The Sportpesa midweek jackpot, is growing into one of the most popular in the country, with more than one and a half million punters opting to land the 10 million+ Kenyan Shillings on offer, but no where near as popular as the Sportpesa Mega Jackpot. Ever since the major crack down on betting sites in Kenya, there have been some new sites aiming for number 1 and so far Odibets looks like they might take it.
The prize monies are based on an accumulated formula with the starting point being a minimum of 10 million ksh and building up until a punter or a group of bettors, accurately predict all 13 legs. The mid-week jackpot normally grows to the 30-50 million ksh range before it is snapped up.

The midweek jackpot is made up of 13 legs and includes football matches from across the globe. The matches come mostly from lower tier action, making it harder to predict clear-cut favourites. There are often matches from the English second and third divisions as well as games from lower-league teams in Spain, France, Germany and Italy. There are also matches from the South African league and cup action that are used from time to time.
The minimum stake to compete in the mid-week jackpot is 100 bob.
There are prizes for forecasting 12, 11 and 10 out of the 13 scheduled fixtures.
The jackpot is made up of the same premise as most other related features around the world with the punter having to decide whether the result for each fixture will end in a home win (H), draw (X) or an away win (A).
A bet-maker can place as many stakes as wanted, and each bet-card can reach a maximum limit of 12800 Ksh. This is made up of double chances, where a punter can select two of the three results per event, and do this over a handful of other games in the draw.
The chances of winning the mid-week jackpot are low, around 1.6 million to one, but the rewards are life-changing.
The average pay-out for winning all 13 legs ranges from 10-60 million Ksh, while the average for selecting 12 of 13 winners ranges from the 100 000 bob to 1 million Ksh range.
Correctly predicting 11 from 13 should earn the punter between 15 000 and 80 000 Ksh, while picking 10 winners will earn between 1 thousand and 10 000 bob.
