Since the opening of the BetRivers Online Sportsbook in PA, the sportsbook has offered something called the Jackpot Parlay. If you’re the type of sportsbettor drawn to the chance of a big prize — and who isn’t — the Jackpot Parlay feature is an excellent way to get started with parlays.
The BetRivers Jackpot Parlay is available at both BetRivers mobile and through the BetRivers web-based platform. The feature is also available at sister site PlaySugarHouse.
BetRivers Jackpot Parlay can be found under the Popular section of the BetRivers sportsbook. Once clicking on “Jackpot Parlay,” BetRivers will automatically generate an 8-combo bet parlay. The ticket is automatically generated using eight betting lines from defaults that have been set: “All Sports,” “Next 24 Hours,” an “8 Combo bet” and a $1 bet.
The amount that you can potentially win from the bet is displayed at the top of the ticket. It’s likely to be a big number and yes, the odds of winning the ticket are very steep. But that is the nature of parlays, especially when you have added a large number of underdogs. But they sometimes do hit, and when they do, they can pay big.
Adjusting your Jackpot Parlay
Perhaps the best part of the Jackpot Parlay at Betrivers PA online sportsbook is that they are customizable. Adjust the sports you want included, the timeframe, the number of betting lines as well as the betting amount. Each time you adjust the betting lines, the potential win of the jackpot will change.
Sports: By default, “All Sports” is set by default but users also have the option to select specific single sports or use a combination of multiple sports.
Timeframe: 24 hours is the default, but also change the filter by the next hour, next 12 hours or even live matches.
Combo Bets: Eight is the default set by BetRivers but also adjust from 3 to 10 betting lines.
Bet Amount: Bet $1 by default, but also adjust based on the number of combo bets you added.

Is it a replacement for parlays?
The BetRivers Jackpot Parlays is a very useful and fun feature to quickly create a high-paying parlay. It is customizable but it isn’t a replacement for all your parlays needs?
While the feature does offer some quick customization it is missing one important aspect to replace the way you bet parlays — specificity. While it’s great at generating random parlays using some general criteria, you can’t add specific bets to your Jackpot Wager ticket. You can remove specific betting lines that you do not like and add another one through by adding another combo bet, but it doesn’t offer a way to add a specific betting line you may want to add to your ticket.
But despite this drawback, the Jackpot Parlay is indeed a quick way to generate a parlay betting ticket that could pay off big. And that may be just enough for some sports bettors who just want the chance at a huge score.
