A Chermside West woman confessed she had some trouble believing she was one of the five players who took home $5,000 in a recent Golden Casket Weekly Bonus Draw.

When we spoke to the woman after the prize had hit her bank account, she revealed how she had come to terms with her win.

“When I was told I had won $5,000, I really just didn’t believe it! I thought it was a hoax!” she exclaimed.

“At the time I shared the news with my son who was home with me but I still didn’t really believe it.

“He encouraged me to check the results online and under the Winners Circle section I saw my initials and member number.

“It was such a nice surprise!”

When we asked the north Brisbane local what she planned to do with her win, the happy woman knew exactly how she’d spend her prize.

“My husband and I have been wanting to get new front doors for our home,” she shared.

“We have been talking about it for such a long time and now we have the spare cash to do it!”
