excitedly.
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!”
