Coral's Football Jackpot has already paid out two big wins but nobody has yet scooped the £1,000,000 top prize. Enter this weekend and you could become an instant millionaire thanks to the Football Jackpot coupon.
A punter scooped £52,000 for getting 14 out of the 15 results correct and last week there was a £72,000 payout when a punter correctly picked 13 of the 14 results required. Just Manchester United losing to Liverpool let them down for £1,000,000.
Football Jackpot will run every weekend throughout the 2013/14 football season and will be supported by a seven figure advertising campaign across broadcast and print.
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 by Coral 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.
Simon Clare, PR Director of Coral comments, “This is an historic day as we are the first British bookmaker on the high street to ever offer our own “football pool bet” and one with the potential to create millionaires.”
Clare continues, “We are confident Football Jackpot will become a huge success and are investing a seven figure sum to launch and promote this exciting new bet on TV and in print advertising over the coming weeks and months. Football has a huge and growing following in Britain and by offering football fans a simple, Lottery-style, ‘small-stake big-win’ product we hope to attract thousands of new customers to our shops and online, as well as giving existing football punters a new and fun betting opportunity to try and win a life-changing sum of money”
Clare adds, “The beauty of the Football Jackpot is that we will always know going into the last game every Monday or Sunday whether we have a customer in with a chance of becoming a millionaire and what results they need, enabling us to promote the thrill and excitement of the bet as it happens through social media and CoralTV in Coral betting shops”
The Football Jackpot win pool will rollover if there is no winner, and Coral predicts that there will be occasions during the season where customers will be in with a chance of winning well in excess of £1m.
