Colossus Bets, the home of the £1,000,000 Colossus and the world's biggest football and sports jackpot, told the press today that a punter in the £2,000,000 correct score Pick 6 "Millionaire" game is considering whether he should take a £104,000 fractional cash-out offer or not.
If the player resists the Cash-In offer he needs a Colossus Bets ‘Any Other Home’ win (i.e. Chelsea to win and score at least 4 goals) to land £689,000, with a risk free shot at winning the same amount again by picking the correct score in the bonus leg - next Tuesday’s Champions League game between Paris St-Germain and Chelsea.
Colossus Bets COO David O’Reilly said: “It must be an intense day for this person to decide should he for example, bank £50,000 now for half of the ticket and play on for almost £700,000 more, or should he sit tight and pray Chelsea steamroll an out of form Everton side.”
The £4 ticket currently has a Cash-In offer of £104,000, which can be taken in full or in part before kick off tonight. A ‘fractional’ Cash-In of the ticket enables the player to sell any 10% part whilst retaining the remainder of the ticket to play for a correspondingly reduced share of the jackpot prize. The player will also receive a new offer at half-time in tonight’s match provided he does not sell the ticket in full before then.
A full unit in the ‘Millionaire’ pool costs players £2, but like all Colossus pools, the ‘Millionaire’ can be played for as little as 20p (which buys a 0.1 unit and plays for a proportional £200,000).
