"Every little bit helps" for Bracken Ridge pensioner

Wednesday 9 October, 2013 - A pensioner from Bracken Ridge has received a $5,000 surprise thanks to Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus Draw. 

The excited winner couldn’t believe his luck when he discovered he was $5,000 richer simply for registering his Gold Lotto entry to his Winners Circle card. 

“It was a big shock, but when you’re my age and you win anything it’s just fantastic!” he exclaimed. 

“It’s better than being poked in the eye with a sharp stick,” he playfully added. 

The regular Gold Lotto player admitted that most of his windfall will remain in the bank for the moment. 

“Every little bit helps, especially when you’re a pensioner,” he told a Golden Casket official. 

“This money can stay in the bank so that my wife and I will be able to use it when we need to. Although, I’m due for some new glasses so I will probably buy those first. 

“I still have all my teeth so at least I won’t have to worry about that,” he laughed. 

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!”
