- To participate in the jackpot games, the player needs to purchase tickets. Players can purchase tickets by depositing money onto their Playabet accounts from which the ticket price will be deducted, after making selections and placing the jackpot bet.
- Once the Jackpot selection has been recorded in the Betting platform, the Jackpot selection cannot be cancelled or amended
- In order to qualify for the Jackpot, Players need to correctly predict the outcome of the designated matches for the Daily, Midweek and/or the weekend jackpot.
- The Results of all matches are based on standard 90 minute betting / outcome. Overtime, Golden Goals, penalty shot outs are not included.

Fractional Bets like this will give the Player a corresponding entitlement to any dividends payable at the point of game settlement.

- If a game has been cancelled or postponed there is always a 24 hours wait until the match will be set as void
- If a match is abandoned or postponed from its scheduled date/time but is then rescheduled to take place no later than the advertised kick-off time of the last match on the list, then provided the match is played to completion at the rearranged time, all selections will stand.
- In all cases of postponements, cancellations, suspensions of matches, the local date and time of the event is taken into account (local time). The official kick off of every match is the last officially publicized time by Playabet. Therefore, any subsequent time publicized, supersedes any previous and is henceforth considered the new official kick off time of the match.
- If one fixture is considered postponed or cancelled, the result will be deemed to be the same result as the result of the first match which is published in the jackpot list that returns a valid result.
- If a second fixture is considered postponed or cancelled, the result will be deemed to be the same result as the result of the second match which is published in the jackpot list that returns a valid result. (This will be game two, except in the event of one of the first 2 games being cancelled, in which case it will be game three)
- If a third fixture is considered postponed or cancelled, the result will be deemed to be the same result as the result of the third match which is published in the jackpot list that returns a valid result (this will be game 3 in the event of none of the first three matches being cancelled)
- In the event of four or more matches not being played within 24 hours of their scheduled kick off time, the complete Jackpot will be deemed void and all stakes refunded to player accounts.
