Our Future - Where we're going
Bernard Marantelli, CEO
Founded in 2012, we are the provider of the world's biggest sporting jackpots, with the ‘£5,000,000 Colossus Pick 7’ Football predictor being our headline game alongside our industry changing 'Syndicates' product. We think sports jackpots will rival lotteries in the future, as more customers seek to join the thrill of sport with a dream big win.
Since Colossus Bets launched, alongside Football we have added Tennis, NBA and NFL pools to our portfolio, and we did not stop there. As of summer 2018 we have been running modern Horse Racing pools and will soon be branching out further into areas such as E-Sports.
We operate our own website, as well as hosting products with a number of leading gambling operators, headed by the likes of Betfair in the UK and Betway in Africa.
Core to our philosophy is giving the customer fair value and our Partial Cash Out feature gives players control of their own destiny.
World-domination is our plan, making our million pound plus pools a leader in the sports betting and lottery market for years to come, with innovation being at the heart of what sets us apart. But where do graduates fit in? We are a young company and recognise that graduates are the key to our growth and development.
As a start-up, our graduates can learn and progress more quickly here; we offer more responsibility, trust and hands-on training than bigger firms with a larger intake and team. Check out our corporate website for more information on what drives Colossus forward. https://corporate.colossusbets.com/
