Hello everyone, Mr Green would like to introduce you to Brian…
You probably remember the “Transformers: Battle for Cybertron” promotion we had recently… if you don’t remember, the grand prize holiday to Universal Studios Resort World in Singapore or Florida may jog a few memories.
Well Brian H, our lucky Transformers winner from Wexford, Ireland has picked Singapore as his holiday destination of choice and is all set to travel this October. While Brian sits back and counts down the days, we’ve given him the Transformers Movie box set (does not include the classic 1986 animated movie… my personal favourite) and a travel guide to Singapore to pass the time.
We want to post more of your happy winning faces right here to keep Brian company, so keep your eyes peeled for upcoming offers and get ready to win!

It’s on Facebook, YouTube, even your local TV news, the phenomenon has everyone from regular Joes to A-List celebrities dumping buckets of iced water over their heads.
This is no ordinary internet craze though, the “Ice Bucket Challenge” is an effort to raise awareness around the world of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or as it’s more commonly known, “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. Participants must dump a bucket of ice cold water and then dare someone to do the same. If they can’t, the alternative is to donate $100 or local currency equivalent to the ALS Association.
Mr Green accepted the challenge AND made a €1,000 donation to the ALS Association, you can see the video for yourself below:
Mr Green nominates Owen Heary – Manager of Bohemian FC, Mikael Pawlo – Mr Green Co-Founder and the entire Green Team. You have 24 hours to complete the challenge or donate to the ALS Association… but why not do both, it’s for a good cause after all!

What is ALS?
ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons stretch from the brain to the spinal cord, and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually lead to the neurons death within the body. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
Want to take the Challenge? Here are the Rules
Within 24 hours of being challenged, participants are to video record themselves in continuous footage. First, they are to announce their acceptance of the challenge followed by pouring ice into a bucket of water. The bucket is then to be lifted overhead and poured over the participant’s head. Then the participant can call out a challenge to other people.
On Saturday 9th August, a Mr Green player from Norway broke open the MEGA FORTUNE safe and walked out of the Casino Playground into the sunset with a whopping £121,440!
You haven’t missed your chance though, so don’t fret! The mega jackpot is still up for grabs at a mental £1.3 Million! Our Norwegian Winner claimed the ‘major jackpot,’ which is definitely not something to be sneezed at. Congratulations!
