Betfred’s Group Head of Marketing, Gemma Strath, said: “We’re going old-school to celebrate Betfred’s 50th anniversary. Pac-Manager is a free-to-play game that sees football’s biggest stars in 8-bit form as a nod to the arcade classics of years gone by.”
Infinite levels mean you can always better your score and players who make it onto the top of the leader board will win prizes, as well as bragging rights.
If tensions between Liverpool and Manchester United supporters aren’t rising enough ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash at Anfield, the new Pac-Manager game is set to cause even more friendly competition between friends and fans.
In the run up to this weekend’s game, Jurgen and Jose will go head to head in the popular recreation of Britain’s favourite arcade game, encouraging mates to settle arguments before kick-off.
