Colossus Bets was founded in 2013 by Bernard Marantelli and Zeljko Ranogajec. Both were experienced gamblers, who shared the view that pools betting was a sleeping giant that had been starved of innovation as other forms of gaming were rapidly changing. They were also convinced that partial cash-out would become a sports betting juggernaut and would ultimately invade other gaming verticals, providing unprecedented player engagement, as well as generating a new revenue stream for betting operators.
Together, they decided to create a lottery-sized pools betting proposition based on sports, with significant guaranteed prizes for players and partial cash-out throughout.
