Start-up business secures Betfred as partner

The creators of football app Gloryhunter have secured an exclusive partnership deal with betting firm Betfred.

Described as “the most original, real-time football game since fantasy football”, Gloryhunter is the brainchild of 41-year-old Richard Hague, from Manchester.

Richard acknowledged that people found it hard maintaining Fantasy Football teams across a season – so he created a simpler game. Through the app, players can select any team in the English League and play with friends and fans across the world.

The app, which launched last year, has been updated for the 201617 season; including extra game updates, more chances to win prizes and increased game play.

Through the new partnership, users can now view odds from Betfred for every match and win monthly points and prizes from Betfred and Nike, another partner.

Players can share their progress with friends on Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp with SMS messaging providing the latest results.

When the season ends there will be a prize draw where one player will win a week-long VIP trip to Las Vegas for them and three friends.

Betfred founder Fred Done said:“Gloryhunter is something that true football fans will enjoy this season and it really stood out to me as a digital game that is going to soar in popularity.

It is based on real-life action on the pitch – and exciting live sport and fans is what Betfred is all about. It seemed like a natural fit to join forces and support such an ambitious new digital start-up.”

Gloryhunter’s Richard Hague added:“Having one of UK’s most trusted and experienced gaming brands behind us is incredible.  We have big plans for growth this upcoming season and Betfred’s backing will allow us to achieve this.”
