Colossus Bet, the home of the £10,000,000 sports jackpot for punters, saw the first winners of the £500,000 bonus leg in the HDA15 football last night.
Barnsley’s come from behind win at home to Bradford saw six winning bonus leg tickets, the highlight of which was a ticket costing just 40p which added £50,000 from the bonus leg to the £20,000 already secured last weekend from the win fund jackpot. Three other tickets also scooped £50,000 each from the bonus fund and two tickets, both of which had been 50% Cashed-In last week, won £25,000 each.
Another player whose bonus leg selection was for the Yorkshire derby match to end in a draw, Cashed-In half of the ticket before kick-off, to bank £55,900 on what was ultimately a losing pick.
In total £430,000 had already been scooped last weekend in the HDA15 win fund by the players who collectively added £250,000 in the bonus leg, together with the £55,900 Cash-In.
Bernard Marantelli, Colossus Bets founder and CEO said: “It’s great to see punters turning small stakes into life-changing prizes – and a £70,000 football jackpot from a 40p ticket is a fantastic achievement. Our Fractional Cash-In option has also been put to excellent use, enabling one player to take a big five figure sum off the table for half of his bonus pick before a ball was kicked in the bonus leg match.”
The £1,000,000 HDA15 is a weekly 15-leg pool bet with a Home-Draw-Away format comprising a minimum £500,000 win fund and a minimum £500,000 bonus – both numbers net of deductions. Any winners of the win fund will have a free pick on the outcome of one further football match the following week, to try and land the £500,000 bonus.
