/PRNewswire/ --
888.com, the world's favourite online gaming destination, is proud to announce
its sportsbook, 888sport, has partnered with Arsenal and England football
legend, Ian Wright.
Former Arsenal & West Ham footballer, Ian Wright, has signed a partnership to
become the ambassador for 888sport's Euros campaign. Wright will be the
face and voice of 888sport's Winning Streak, a prediction game based around
the results of the 31 games throughout the Euros.
The Winning Streak is an exclusive prediction promotion from 888sport where
pundits have the opportunity to predict the results of the 31 games of the Euros
for their chance at an £888,888 jackpot. In addition to the jackpot, 888sport will
also have several side promotions that will reward thousands of pounds of
prizes and free bets so every player has a shot at a win.
Wright, who himself has entered his predictions online already, is excited about
the competition, as well as the tournament: "The Euros are sure to be a closely
fought contest this summer. So many teams will fancy their chances, and going
through the fixtures and making my predictions brought up a few interesting
contests."
"I'm always asked who I think is going to win, and going through the process of
selecting my picks matched my initial thoughts! There are some tough groups,
but I'm happy with the predictions I've made! £888,888 is a lot of money to win,
and will get the amateur pundits across the land thinking long and hard about
the Euros, and who is going to go all the way! It may show it's not as easy being
a pundit as it looks!"
Itai Pazner, SVP of 888.com, commented on the partnership: "Wrighty is so well
known and respected across the game of football, and we are proud to be
associated with someone of his stature in the sport. The Winning Streak is a
new concept we have created, and one we're really excited by. We hope that
there is a 'winning streak', going the whole way and winning £888,888 could
change someone's life."
About Winning Streak:
Winning Streak is an online prediction game available at
promo.888.com/winningstreak. Customers register for free and are prompted
to pick the win, lose or draw results of the 31 games of the Euros. If an eligible
player is determined to have predicted all 31 games correctly, they will win an
£888,888 jackpot. Players registered in the Winning Streak will also be offered
the opportunity to start individual mini leagues, update their predictions and
play against Wrighty for opportunity to win other guaranteed prizes and free
bets.
