Official FIA WRC sports betting partner OneBet and pools betting pioneer Colossus Bets announce launch of WRC pools

OneBet sets sights on motor sport fans with first ever WRC pools betting product. Full Colossus pools portfolio to be delivered alongside exclusive motor sport pools.

 

OneBet has announced the launch of WRC pools betting in the UK in collaboration with Colossus Bets. Although a newcomer to the sports betting space, OneBet is seeking to establish itself as the world’s premier motor sport betting house, powered by its credentials as the official sports betting partner of the FIA World Rally Championship.

Morten Østberg, CEO of OneBet and father of WRC driver Mads Østberg, said, “OneBet was started by a group of motor sport fans and professionals with the aim to bring even more excitement in the motor sport experience. Launching in the UK, the world ‘capital’ of motor sport is a big milestone. This will be a great adventure for both us and UK motor sports fans.

The WRC product portfolio kicks off with pools on the Spanish round of the WRC, headlined by a pool requiring players to pick the top 7 of the overall rally with a minimum jackpot guarantee of £25,000, which according to Mr. Østberg “should spice things up a bit”. These are complemented by Colossus’ broader sports pools portfolio and life-changing football jackpots, while more products are already in the pipeline (see https://www.onebet.com/en/betting/colossus for the full current offering).

Colossus Bets’ CEO, Bernard Marantelli, commented, “It has been an exciting challenge to collaborate with OneBet to create the world’s first pools on motor sport. We think the end product will appeal to both WRC fans and sports bettors and look forward to running pools across the WRC series.”

There is still some work to do before UK fans get to experience OneBet’s complete sports book but the company is targeting a full release in the UK in the first quarter of 2018.
