Betpawa Nigeria is one of the leading online sports betting brands in Africa and the Nigerian version offers punters quality bet markets, promotions, an online casino and two football jackpots.
The betpawa.ng site is packed with opportunities to win large pay-outs and along with one of the widest football ranges for bet-types, also boasts live in-play betting.
The platform offers a host of bet activities and the jackpot is one of the more popular opportunities to win relatively large amounts with a low stake wager.
The first Betpawa jackpot does not have one of the larger pay-outs with 1 million naira up for grabs for the lucky punter who accurately predicts 13 out of 13 legs.
This amount translates to almost 2800 US dollar at current exchange rate and while it is a large sum it is hardly life-changing.
There are smaller prize pay-outs for players who miss out on one, two or three legs. The average pay-out for 12 of the 13 matches is around the 25 000 naira mark, while correctly predicting 11 will bring in around 5 000, and picking 10 correct winners will earn a punter a thousand naira.
The minimum bet amount to play the Empawa13 is 10 Naira.
The second and substantially larger jackpot game is the Empawa17, with punters having to accurately forecast the results of 17 football matches, played from leagues across the globe.
The minimum bet is 10 naira and the maximum prize for predicting all 17 legs correctly is a substantial 20 million naira. There are also prizes paid out to punters who predict 14, 15 or 16 out of the possible 17 legs.
The jackpots takes place weekly, with a Wednesday (Empawa13) and weekend draw (Empawa17).
The matches are taken from leagues across the world and feature games from some of the top flight action like EPL, La Liga and Bundesliga, but also relies heavily on unfancied competitions.
Both jackpot games take the form of the traditional football pools with a punter having to predict whether the scheduled match will end in a home win, draw or away win.
There is allowances for double chances, which means a punter can take two options for a series of scheduled games – thus increasing the chances of winning and also increasing the stake amount. An example of this is when Arsenal play Spurs at home and the punter chooses either a draw or away win, covering two results out of the possible three.
During football season the jackpot cards are normally filled with a mix of matches from the top leagues and some real unknowns, which could prove posers for would-be-winners.
The results and winning tickets are displayed within 12-18 hours with punters being able to see their earnings as well as the final scores.
The new jackpot pools are put up on a Monday morning (for the mid-week games) and on Thursday morning (for the weekend action).
Betpawa Nigeria remains a popular online sports betting site for punters who enjoy playing the traditional soccer football jackpots and the Nigerian platform delivers on this count.
