COLOSSUS BETS, home of the £10,000,000 Colossus and the world’s biggest football and sports jackpots, was last night announced as ‘Rising Star’ winner at the EGR Operator Awards. Colossus Bets is delighted to receive this recognition from the industry.

Bernard Marantelli, founder and CEO of Colossus Bets said, “It is a privilege to receive this award after being live for less than 18 months and we would like to thank our forward thinking partners BETDAQ, Betfair, Boylesports and the other future partners currently integrating our revolutionary pools and thus helping make us the industry’s rising star.

In addition to our B2C offering we are live with 4 B2B partners already, with 12 more signed across Asia, Europe and Africa and at various stages of development. This is also a week which has seen our biggest Pick 4 rollover pool with a £310,000 pot and we expect 2015 will see our pools offered globally, driving liquidity and growth of the world’s first truly lotto-sized sports pool”.

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.
