4D Jackpot Differences IV
Now now, it’s getting tedious… right? You must be thinking now, Why are there so many differences to the 4D Jackpot one ah? But hey, please bear with us! We will describe to you the differences to the 4D Jackpot that Sabah 88 offers. (Last 4D Jackpot article I promise) So strap on, and let’s get started!
Sabah 4D Jackpot
First & foremost, the name – Sabah 4D Jackpot. Unlike it’s competitors from the peninsular, Sabah 88 likes to make it known to all that the state offers 4D lottery as well. Hence, all the lottery games that the company offers will definitely have a “Sabah-“ named next to it. Call it patriotism or an identity as you may, but this certainly makes sense over the course of the article.
Of course, the most notable difference we should note here is that the minimum amount payable for the Sabah 4D Jackpot is only…..wait for it….. RM1!!
Want to buy your 4D Jackpot, but too lazy to pick your number pairs? Well you can do so with Quick Pick! So what’s the difference between this & Lucky Pick? None! Aside from the cosmetic difference, the core concept of this bet type is the same as Lucky Pick from our previous articles. Besides, you should take note that it only costs RM1 to form your Lucky pair of numbers. (Meaning there’s no extra charge; How great is that!)Also, there will be a “QPK” indicated right next to the number that you opt for a quick pick.
The System bet that’s offered by Sabah 88 is essentially the same as the ones offered by Magnum & Sports Toto as described in our 4D Jackpot article. While this may indeed be true, the “system” (pun intended) that Sabah 88 offers has some constraints to it. As a result of that, the constraints have categorised the System Bet into:
- Ordinary System Bet
- Smart System Bet
Ordinary System Bet?
An ordinary system bet is… like its name suggests, a system bet that consists of ordinary 4D numbers.(None of the Permutations,Lucky Picks & what not) Hence, you will technically be buying combination pairs of your favourite numbers, to increase your chances of winning the Jackpot! To illustrate some example of the Ordinary System Bet, we have the table below:
Note:As the table above has illustrated, the minimum set for the ordinary system bet is 3 (SB3), & the maximum amount of sets is 20 (SB20)
To make things easier for your to calculate, the system bet uses the following formula:
Bet Amount(RM): SB(n) x (n-1) / 2
No. of Pairs: Total Pairing Combinations
Smart System Bet?
So what is this Smart System Bet? It is in essence, a system bet that utilises the combination bet types. So, you can expect a combination of Quick Picks, Rolls & Permutations on top of the ordinary bet type for a game of 4D Jackpot. With that in mind, it can certainly be said that there’s no maximum limits of sets available to buy with the Smart System Bet….. only a maximum limit to how much you have in your wallet (cough). The bet amount can be calculated with the formula in green above.

The Sabah State Tax
While it may be cheaper to place a 4D Jackpot bet with Sabah 88 than it’s competitors, however you should take note that you will be liable for 15% of Sabah State Tax (SST). In truth, you’re definitely liable to pay for the SST regardless of which lottery company you go to if you’re in Sabah (or Sarawak).
How to Win
With a smaller minimum bet amount, the minimum Jackpot that you have a chance of winning is certainly smaller as well.The Sabah 4D Jackpot is in all fairness based on the 23 winning numbers drawn in the company’s 4D draw. The principle to winning a prize is essentially the same as the other company’s as described in the 4D Jackpot article. In spite of its similarities to the hows, the whats (as in what you can win) are somewhat different due to the reduced minimum bet. For that purpose, we illustrate the table of winnings below.
The Table of Winnings
* Winnings are calculated & displayed as per RM1 bet each.
^ The cascading effect starts when the Jackpot 1 has accrued RM8,000,000 & above.
# The cascade amount is based on Jackpot 1’s cascaded amount, & will only be paid out if there are no winner(s) for Jackpot 1.
** The reduced prize money rule applies if the total payout exceeds RM5,000,000 for the 3rd,4th & 5th Prizes.
