England Legend to Play Colossus Bets With the Rest of Us
England’s fourth highest ever goalscorer, Michael Own, has joined forces with a new player in the world of online and mobile sportsbooks, Colossus Bets.
The betting enthusiast, horse owner and former star striker – who retired at the end of last season after a spell with Stoke City – was excited by the new format offered by Colossus Bets, a format that offers huge prizes to its players.
Owen said: “The idea that football punters can win a weekly L10,000,000 prize for an outlay of as little as L2 is an incredibly attractive proposition,” he added. “For the first time, we have lottery-sized prizes available to be won on the sport I love.”
Colossus Bets has come on the scene with a brand new plan to get sports fans involved. Instead of a traditional sports bet, players take part in a pool bet, with a prize pool shared between the winners. This means, just as Michael Owen said, that you can get your hands on a huge payday for as little as GBP 2. That’s a pretty good offer.
With more and more bettors turning to Android and iPhone gambling, Colossus offers a mobile service to its users. With its rather different offer, it’ll be interesting to see if they can make inroads into the market in the UK.
According to Colossus Bets CEO Bernard Marantelli, Owen will be joining in with Colossus Bets throughout the process: playing in the pools, giving his picks and sharing his thoughts. The company will be hoping this signing will help them strike rich in the mobile sports betting market. Marantelli commented on Owen’s arrival: I am delighted that someone of his standing has seen the massive potential of Colossus Bets. e was a star for England, and he will be a star for Colossus Bets as our ambassador.”
