Now that we are live with Colossus pools on-line we look forward to extending the offer to our retail estate and in time we look forward to being able to offer Colossus pools on African football competitions.”

Akin Alabi, founder and CEO of NairaBET said: “African punters love shooting for a big win from small spend accumulator bets. This product fits ideally with our client base across web and mobile and we are pleased to be introducing the Colossus product portfolio to Africa.”
