BragBet Pioneers New Betting Concept for Euro 2012
DUBLIN, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
SocIal Betting ServIce Launches Euro 2012 Tournament With EUR2,012 up for Grabs
A brand new social betting concept [http://www.bragbet.com ] involving groups of
friends relying on each other’s football savvy and knowledge to win serious cash, has been
unveiled by Irish startup BragBet to coincide with the Euro 2012 Championships.
The BragBet Euro 2012 [http://www.bragbet.com ] contest, which will take the form of a
beta trial for a wider launch ahead of the new football season, involves teams of up to
six friends or colleagues who take turns each day to place bets on matches in the
tournament. No cash will change hands during Euro 2012, but cash prizes totalling EUR2,012
will be on offer, including EUR1,000 for the best performing team.
“Online betting [http://www.bragbet.com ] has never been a very social activity and we
want to change all that by integrating it with the very best aspects of social media,”
said Phil Riordan, CEO of BragBet. “The BragBet Euro 2012 contest is our opportunity to
trial the platform for the first time, introducing a new kind of fun, interactive betting
that will particularly appeal to the younger market.”
Team members will be encouraged to post their daily choices on the social networking
site, agree or disagree with their friends’ choices and boast about their successes, while
their opponents will also be able to see how each team is performing on the BragBet
website, creating an exciting race to the final as the tournament progresses,
“For Euro 2012 we’re offering BragBet as a way to let our players have fun and win
some cash prizes,” added Mr Riordan. “Later on in the year we’ll be giving our players the
chance to bet with their own, and their friends, money.”
When the BragBet [http://www.bragbet.com ] site launches for real players will have
the option to place money on the performance of their team, meaning that the team captains
are effectively betting with their friends’ cash, which should make for some interesting
chats in the pub on a Saturday night.
