PUNTERS LAND £1,000,000 HDA15

PUNTERS LAND £1,000,000 HDA15


London, October 5th 2014

COLOSSUS BETS, home of the £10,000,000 Colossus and the world’s biggest football and sports jackpots, today confirmed the first WINNERS of its £1,000,000 HDA in just the 8th weekend the bet has been offered.

After last week’s near miss with one player getting 14 out of 15 and turning down a Fractional Cash-In offer of £320,000 in the process, this week 2.5 tickets have gone one better and scooped the pool.

Each full ticket receives £200,000 for their £2 stake, (£20,000 for those that staked only 20p), a return which is significantly bigger than a bookmaker equivalent acca on the same matches.

Additionally each player has a free pick at the £500,000 bonus pot which will require them to nail the correct outcome in next Sunday’s 3pm TV match between Barnsley v Bradford.

Colossus Bets COO David O’Reilly said: “Sure lots of favourites won, but winning £20,000 for a 40p spend which one player has managed, is some feat. There was no Cash-Ins done on that ticket – maybe the player slept through the later legs on Sunday and will wake up to a pleasant surprise Monday morning!”

Several of the other winning tickets banked profits along the way with our Fractional Cash-In option, though none of the winning ticket holders cashed-in fully and all of them hold at least 50% of their original ticket. Sunday’s League One match will take on an unusual interest as they try and add some of the £500,000 bonus to their current winnings.

The £1,000,000 HDA15 is a weekly 15 leg pool bet with a Home/Draw/Away or 1X2 format comprising a minimum £500,000 win fund and a minimum £500,000 bonus – both numbers net of deductions. Any winners of the win fund will have a free pick on the outcome of one further football match the following week, to try and land the £500,000 bonus.

A full unit costs players just £2, but like all Colossus pools, the HDA15 can be played for as little as 20p (which buys a 0.1 unit and plays for a proportional £100,000).

The next £1,000,000 HDA15 kicks off this Saturday with a selection of the weekend’s lower English leagues fixtures and the bet is also available across all of Colossus Bets’ B2B partner sites, including BETDAQ, Betfair, Boylesports and

The £1,000,000 HDA15 is available on on both Desktop/Web as well as a customized smartphone and tablet experience on Mobile Web.

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.
