GreenManGaming have had a loyalty scheme pending for some time and people have been wondering what the prizes would be as loyalty points were earnt and many speculations were made, however nobody expected that all prizes would be actually all AAA best seller titles for the month, and at least for it’s inaugural outing there are 5 prizes on offer with equal odds of winning and all of them are top selling titles on the site.

The games available to win in the wheel are as follows:

Monster Hunter World
Fallout 76
Assassins Creed Odyssey
Hitman 2
Just Cause 4

All of which have an even chance of winning and you can have a maximum of 3 entries at a cost of 100 greenbacks the loyalty points earnt on the site, the official word is that there should be one wheel of mystery per month at random intervals unannounced so it’s best to be part of the site and regular to know when it goes live and take part in the opportunity to get something, it’s hard to say if all future prizes will be as good but I presume that as this month all prizes on the wheel will be shown on the page along with the odds of winning each one, and the only way to gain entry is through the loyalty points on the site. There is always a chance that all of the rewards every month will be great titles, and perhaps be the top titles for each month as it goes live, but really who is to say as it could be any selection of items on the site and may even have chances of discounts as the prizes are discount codes to claim 100% off a purchase on the site and get your code.

My video shows my spins, I was a little enthusiastic and span my first one before starting recording not quite believing that you would definitely get the item, however it seems every spin is a winner, and whilst they’ve got limited supplies of codes so it’s a first come first served, as long as you’ve got the loyalty points to play you can get a good game, and the site itself usually has pretty good deals and bargains throughout the year, including at xmas where the seasonal sales not only had good discounts on selected titles but also included credit + packs that gifted out free games with the purchase of credit, and an encore 99p mystery code sale on some pretty good titles. All codes are legitimate direct from the publishers so the site is definitely to be trusted, and you might just see me in the forums, after all I’ve earnt all those points being active on the site.

I ended up winning monster hunter world, and just cause 4 (with a duplicate of that to gift, and would happily swap for assassins creed odyssey or hitman 2 if anyone ends up with a duplicate playing themselves.

Check out the Wheel of Mystery if you want to play and spin for yourself

In the past I have taken up try me free promotions, where it doesnt state you must be dissatisfied in order to recieve your money back, just to try the product for free send proof of purchase and you will get your money back. Well in the past I have taken up these offers and not recieved my money back, then of course as you have sent your reciept and your wrapper you no longer have the proof of purchase. Two of the companies which have offered this and not produced the funds were coca cola who make powerade, the product was a bit watery and not what I was expecting for the price paid. The other was the makers of aero who had a special try me promotion accross a number of chocolates they were producing, I noticed it on buying a pack of aero mint, it stated other chocolates which were on the try me free, some flavours Id not tried before so I picked them up to try, a couple of which I did not like at all, and still after sending my reciept etc they didnt send my funds back, so now I am put off trying products as part of a “try me free” promotion as I know that they never send the money back and are impossible to get in touch with as I have tried continuousely contacting powerade/coca cola and they do not respond, and how would I prove my purchase after Ive already sent off my wrapper and till reciept to them? Id much rather print off something from thier website and take the voucher into the store to try a product free than send off after purchase as a lot of manufacturers seem to not want to pay back thier promised “try me free” deals.

On a seperate matter yesterday I recieved a text from orange PAYG about yet another change to thier topup system, this time you no longer get the VAT saving you are now forced to pay the additional 2.5% vat regardless of whether you want to or not, and this goes into a fund for the purchase of a new phone… with £1 for every £10 you topup, of course this is more money than the VAT saving of 25p but if you think about how much a new phone costs, at least £100-£200 that would require topping up £1000-£2000 how long would that take for the average payg customer, if you are using that much credit you would surely be on a pay monthly plan with better deals and savings, imagine you top up £10 per month, thats at least 10-20 months before you could possibly have enough saved, who’s saying the system wont have changed by then? What happens to the funds you’ve saved up do you get them as a cash payout? Do you get them in credit? No I think orange would pocket it all themselves. And what about the majority of PAYG customers who would not use thier phone that frequently, a lot of people have payg as emergency phones etc where the credit is used infrequently and definately would not be topped up that often, especially with the credit crunch effecting even more people, I believe that less people would be topping up so much as to benefit from this deal.

Did they rewrite the end of the butterfly effect? I just saw it on tv last night, but the first time I saw it on tape the ending was different, in this one when he didnt have journals he watched a home movie and made sure he never spoke to the girl for everything to work out, when I watched it on tape round an ex’s when he was in the mental institution he went back to when he was in the womb and strangled himself with the ambilicle cord so that he wasnt born and couldnt ruin everything, Im guessing that ending was too dark for tv so they changed it? It makes you wonder was the ending different again at the movies? I think the bad ending works better as the one where everything works out is too open ended and doesnt explain how he is now perfectly fine even though every time he changed the past he became increasingly ill as his brain had even more thoughts crammed inside, by the end surely he had 80+ years of memories which would have drove him crazy like his father. I did wonder how the butterfly effect 2 would have worked, which I still havent seen, but it opens the possibility that it is him again trying to change things rather than someone else or his father, or a future child which would have been conceived as he killed himself before he was born and his parents may have tried again for a child. I know thats not associated with the main post of this blog but rather than write an entire article for it I thought Id post it on the end here.
