Colossus bets app
Since we started testing the Colossus bets app we’ve become almost obsessed with it! It gives you the chance to win a share of many different pools based games. Although the headline pool “The Colossus” offers a £5,000,000 jackpot we’re much more interested in the pick 3/4 games as well as the HDA 8/15. There’s always pools to pick from every day so download the Colossus bets app and get involved today! See below for a special new customer offer.
Colossus bets app review
As a new customer to Colossus bets you can get your first 72 hours spend matched, up to £100, when you register and add our promo code “BETTRACKS”.
The best thing about this app is that it is unique, most other betting apps offer the same markets, very similar design and very similar odds. Colossus bets changes all that with its clean simple layout and pools type betting – but with massive jackpots and fractional cash out options.
The biggest pool is “the Colossus” and is a headline grabbing £5,000,000 jackpot if you can correctly pick the correct score from 7 selected games. Whilst this is a real long shot you have the option to cover multiple results and if its going well you can always cash out for a bumper payment.
Syndicates on Colossus gives you the chance to share in other larger tickets for a smaller cost. This is a great way of getting involved in big pools even for just a couple of quid – a really fun way to bet socially. Most of the captains are on twitter and you can follow Colossus syndicates at @cbsyndicates who keep you up to date with how the pools are going.
The captain (the person who picked the results for the pool) controls the cash out in a syndicate so you just have to accept their decisions. From experience, most captains are sensible and cash in parts of the bet to cover the stake once a decent offer is in.
Cash out options – On the Colossus bets app you get the option to cash out your bets if you are winning, once the games are in play – This can only be done at half time and full time. You can flick through your bets and see what options you have. Another great thing about Colossus is the fractional cash in option where you can “sell” part of the bet off for an amount and keep the rest of the bet running.
This is a great way of banking some profits but still allowing the rest of the bet to win for a smaller prize. This was a unique offering from Colossus but Betfair have since added this to their exchange and sports app too – Click here for the Betfair app review.
HDA 8 & 15 – The HDA (home, draw, away) pool is our favourite market on the Colossus bets app as the potential for winning is much increased. The HDA 15 is the equivalent of the Coral football jackpot but with an £800,000 prize pool every week so it’s generally better.
As with all their markets you have the full or fractional cash in available to you, which you don’t get with the football jackpot. During the week there’s HDA5s the other size depending on the number of games on with prizes starting from £1,000.
Pick 3, 4 & 6 – The pick games are for the correct score markets where you have to pick selected scores from the range, again you can pick multiple options and this increases your stake size. There are options for any score above 3 (4-0, 4-1 etc) goals for the home or away team – AOH (any other home) and AOA (any other away). If you fancy a score draw they also have AOD (any other draw) which is any draw at 2-2 or higher. This is a nice option as it covers you on high scoring games and is similar to Betfair’s “any unquoted” on the correct score market.
Overall we really like the Colossus bets app and this is a great, fun and well thought out app that gives you something different than the standard betting apps.
