Colossus Syndicate Captain and his army of followers hold breath for £200,000 win tonightColossus 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 £1,024 ticket, the Syndicate need Chelsea to beat Watford by at least 2 goals tonight in order to win £200K. 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 £8.6K for a 20% 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 ‘crowdbetting’ 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.”
