SYNDICATE NOW OPEN TO NEW PLAYERS THIS WEEK: HDA15, CLOSES AT 1PM SATURDAY (KICK OFF 3PM)
Colossus Bets is a football pool where prizes of up to £10 million are on offer. Geegeez runs occasional syndicates, generally chasing more modest - though still lip-smacking - prize funds, and if you'd like to be a part, details of how to enrol are below.
This weekend we'll be tackling the HDA15, with a guaranteed pool of two million quid for predicting the result (home, draw, away) in 15 matches.
If you fancy taking this on yourself, the link below is your friend.
You can find out more about Colossus here:
The great thing about Colossus pools is that there's a cash out option at half time and the end of all matches. Basically, you're made an offer for 100% of your ticket, so you can see what your tickets are currently worth and take a percentage out if you wish to.
This weekend I'm offering a syndicate play for anyone interested in joining me. Details:
A. Syndicateers will send funds to my skrill account which will enable me to transfer them directly to my Colossus account. I will know who's sent how much by the email address of the sender.
B. If you'd like to play, the minimum stake is £25 (sorry, but the admin overhead of hundreds of smaller stakes is unworkable) and the maximum is £150. I will be playing £150.
C. I will not accept any more players after 1pm GMT Saturday, as I need to know how much is in the kitty and frame the bets.
D. I will send our permutations to all players prior to the kick off of the first game (3pm Saturday).
E. We'll be looking to play one £2 perm, and one (or more) 20p perms. For the 20p perm, we'll be playing for a piece of £200,000 (still not at all shabby!).
F. I am away Sunday (Geegeez Racing Syndicates Stable Day at Anthony Honeyball's yard, then racing at Wincanton). But we'll be nine games into the 15 by Saturday evening, and may well have cashed at least some of our ticket for an offer by that point!
G. Please keep in mind that this is a very hard bet to land, and only join us if you're fine with losing if it goes that way.
Right, all that said, if you're interested:
1a. You'll need a Skrill account. Skrill is a widely accepted 'online wallet' accepted by virtually all betting companies, including Colossus.
And, importantly, it enables me to transfer our joint funds into my Colossus account for the purposes of syndicate shootouts.
If you don't have a Skrill account, you can get one here:
[ I'M REALLY SORRY BUT I'M ONLY ACCEPTING SKRILL DEPOSITS FOR THIS ]
2. Log in to Skrill and click the orange 'Send Money' link on the right side of your Account Overview.
3. Recipient email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and the amount should be either £25, £50, £100 or £150
(Other denominations will be returned, as I need to keep this fairly simple!)
If you receive confirmation from Skrill that your payment has been sent, then it has. You won't hear from me until Saturday when I send out the details of our tickets.
4. I'll send an email to all syndicate members between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Saturday with details of our tickets.
Good luck! (and feel free to play by yourself if you prefer!)
OUR TICKETS FOR THIS WEEKEND
Down to the 'full cover' early ticket, and it's the only ticket left in the pool just about. The offer was staggeringly derisory so we've had no choice but to push on to the two 5.30pm games. Fingers crossed for home wins at West Ham and Schalke (or maybe a draw in the German game).
