Jackpot Pools – a popular game with a long tradition

Jackpot Pools are a very traditional method of betting on popular sports. The original concept was introduced as ‘Uri’ in 1923 by a British retail company from Liverpool called Littlewoods. Pools rose in popularity in the post-war period in Britain when most households would enter the ‘football pools’ every weekend.

How do pools work?

Pools are sport prediction games where you predict a series of sporting outcomes correctly on a betting slip ticket. The more predictions you get right, the more money you win. Get all your predictions right to hit the jackpot. There are no odds involved – each winner's payoff depends simply on the number of players on the ticket and the number of overall winners. Tickets with more than one player are called syndicates.

So many ways to predict big sports
