Below are possible reasons to this:
- One or more games on your betslip haven’t played to completion yet
- When it comes to amateur, reverse or small leagues it sometimes may take a couple of hours for the league to confirm the match result
- Due to maintenance or any unforeseen technical issues
- If all games on a betslip have played and completed, please allow up to an hour and contact us if you still haven’t got the winnings on your Betway account.
The reason could be that the betting type/market you selected is not what you had in mind. Our advice is that you always double check and make sure you understand the type of bet you are about to place. You are more than welcome to contact us should you have any issue in that regard.

You could be our next big winner when you play Betway's Jackpots today. New fixtures are loaded weekly based on the most popular leagues and games across the globe. Stand to win millions in cash on Jackpots such as the Pick 4, Pick 6 and Pick 15.
Why did I receive less than the prize amount offer?
- Because the prize amount is shared among all winners. E.g. if the prize amount is GHS 1,000 and 8 people won it means each person will receive GHS 125
- You chose a stake per line on your ticket that is lower than the default unit stake on the Jackpot. For example, in a 1X2 Pick 5 pool, a GHS 2 stake per line plays for GHS 5,000, a GHS 0.50 stake per line plays for GHS 1,250 and a GHS 0.20 stake per line plays for GHS 500
How many people won?
You can see how many winning units there are in any recently settled pool by following the below steps:
- Click on the Jackpot tab
- Then click on “Results” on the right inside of the page
- Select the option “Completed” and this will populate the list of Jackpots resulted
- Click on the relevant Jackpot and this will give you a prize breakdown
Why is the number of winning units (winners) not a whole number?
This is due to variable bet amounts placed. A full one unit is when you use GHS 4 to place a jackpot bet, but if you use for instance GHS 2 this will be considered as 0.5 unit instead 1 unit
How to place a Jackpot bet?
- Click on the Jackpot tab
- Select which Jackpot you would like to bet on
- Make your selections in each game
- The default bet amount is GHS 4, if you are happy with that please click on “Play for GHS 4”
How are Syndicate Prizes Split?
When a Syndicate wins a jackpot, the prize is split among all Syndicate contributors in proportion to the percentage of their contributions towards the ticket.
For example, if the total cost of a Syndicate ticket is 100 and you have contributed 10, you own 10% of that ticket. And if it goes on to win 1,000, you will receive 100, provided that it’s the only winning ticket for the pool.
How does a Syndicate Cash Out work?
- Syndicate tickets can receive Cash Out offers like regular tickets when they are eligible to win a prize
- Captains only may be able to accept the offer and will often use their social media profiles to communicate their Cash Out decisions or poll contributors on their opinion. So staying in touch with them on your preferred platform is a good idea
- All Syndicate contributors will be able to see available Cash Out offers, but only the Syndicate Captain can decide to cash out fully or partially
What happens if a syndicate isn’t fully funded?
If your Syndicate ticket does not get fully funded by the time the first game kicks off, all funds contributed (including yours) will be automatically returned to the respective contributors’ accounts and the ticket will be voided.
Visit our Jackpots page to learn more about being part of our Jackpot Syndicates. The Captain makes the selections and winnings are shared according to contributions.

Early cash out is an offer which allows you to get money back on your bet before the game you have bet on is over.
The amount of money you get back is determined at the time you accept the offer and will depend upon the current likelihood of the bet winning or not – so it could be greater or less than the initial stake, but never more than the initial potential return.
Gain the advantage by using your Early Cash Out feature, you don’t have to wait for your bets to settle before you can cash out.
