It is against the law for those under the age of 18 to gamble and Colossus Bets takes its responsibility to prevent underage gambling seriously. We carry out age verification checks on all players and may ask for documentary proof of age where our background checks are inconclusive.
Anyone under the age of 18 found to be gambling with Colossus Bets will have their account closed and any winnings forfeited.
If you suspect that someone under the age of 18 is gambling with Colossus Bets please Contact Us to report this.
