Types of jackpots.
In both the gaming and sporting market, there are several types of jackpots you can find. Depending on what sparks your interests, these are the several jackpots that are currently available to the Kenyan players and the market in general.
This type of jackpot multiplies by a factor or increases every time the game/jackpot is played but is not won. After reaching a certain cap the jackpot may remain on the same figure until it is won or may be reset back at the discretion of the bookie
This is the kind of jackpot that you predominantly find in the sports betting market where the jackpot prize is fixed at a certain amount whether it is won or not. A good example of this jackpot is the mega jackpot that was very popular with Sportpesa and was on several occasions won by both local punters and the seasoned betting pundits
Standalone progressive jackpot
This is the type of jackpot that is more or less the hybrid of the two. A good example is the Mega jackpot that was a fan favourite during the sportpesa days. This mega jackpot of about 220 million Kes was once won by a young punter from Roysambu.

Dafabet Jackpot [Feb 2021 Update]
Their registration process is easy, odds superb but one fact becomes may be confusing to gamblers; the fact that they have more than one jackpot. That’s right!
At Dafabet, you get to enjoy a wide range of jackpot games. It is however difficult to realize this if it’s your first-time betting with them. This information is not provided on their site and only frequent gamblers with the site slowly begin to realize this. Let’s run through the different jackpots and when they are played.
- Half Time/ Full Time (HT/FT) Jackpot
This is a fascinating jackpot clearly distinct from other betting site jackpots. Here, you are expected to correctly predict the position of only 6 games at half time and at full time. The maximum number of possible outcomes of a single game are 9; that is if the home team is to be represented by H and away team represented by A and draw as D, then the possible outcomes are HH, HX, HA, DH, DD, DA, AA, AD and AH.
The ticket price is set at only KSH 50 for the ultimate prize of KSH 1,000,000. A bonus of KSH 50,000 is issued for 5/6 correct picks. This jackpot gets in motion on Tuesdays but the dates may change, so be on the lookout.
- Weekend ChapChap
With a ticket of only KSH99, you could walk away with the outrageous KSH 10,000,000 from the Weekend Chap Chap jackpot.

This has to be the easiest jackpot online that I have ever come across. There are 10 games that you have to correctly predict the three-way (1X2) outcomes of each. The interesting bit is that the games aren’t hard at all, not like the classic jackpot events. And just like that, you stand a chance to win KSH 100,000 using a ticket of only KSH 99. A bonus of KSH 15,000 is awarded for 9/10 correct picks. Most events here are form the English Premier League and therefore kick off dates may vary.

Notable Kenyan Jackpot Winners
He was the first Kenyan to take home the (now defunct) SportPesa’s mega jackpot home. Abisai bagged Kes 221M. There was no withholding tax then. The good old betting days. There were rumours
That Samuel had misappropriated his windfall. However, it looks like these rumors were a strategic way of keeping “friends” from asking for handouts, as his father narrates.
In addition to building them a home, Abisai built his father a commercial apartment where they’d be getting passive income from.
Nicholas Kirui who won two jackpots
We’re it not for a late 95th minute goal Nicholas wouldn’t have won the Kes 15M Betika jackpot; and that’s not the most surprising part yet. This was his second time being a jackpot winner. Talk of being lucky. He’d won Kes 8M (bonus) in Sportpesa’s 13 game jackpot last year. Kirui hit the Betika jackpot this June after correctly predicting 15 games. The COVID pandemic isn’t taking a toll on everyone.
Gordon Ogada, sportpesa’s Kes 230M winner
Gordon broke Abisai’s record last year. Abisai was there to congratulate him too as he received the dummy cheque.
What would you do after winning the jackpot? Here’s what crazy Kennar (the comedian) would do with his.
Which sportsbook’s jackpot should you go for?
Stake with a company you trust. There are many Kenyan bookies and with all the mainstream ones, you’re sure that they’ll honor their word as they have a reputation to protect. Look at the number of games too. Statistically, its risker predicting multiple events but then the reward grows exponentially. Again, most jackpots are made with stakes of Kes 100 and below. It wouldn’t hurt risking that much for a life changing windfall. I would say that all games featured in the jackpot are hard to predict.
