Coral delighted with launch of unique £1 million Football Jackpot bet
On the eve of the new Premier League season, leading bookmaker Coral has launched its unique Football Jackpot pool bet, which could see lucky punters become millionaires. The bet, the first of its kind, will run every weekend during the 2013/14 season.
Coral customers can place their Football Jackpot bets via coupons available in Coral’s 1800 shops, or online at coral.co.uk or via Coral’s mobile app. The mechanics are simple: Each week the Football Jackpot coupon will contain 15 football matches and customers will be asked to predict either a home win, draw or away win for just a £1 stake. The first sole winner of Football Jackpot is guaranteed to win £1million, and there are also consolation prizes for customers who narrowly miss out. Customers who correctly predict 13 or 14 results will receive a consolation cash payment and depending on the size of the pool and the number of consolation winners even this could run into tens of thousands of pounds. Customers also have the flexibility of either choosing a lucky dip or making their own selections.
“Customers have embraced the launch of Football Jackpot with the pool already into six figures and we are confident it will continue to increase significantly by 3pm on Saturday. The first sole winner of Football Jackpot is guaranteed to become a millionaire, and there are also consolation prizes for customers who narrowly miss out,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
“We will know after Saturday’s matches if anyone is still in with a chance of winning £1 million at the first attempt, and by Monday one punter could be one result away from scooping the jackpot, but of course the win pool will roll over when there is no winner, meaning there will be occasions during the season when punters will be in with a chance of winning well in excess of £1m,” added Stevens.
The first match on the coupon is at 3pm Saturday 17th August with the final game being the Monday night Premier League fixture on 19th August between Manchester City and Newcastle United.
