Gold Coaster celebrates unexpected cash win

A Gold Coast man has pocketed $5000 after his numbers appeared in a recent Golden Casket Winners Circle Weekly Bonus Draw.

The anonymous winner from Ashmore has been playing lotto for “donkey’s years”, and said he was grateful for his unexpected win.

“I’m happy enough just to get the money I spent on my entry back. Five thousand bucks is brilliant!” the winning man said.


“I haven’t yet decided how I’ll spend the money, but I know it will come in very handy-especially this time of year as Christmas approaches.

“Now I know what it feels like to win, I’ll keep playing my regular games and hopefully the next cheque will have a few more zeros on it!”

The winning entry was purchased from Benowa Gardens Newsagency.
