Two games available from FootballPools.com, Premier 10 and Footy 15, have made massive payouts totalling £1.25m – and that's just since the start of the season late last summer!
In Premier 10, players bet on ten Premier League matches in a simple win/lose/draw format. In Footy 15 the players bet on matches from all around the UK and Europe. The former has seen £500,000 in cash prizes doled out, the latter £850,000. In addition to this there have been many non-cash prizes given away too.
Ian Penrose, CEO of Sportech, owners of The New Football Pools, says, "These games were designed to allow football fans to test their knowledge, have fun and also make some money in the process! This season we've already given out over £1.25million on our new games, which really is an incredible amount to have paid out."
