The site also offers a mid-week jackpot – the Bingwa Five – consisting of five games and offering 2.5 million Kes first prize.
When is the Betika Jackpot
The weekly Betika jackpot takes place over every weekend with football fixtures drawn from across the world. Once the European season kicks offs, matches from the top leagues on the continent will be on offer.
This takes in both Saturday and Sunday matches. The cut-off time for placing bets is five minutes before the kick-off of the first match on the schedule. This normally does not take in the early EPL kick-off. The jackpot ends with the last of the set fixtures on a Sunday night.
The mid-week Bingwa Five jackpot is for matches happening on a Wednesday night, but in the European season also takes in Thursday Europe League matches. The last bet must be placed five minutes before the kick-off of the first match.
Minimum bet amount
Betika.com offers two ways to place bets on the weekly jackpot, either by way of 33 bob per ticket or by using 100 Betika points and 10 bob. Betika points are earned by customers by actively placing bets on a regular basis.
The minimum bet for the mid-week Bingwa five is 50 Shillings. The beauty of this mini-jackpot is the fact punters only need to correctly predict the results of five matches.
How many matches are in the Betika Jackpot
The Betika weekly jackpot sets 15 scheduled fixtures and the punter can choose to predict the results of any 13 games. This is a unique outlook when it comes to this type of football pools betting.
The Bingwa Five, as the name implies, means punters have to accurately predict the results of five matches to stand a chance to win the grand prize.
What is the average Betika jackpot pay out?
The jackpot is an accumulator which means that if no punter hits all 13 correct results the amount will carry over well past the 5 million bob mark, hitting 7-8 million some weeks.
The average pay out for a punter hitting 12 of 13 correct results will win in the 250 000 Kenyan Shilling range, while for the 11 correct predictions a bettor will walk away with an average of 20 000 bob.
Betika also promises to pay the bettors who only predict 10 correct results the highest amount in Kenya with the average pay out for this 4000 bob.
The midweek jackpot offers a top prize of 2.5 million Kes, and if there are more than one winner this will be shared out accordingly.
The fact that only five matches are played means there are often multiple winners so the amount varies from 50 000 bob to the grand prize.
