Maryborough pensioner receives $5,000 birthday surprise!

Wednesday 22 May, 2013 - A Maryborough man received the ultimate birthday surprise this week when he was told he was $5,000 richer thanks to Golden Casket’s Winners Circle Bonus Draw. 

“It really is the best news to get on your birthday,” the pensioner told a Golden Casket official. 

“I was just so shocked. I even went onto the website to double check. 

“I mean think about it, how often do you have someone call on your birthday and tell you that you won $5,000!” he exclaimed. 

The man said that having that little bit of extra cash will certainly give him less to worry about. 

“I’ll be able to use the money to buff up the bank account a bit.” 

The pensioner said that most of the money will go straight into savings but he will make sure that he buys himself a belated birthday gift. 

“With these kinds of wins you need to buy yourself something that you wouldn’t normally be able to. 

“For me that will be a really good bottle of scotch,” 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!”
