About Colossus Bets

Founder and CEO Bernard Marantelli is a professional gambler, who after winning significant sums from multi-leg bets around the world, decided jackpot pools were not run optimally. After failing to convince incumbent operators to improve their product offering to generate bigger pools, he set up Colossus Bets to provide lottery-sized jackpot pools on a weekly basis.

On May 31st 2014 Bernard lead one of three syndicates to share a world record £5.4m Scoop6 bonus, after sharing a £10,000,000 pool eight ways the previous week.

The world’s biggest bet, ‘The £10,000,000 Colossus’ is a seven leg correct score football game offered weekly.  Colossus Bets also offers a series of other multi-million pound pools based on correct scores and a suite of correct outcome (Home/Draw/Away) games.

Colossus Bets is currently developing multi-million pounds games for NFL/NBA/horseracing/greyhounds/AFL and ARL.

About Fractional Cash-In

Colossus Bets goes beyond offering the world’s biggest guaranteed pools; through unique technology, it allows players to Cash-In all or part of their multi-leg bets at virtually any stage of a game. This enables players to bank profits from their ticket whilst retaining part of it and playing for a corresponding share of the Jackpot prize.
