Colossus Bets granted Totalizator license in the State of Oregon

28th January 2018

Pools betting pioneer Colossus Bets has been granted a license to operate a totalizator by the Oregon Racing Commission. This license will enable authorized North American betting operators to access Colossus Bets horse racing pools through microsite technology provided by Colossus Bets.  Sean Pinsonneault of Bluslate Inc represented Colossus Bets before the Oregon Racing Commission.

Colossus Bets’ Chief Executive, Bernard Marantelli commented: “We are looking forward to bringing the Colossus formula of lotto-sized jackpots with leg-by-leg Cash Out and crowdfunded Syndicates, to North American horseplayers. It will be the first time Cash Out on racing has been offered in the US.

The Oregon Racing Commission is a progressive and forward looking regulator with most top tier operators on it register, so it is especially pleasing to join their ranks.

Increasing our US regulatory footprint will also accelerate the launch of our patented Cash Out feature on existing US horse racing pools.”

Jack McGrail, Executive Director of the Oregon Racing Commission added: “We are pleased to award this license to Colossus Bets and we welcome the innovation they will bring to pari-mutuel betting on horse racing, for our licensees and their players.”
