Colossus Bets returns to ICE 2017 with a partner network that has more than tripled since last year’s event to now include 30 operators and 7 platform partners, and plenty of innovation news to share.

Bernard Marantelli, the firm’s CEO and founder comments: “We set out to be ‘Colossus’ and we took our namesakes seriously. It is well understood that size matters in sports pools and we are the only provider that offers guarantees at a level that competes with lotteries worldwide and are eager to take on the full risk. As a result, we are putting forward a truly global, risk-free proposition for our partners. As for technological horsepower, our unique, patented cash out and partial cash out has been ‘making waves’ in sports pools and beyond. Our performance this past year amounts to going live with a new partner every 2 weeks, which casually sets a new benchmark for the entire gaming industry.”

Recent product launches from the firm include a customisable ‘free bet’ marketing interface into ‘real money’ Colossus pools, branded as the FreePlay+, as well as a ‘syndicates’ extension of the core product that allows users to crowdfund tickets into Colossus pools. The firm has also expanded an earlier pilot of cash out on racing pools into a fully-fledged product. Marantelli added: “While achieving a stellar year from a business development standpoint, we’ve also managed to evolve our core product and make significant additions to our portfolio, most notably with FreePlay+, Colossus Syndicates and cash out on racing pools. We look forward to sharing these developments at our stand.”

Colossus Bets will be at stand S1-312.
