Aardvark Jackpots are designed with diverse components that aim to individualize each Jackpot separately. This is extremely useful whenever an administrator wishes to set-up a custom Jackpot for various situations.

When launching a new Jackpot, an administrator can make it distinctive by providing information about the Start Amount, Minimum and Maximum Drop size, Participation time and Expiration time of the Jackpot's Winner Slip. Furthermore, an administrator can apply the Jackpot to the Organization or Shop with some additional Rules, such as minimum bets and minimum stake. This is great for encouraging Punters to bet on multiple bets. Open Jackpots screen by selecting Jackpots in the upper menu

Q: How player participates in the Jackpot?
A: For the player to participate in the Jackpot, first the player must bet on a game and the betting slip MUST LOSE. Only the 'loser' type of slip/s can participate in the Jackpot. Furthermore, for the player to participate in the Jackpot, the player must comply with that given Jackpot's rules. These rules usually are different and unique per Jackpot. For example, player's stake must be minimum of 3 EUR or the player must bet on at least 2 bets in order to participate in the Jackpot
Q: Jackpot is full, yet, no winners of the Jackpot, why?
A: The first and most common reason is that there are NO Participants in the Jackpot draw. That is, Slips don't comply with the Jackpot's participation rules. These rules may be different per each Jackpot. Exceptionally, there is a possibility that all betting slips were winners and the jackpot can't drop until there are no losing Slips.
Q: Why I cannot delete Jackpot?
A: It is impossible to remove Jackpots in Aardvark since they contain sensitive financial data which must be accumulated. However, an administrator can disable Jackpot through that Jackpot's settings.
  • An amount is randomly selected between Drop min and Drop max for the current Jackpot to reach, before it drops.
  • When Start amount is set to be more than 0, a hidden Jackpot is created, alongside a current Jackpot, to collect the specified amount, so the next Jackpot starts with Start amount or more.
