Register for Betting on Football to find out! We have Bernard Marantelli, CEO and Founder of Colossus Bets, as part of our Game Time panel, discussing advancements in live betting products.


Which Football club do you support?

Leicester (this year) and Arsenal if I am with my son, but to be honest I don’t follow football.

How do you judge their season so far?

It is a good year to support the Foxes and Gunners – I think they have the Premier League sewn up between them!

How does your role with Colossus Bets involve you in both Betting and Football?

Colossus essentially specializes in offering lotto-sized prizes on football (and increasingly other sports) via the world’s only truly global pools. In addition to having lotto-sized prizes we offer partial cash-out at half time and full time of every leg, providing a sticky in-play experience.

It is Euro Millions on steroids decided on football instead of random balls coming out of a drum, so football is a massive part of our company and culture.

Why did you want to speak at Betting on Football 2016?

It was a very good conference last year, and in the last 12 months Colossus Bets has grown dramatically, so it felt like a good time to talk about the growth of our company and the future of innovation in soccer betting globally.

What will you be discussing on your panel session?

I expect to be covering ‘instant’ betting, daily fantasy sports, partial-cash-out, Colossus Pools, and the unstoppable juggernaut of football betting generally. Hopefully the audience will interrogate me and we can have some interesting banter.

What are you most excited about ahead of the conference?

I found last year’s networking was exceptional. I’m looking forward to meeting people in the audience as well as on the panels, whether they be potential business partners, innovators, staff or anyone interesting who wants to talk betting with me.
