ARARAT – Ollie Hustler never expected to walk away $10,000 richer when she visited the Ararat Bowls Club last Friday afternoon for a leisurely game of bingo.

Ms Hustler couldn’t believe her luck when all 15 of her numbers came up and she won the jackpot on Big Bucks Bingo – The largest linked bingo game in Australia.
“It was really lovely, but it took me a long time to realise I had won it and I still can’t really believe it,” Ms Hustler said.
“I was just happy with winning money for the price of the game and then all of a sudden the lights started flashing and I was wondering what was going on.
“I have been playing bingo for 26 years and never had a big win like this.”
Ms Hustler said she had already decided what the $10,000 would go towards.
“I haven’t had a new lounge suite in many years so I am going to buy a new one and also have the bathroom done up,” she said.
“It is money I have never ever had before!”
Ms Hustler said her daughter would travel back to Ararat from Melbourne to help her pick out the lounge suite and whatever money she has left will be put towards her family.
“I have been in Tattslotto ever since it started and I did say that if I ever won any money I would give some to Sharon and Brendan, so I am sticking to that too,” she said.
