Colossus celebrates its sixth anniversary

Happy birthday to… us! Six years ago today the first Colossus pools went live and we haven’t looked back. Even within the last year we’ve made exciting progress and hit numerous milestones. Some highlights of our year include…

Racing

We recently completed our first full year of offering British and Irish horse racing pools. Our Place 6 pool took on the UK Tote Placepot with great success, winning clearly in 12 of 13 months and remaining unbeaten in the other, thanks to our Best Dividend Guaranteed promotion.

This week we also announced our brand new greyhound racing pools which are now live on site. The Win 4 and Win 8 will be the only multi-leg greyhound pools available in the UK. To make the experience as immersive for our players as possible, we will be live streaming every race featured in our pools free of charge!

We’ve also made waves over the pond though, having gained our tote license in Oregon and North Dakota and launching racing pools with our first US partner, AmWager. Further partner launches are planned for the coming months.

 

Sport

We‘ve launched our first esports pools with our partner, Estars and are set to launch our new fantasy MVP product in line with the upcoming NFL season.

Speaking of upcoming seasons, we also have NBA pools set to make a return as well as our new to launch NHL pools.

With the return of domestic football now imminent it promises to be another thrilling sporting year!

 

Slots

We launched our first Cash Out slot, Colossus Fracpot, with our new platform partner Microgaming before following that up with a second Cash Out slot in partnership with Matchbook, Fortunes of Arabia.

 

Conscious Colossus

This month we launched Conscious Colossus, a charitable initiative designed to target several areas of responsibility and covering a wide range of causes, including the advancement of sport within communities, responsible gambling education and animal welfare.

Our launch partners are Alive and Kicking, YGAM and The Greyhound Trust and we hope to expand the scheme in the coming months.


Work and Staff Events

We were US bound, jetting to New York, Boston and Tucson for various events to help spread the news of our US patents on Cash Out.

The Colossus fitness team continued to stay strong as they tackled team Spin and Body Pump classes. Half of the office are now members and on the road to fitnesss with the first team triathlon planned in September.
