The pools betting operator has promised more US announcements

Colossus Bets CEO Bernard Marantelli has teased more American announcements after his company entered a new partnership with Pivit to develop and distribute NFL fantasy pools.

The new pools will leverage the popular MVP fantasy sports format and Colossus’ unique features, including lottery-size prize guarantees, cash out technology, on which Colossus has patent protection in the US, and crowdfunded syndicate tickets.

Free-to-play and play-for-fun versions will also be offered as part of the roll-out effort in early Q3, which serves to expand Colossus’ portfolio beyond its original sports core. In phase two, Colossus plans to run other multi leg sports jackpot pools across North America.

Robert S. Miller, Pivit’s acting Marketing and Business Development Officer, commented: “This is an exciting development, which allows us to add to our suite of existing sweepstakes products, by adding a popular fantasy concept and big sports jackpots, which are highly engaging to a US customer.

“Having strong distribution from day 1 adds to the excitement and we expect many players to be excited to engage in this product, given the large potential prize pools.”

Taking to his LinkedIn page on 12 July, Marantelli added: "It’s crazy how quickly we are expanding at home and abroad, as tomorrow we also launch our British racing pools, so a big thank you to our internal tech and business development teams for keeping up with each other in what at times seems to be an escalating arms race."

Totally Gaming says: Pivit, a jackpot focused fantasy sports platform with a potential reach of 3 million customers, has shown its commitment to the project by putting in place a multi-channel digital marketing plan to support the launch. These NFL pools will benefit from global liquidity through the Pivit and Colossus networks.
