GIBRALTAR, June 1, 2012 /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."
