Colossus Bets announces 1960Bet deal

Operator Colossus Bets has entered into a partnership with 1960Bet, one of the largest sports-betting firms in Africa.

The deal will see all of Colossus's pools products, including the flagship £10m Colossus, distributed throughout Nigeria from the beginning of the new football season in August.

Colossus Bets founder and CEO Bernard Marantelli said: "1960Bet is a top tier brand online and offline across Nigeria, which with a population of 185 million is by some way Africa’s most populous country."

Dotun Ajegbile, founder and CEO of 1960Bet added: “African punters love shooting for a big win from small spend accumulator bets, and with partial cash-in and global liquidity, this product is a great fit for our market."
