Colossus Syndicate Captain holds breath for GBP 200,000 win

Colossus Syndicate Captain TwoPoundPunt is set to lead his 190 Syndicate contributors to glory tonight.  

Having entered the Colossus Pick 20 Asian Handicap pool with a crowdfunded GBP 1,024 (US$1322) ticket, the Syndicate need Chelsea to beat Watford by at least 2 goals tonight in order to win GBP 200,000.

This would be the single biggest payout so far for the 3-month old Colossus Syndicates, the social betting extension of Colossus sports pools. The Syndicate have already banked GBP 8,600 for a 20 percent Cash Out of their ticket so they won’t be walking away empty-handed regardless of tonight’s outcome.

TwoPoundPunt has a strong track record of success with Colossus Syndicates and now enjoys a star following, his Syndicates sometimes taking only seconds to be filled. Looking forward to tonight’s match, he commented: “I was an early adopter of Colossus’ innovative ‘crowd betting’ solution and I saw it developing into a strong network in a matter of weeks. Tonight is going to be exciting but either way, the big win is just a matter of time.”

Bernard Marantelli, Colossus Bets CEO and Founder added: “Colossus Syndicates has already surpassed our expectations in terms of popularity among regular sports bettors and newcomers alike. We are currently working on a number of enhancements for the new season, including a leaderboard to augment the social element of the product.”
