OneBet welcomes UK and pool betting

Official WRC betting partner OneBet opens for business in the UK for this week’s mixed surface fixture in Spain.

UK fans have so far been unable to participate in OneBet’s successful entry into the WRC but that will change at RallyRACC Catalunya – Rally de España (5 - 8 October) and the company will celebrate by also launching pool betting.

“This will be a great adventure both for us and the UK motorsport fans,” said OneBet CEO Morten Østberg.

“OneBet was started by a group of motorsport fans and professionals with the aim of bringing even more excitement into the experience. We’re setting out to be the world’s best and biggest motorsport betting house, so entering the UK is extremely exciting for us,” he added.

Østberg, father of WRC driver Mads, said the launch of pool betting and OneBet's availability in the the UK would be marked with a £25,000 prize bonus.

"From Spain we will offer players the chance to predict the Top 7 drivers overall, or the Top 3 on selected stages, in the right order. We want to deliver on our promise to bring even more excitement into motorsport, so we have added £25,000 in the 'Pick 7' betting pool. That should spice things up a bit!" he explained. 

OneBet's full sports book, with all of its motorsport betting products, will be available to UK players in the first quarter of 2018.
