Here's a nice story to cheer up your day.

An American lady called Bernice Gursch who goes by the name "Aunt B" won more than $10,000 at bingo just two weeks after her 100th birthday at the end of May.

Talk about a double whammy celebration!

Her win at the bingo hall in Aliante Station, Las Vegas was the culmination of a two-week birthday celebration, her family said, according to a report in the Las Vegas Review Journal.

"My aunt can't lift her arms very high, but when she won, both arms flew over her head," her nephew and caretaker George Pfeiffer said.
