Unibet Join Investec Derby Sponsorship Lineup

As official betting partner for the next three years

Following the signing of a three-year deal, Kindred Group’s Unibet brand has become official betting partner of The Investec Derby Festival taking place at Epsom Downs Racecourse on June 3, 2017.

“The Investec Derby remains the most prestigious flat race in the world,” Ed Nicholson, Head of Racing Communications and Sponsorship at Kindred Group, said: “It is a British institution whose history and tradition resonates around the globe, and Unibet is honored to be associated with such an iconic race as official betting partner.”

While 2017’s iconic flat race is expected to offer a total prize pool of GBP 1.5 million, Unibet believes over GBP 60 million in bets will be placed by horserace punters.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
