Betway offers both a standard jackpot and a megajackpot. For the standard jackpot you have to guess correctly 13 games and for the mega jackpot you have to guess 18 games correctly. In the standard jackpot you can win tens of millions of shillings, while in the megajackpot you could win hundreds of millions of shillings.
