A jackpot is essentially a pool of money that can be won by one individual or multiple. Since the development of online betting in Ghana, jackpots have started to take different shapes and sizes but they all offer punters with a completely new experience in comparison to ordinary betting.
To be able to win a Betway Ghana jackpot requires a little bit of luck as well as some skill.
In Ghana, the jackpot is quickly gathering popularity, thanks predominantly to a few major wins in the last two years. Punters are attracted to the fact that they can potentially win millions of GHS with just one small bet.
Betway Ghana is one of the main online Ghana betting sites to offer their punters jackpot games and boast the largest jackpot amounts. Launched in 2006, the company has grown into one of the world’s biggest online and mobile sports betting brands and has an escalating footprint in Africa.

The CS Pick 6 jackpot works in pretty much the same way, apart from the here, punters only need to correctly predict scores for six games and not seven.

Guessing all 15 scores correctly will fetch you a jackpot prize of 1 600 000 GHS. Those who correctly predict 11 to 15 matches can enjoy the spoils of a compensation fund between 16 000 and 40 000 GHS.
The 1×2 Pick 15 jackpot has been the most popular so far, having rendered two winners in the last 24 months.
