Once you have made your predictions for the First Half and Second Half outcomes, take your betslip to a teller at an approved National Lottery retailer and make your payment. A single board entry costs R2.00. You will receive a receipt to show all your selected result choices.
The Propick Option
You can also play Sportstake 8 by choosing Propick, this is a quick play option that will automatically choose match results on your behalf. Propick selects match outcomes by using a combination of two methods. It considers statistical head to head history of the two teams in the fixture, plus a randomised selection. Your selections will therefore be part weighted and part randomised. Make sure you check the results for the fixture list that you select to play.
Prizes and Odds
The Sportstake prize fund is made up from 50% of the games total net sales. Because of this there are no set amounts for each prize division. The table below shows the percentage of prize pool allocated to each prize division and the odds of winning for each outcome:
|Prize Division||Prize Division Pool Percentage||Odds of Winning|
|Match 16||(Jackpot) 40%||1 in 43,046,721|
|Match 15||20%||1 in 14,384,907|
|Match 14||15%||1 in 4,782,969|
|Match 13||25%||1 in 1,594,323|
If there are no jackpot winners, the Division 1 prize fund will roll over into the next upcoming fixture list prize fund. This will continue to happen until the jackpot is won.
If there are no winners of the Match 15 division, the prize fund will be equally split between the Match 14 and Match 13 prize division winner(s). If there are no winners of the Match 14 division, the full prize fund will be given to the Match 13 division winner(s).
In the event that there are no winners in the Match 15, 14 and 13 divisions, the prize fund will roll to the next jackpot division (i.e. Match 16).
