Coral Football Jackpot
There aren’t too many offers that have stood the test of time, but the Coral Football Jackpot, which is available online and via the Coral sports mobile app, is certainly an exception. In fact, it’s a promotion that has been running since the start of the 2013/2014 season and has been gaining the interest of thousands of football acca lovers ever since.
What Is The Coral Football Jackpot?
The Coral Football Jackpot is a weekly prediction game that requires you to predict the outcome (home win, draw or away win) of 15 pre-selected fixtures.
If you correctly predict all 15 results you will win a guaranteed jackpot of £100,000. For every week that the jackpot is not won then the overall pool will increase until someone hits it.
Coral Football Jackpot is open to new and existing customers.

Coral Football Jackpot Prize Structure
- All 15 Selections – Correctly predict the results of all 15 matches you’ll win a share of a £100,000 guaranteed jackpot pool. The jackpot pool represents 70% of the overall net pool. For example, if the net pool is £1million, then the jackpot pool will be £700k. If you are the sole winner then it’s all yours – if there are multiple winners then it will be split.
- 1st Consolation Dividend – Correctly predict 14/15 results and you’ll win a share of the 1st consolation dividend which represents 20% of the net pool. So if we use the above example of a £1million net pool, you’ll stand to win £200K.
- 2nd Consolation Dividend – Correctly predict 13/15 results and you’ll win a share of the 2nd consolation dividend which represents 10% of the net pool. Again, using the above example, this would equate to £100K.
At the time of writing, the biggest jackpot of a cool £5.3million was scooped by four lucky punters which culminated in Everton’s victory over QPR on Monday 15th December 2014.
There have, of course, also been a number of near-misses. Kate Muir, a Scottish barmaid, managed to bag herself £52,000 for predicting 14 correct results – all from a solitary £1.
Elsewhere, Jim Wyatt, a 54-year-old married man from Hereford, won £71,037.40, again from just a £1 bet on the Football Jackpot from Coral for correctly predicting 13 football matches.
