The Ghanaian online bet industry is awash with a variety of jackpot games, with many sites opting for more than one feature game, while others prefer a more traditional outlook.
Sportybet Ghana is a top notch Ghana betting site that offers a single jackpot action, which is refreshing in that the developers have not tried to go overboard and re-invent the wheel.
A good old fashioned 11-legged jackpot is just the tonic for newcomers learning to the betting trade or more regular users who prefer to simplify the experience.
The site offers a weekly football jackpot made up of 11 matches and while the prize is relatively lower than many major progressives, 25 000 cedi is nothing to be sneezed at, especially considering the small minimum stake of 1 cedi, and the fact than an 11-legged jackpot is easier to win. The only other Ghana site to have a super low minimum is Betpawa Ghana.
The jackpot game-play is based on the ‘straight’ version, meaning a punter must just predict the outright result in the 11 listed games, with a selection of a home win, draw or away win all that is needed.
Many competing sites in Ghana have opted for more taxing jackpots such as correct scores, both teams to score and sometimes even have 17 legs in a single pool, and Sportybet GH obviously wants to keep their jackpot simple, and punters could well appreciate the gesture and play on this platform due to the feasibility and familiarity of game play.
The team at Sportybet Ghana offer football league action from around the world but tend to stick to the lower level matches such as the English First Division, the Russian league and some of the second tier competition over places like Italy and Spain. They do however throw in a tantalizing game or two, like AC Milan vs Inter Milan for example.
The more obscure the matches on the weekly draw the more work a punter has to put into research.
Punters wishing to check out and play the jackpot need go to the sportybet.com.gh site and find the ‘jackpot’ icon listed on the home page directory. Clicking on the link will then take the user to the jackpot page, which is one of the easiest on the eye in that there is no real sensory overload. The page simply has the fixtures for the latest weekly draw, a ‘how to play’ and a previous results section.
The fixtures show 11 contests with the odds for each result displayed. For example Sassuolo vs Sampdoria, with the odds for a home win, draw or away win, very prominently displayed. A user needs to click on an option, for each match and can also do a double chance, meaning wagering on two outcomes per legs. This increase of chances will increase the stake. They hardly ever have matches from the Ghana Premier League, but this is mostly due to volume of games.
The Sporty11 is one of the easiest to play jackpots on the Ghana betting market.
The ‘how to play’ section is a self-explanatory guide that takes the punters through an easy tutorial on how to take part.
There is also a random generator feature called ‘ jackpot rush’ whereby the punter stakes an amount and the results will be automatically drawn for them … this is proving a popular method of betting as oft-times a football jackpot is almost lottery like in results.
The site as a whole is an attractive betting portal and the jackpot is an extension of a relaxed betting experience. There are many promotions to keep the punters on the platform and it always helps if the ethos of the site and the jackpot go hand in glove.
There is nothing complicated about the sportybet.com.gh site nor the jackpot and this traditional look and feel is a balm to newcomers and regulars alike.
The site advertises banking options in a clear and discernible manner with tigo, airtel, MTN and Vodafone all valid and available means to play.
The rest of the site lends itself serious credibility with its professionalism and this bodes well for punters who want to feel familiar with a jackpot that is seamless, uncomplicated and offering a decent pay-out.
