Punters only need to stake £1 to qualify

BetVictor has detailed its ‘The Million Pound Bet’ competition, which guarantees to give away at least  £1,000,000 throughout the course of the much anticipated Russian World Cup.

The operator has detailed plans to give away the sum of one million pounds to the customer who places a winning bet with the biggest odds on any World Cup market, with punters needing to stake a minimum of £1 to qualify.

Should there be more than one winner the prize will be equally shared, with the company also stating the any pre-existing World Cup bets placed before the launch are to be backdated.

All winning bets placed during the tournament are to be automatically entered into The Million Pound Bet competition, with customers also able to track progress on a leaderboard on the BetVictor site.

As well as the £1,000,000 overall jackpot, a daily prize of £5,000 is to also be given away, to the customer who places a single winning bet with the highest odds, on each of the twenty-five match days throughout the tournament

Again, this is to also be shared if there’s more than one daily winner, and will bring the total guaranteed giveaway during the World Cup to £1,125,000.

Commenting on the promotion, Eoin Ryan, BetVictor Head of Product told “We believe our campaign and promotion really does set us apart from others in the space because of the guaranteed nature of our headline prize and indeed our daily matchday version. On both of the competitions, the prize money will be won. There’s no if-buts-or maybe scenarios. It is going to be won, we just don’t know yet how many people will share the prize. It could be one person scooping £1,000,000 or it could be shared if there is more than one winner.

“We’ve seen other firms come out with promotions that look attractive at first but which ultimately - in all probability - never pay out the headline figure.

“We’ve seen other operators going down the tired old money back special route - which just doesn’t appeal to us as being innovative enough.

“Simply put we guarantee to give away over £1,000,000 on the World Cup to the customer(s) who places the winning bet (minimum stake £1) with the highest odds throughout the tournament and we have 25 daily £5,000 winners making a cumulative total of £1,125,000.   We believe our campaign will resonate with football punters old and new.”

He added: “Our main focus during the World Cup will be to deliver the best and most exciting betting experience possible. We believe that through the creation of best-in-class products like #PriceItUp Builder and The Million Pound Bet we can really raise the fun and excitement levels that our customers get from the World Cup. Ideally the concept proves attractive to new and existing customers and we can deliver a busy Tournament for the business and a thrilling one for our customers.”

Totally Gaming says: Whilst it takes a lot for operators to stand out at the World Cup, this promotion rewards punters with a plethora of prizes and can certainly give punters an extra incentive to use BetVictor as their operator of choice for this Summer’s showpiece event.
