Coral are one of the best football bookies around, and they have cemented there position at the top table with their fantastic Football Jackpot which was launched at the beginning of the 2013-14 football season and gives football betting fans the chance to win a weekly jackpot of £100,000 by correctly predicting the outcome of 15 football matches (chosen by Coral).
The best thing about the Football Jackpot, however, is that if no one wins the big prize in a given week, it rolls over to the next week, and so on … and the jackpot has reached truly astronomical heights, not least in December 2014 when a vast jackpot of over £5 million was split by four lucky winners!
If you are keen to try your luck, then why not get over to the Coral Football Jackpot now? Or read on for further details of how the game works.

How do you play the Coral Football Jackpot?
The Football Jackpot is very easy to play and is similar to the old football pools. Coral select the 15 matches each week (usually including many of the biggest games being played including those in the Premier League). You then select whether you think the game will finish as a home win, a draw or an away win.
If you get all 15 correct – which, admittedly, is easier said than done! – you will win a share of the jackpot (which will be at least £100,000). It is rare for more than one person to win each week and indeed quite often no one wins at all, resulting in a rollover.
What if I want to hedge my bets?
No problem. You can select one, two or even three predictions for each match, but note that each extra selection – as well as increasing your chances of winning – will increase your stake accordingly. Each extra selection you adds an extra line, and thus an extra unit of your stake (which can be anything from 25p to £20 per line, but the standard is £1 per line).
What if I miss out by one result?
It would clearly be gutting to miss the jackpot because just one result lets you down, but fear not as Coral offer a consolation prize for those who have correctly predicted 13 or 14 matches correctly. These consolation prizes vary wildly, but they often run into the thousands of pounds, which is better than nothing. Much better.
Sounds good… what now?
Well, get over to Coral, open a betting account with them if you don’t already have one and go to the Football Jackpot section to get your bets on. With a bit of luck you might just land that massive cash prize!
