/PRNewswire/ --
Socıal Betting Servıce Launches Euro 2012 Tournament With €2,012 up for
Grabs
A brand new social betting concept 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 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 €2,012 will be on offer, including €1,000 for the best performing team.
"Online betting 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 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.

limited so don't miss out.
