The Guinness High Rollerz competition kicked off in October and has been generating significant interest in the public domain.

Twenty-eight winners have been chosen to date. Of these, 25 will walk away with $5,000 each, the third-place winner will get a SZ16 bike, second place a double-door stainless steel fridge full of Guinness, and the first-place winner a Yamaha FZ6R motorbike.

There are three more draws to go and many more winners to be chosen. World-leading motorcycle brand, Yamaha, has taken centre stage in a Guinness High Rollerz Christmas promotion, as eight lucky winners will each ride away FZ6R 600 cc and SZ16 150 cc motorbikes, all fully insured for one year.

"Of the eight motorcycles that are being away in the Guinness promotion, four are the FZ6R model for first-prize winners, while four are SZ16 motorbikes to be given as third prizes," Racquel Nevins, Guinness brand manager, explained.

Just last week, Kerry Ann McBean, a grocery shop owner in St Mary, was surprised with a fridge full of Guinness stout, as a second-prize winner.

"I feel so great about Guinness and the competition. Blessed with this lovely fridge. Don't even have words to explain," she commented.

This week, a first-prize winner was ecstatic when she walked away with a brand new motorbike.

Navine White is a Portmore native who works at a liquor store. She has had some luck with Guinness, as she has won a cash prize from the brand in a previous competition. She admits that she was determined to win. She entered at least 60 times and dropped her entries at MegaMart, Portmore, and Hi-Lo Supermarket. White was surprised with a brand new Yamaha bike last Friday, when the Guinness team visited her in Spanish Town.

"I love my prize. I believe I was bound to get it, which is why I entered so many times. I don't know how to ride, but I plan to learn," White said.

"I love Guinness and the parties they have. I got my love of Guinness from my mother who drinks Guinness all the time," she explained.

"There are many more prizes to be won and time to enter, so grab six bottle caps and enter before the promotion ends," Nevins urged.
