Tuesday October 14,2014 : BIG RETURN ON INVESTMENT FOR U.K. FOOTBALL PUNTERS
One gambler wins GBP 70,000 on a 40p stake….
Colossus Bets, which runs the GBP10 million Colossus football and sports jackpot gambling, has reported some spectacular results this week, which saw the first winners of the GBP 500,000 bonus leg in the GBP 1 million HDA15 football jackpot.
Barnsley’s come-from-behind win at home to Bradford saw six winning bonus leg tickets, the highlight of which was a ticket costing just 40p which added GBP 50,000 from the bonus leg to the GBP 20,000 already secured last weekend from the win fund jackpot.
Three other tickets also scooped GBP 50,000 each from the bonus fund and two tickets, both of which had been 50 percent cashed-in last week, won GBP 25,000 each.
Another player whose bonus leg selection was for the Yorkshire derby match to end in a draw, cashed-in half of the ticket before kick-off, to bank GBP 55,900 on what was ultimately a losing pick.
In total GBP 430,000 had already been scooped last weekend in the HDA15 win fund by the players who collectively added GBP 250,000 in the bonus leg, together with the GBP 55,900 cash-in.
Bernard Marantelli, Colossus Bets founder and CEO said: “It’s great to see punters turning small stakes into life-changing prizes – and a GBP 70,000 football jackpot from a 40p ticket is a fantastic achievement. Our Fractional Cash-In option has also been put to excellent use, enabling one player to take a big five figure sum off the table for half of his bonus pick before a ball was kicked in the bonus leg match.”
The GBP 1 million HDA15 is a weekly 15-leg pool bet with a Home-Draw-Away format comprising a minimum GBP 500,000 win fund and a minimum GBP 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 GBP 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 GBP 100,000).
Bets are available across all of Colossus Bets’ B2B partner sites, including BETDAQ, Betfair, Boylesports and Sportsbet.io, and is available through both desktop and mobile channels.
