Multiples Explained

So it can sometime be hard figuring out what your betting on when picking a fancy multiple bet – so we thought why not make it a little easier for you and explain whats involved in each of them:

  • Lucky 15 – This covers four legs and includes all four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a fourfold for a total of 15 bets. Many bookmakers pay out at bonus odds if you only get one winner.
  • Lucky 31 – As above but with five legs giving a total of 31 bets.
  • Lucky 63 – As above but six legs for 63 bets in total.
  • Patent – This bet consists of 7 bets in total so any bet you place online will be 7 times the stake you select. In basic terms the patent bet is 3 Singles, 3 doubles and 1 treble.
  • Trixie – A Trixie is like a Patent but without the singles. Betting without the singles is common as your return should only one outcome win is usually quite small compared to the total stake so people prefer to base the bet on at least two outcomes winning. A Trixie therefore is three selections and three double and one treble for four bets in total.
  • Yankee – Like a Trixie but four legs, so 11 separate bets requiring at least two legs to win for any return.
  • Canadian (or Super Yankee) – Five legs, 26 separate bets and again at least two selections needed to win.
  • Heinz – Six legs, comprising 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 fourfolds, six fivefolds and one sixfold ACCA (accumulator).
  • Super Heinz – As per a Heinz but seven selections totalling 120 separate bets.
  • Goliath – The Big One! Eight picks, 247 bets in total! A 10p Goliath will set you back almost £25 and whilst two wins will yield a return you probably need at least three or four (depending on the odds) to make a profit.
