It might not be too obvious what bets like ‘Goliath' and ‘Super Yankee' are, but that doesn't mean they can't be fun bets that win you plenty of cash.
Below are a list of the various different bet types we offer and an explanation about what they involve:
A Single is a bet on 1 selection in 1 event. If your selection wins, so do you.
A Double is 1 bet made up of 2 selections in different events. Both selections must be successful for your bet to win.
A Treble is 1 bet involving 3 selections in different events. All 3 selections have to win for your bet to win.
A 4-Fold Accumulator is 1 bet made up of 4 selections in different events. If they all win, so do you. But if any of the selections lose, your bet does too.
Bet Types with more than 1 unit stake
The following bet types are all made up of more than one bet. Your stake is multiplied by the amount of bets involved and as long as one of the bets wins, you will receive some winnings (to get maximum winnings, all the bets must win).
A Patent has 7 bets, but is made up of 3 selections. Your 3 selections make up 3 single bets, 3 double bets and 1 treble bet.
A Trixie has 4 bets and totals 3 selections. It contains 3 doubles and 1 treble bet.
A Yankee has 11 bets involving 4 selections. You have 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 four-fold.
A Lucky 15 consists of 15 bets involving 4 selections. You will have 4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 four-fold.
A Canadian (sometimes known as a Super Yankee) has 5 selections which total 26 bets. There are 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four-folds plus 1 five-fold.
A Lucky 31 consists of 31 bets involving 5 selections. It has 5 singles, 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four-folds and 1 five-fold.
A Heinz is 57 bets from 6 selections. There are 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-folds, 6 five-folds and 1 six-fold.
A Lucky 63 is made up of 63 bets from 6 selections. You have 6 singles, 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-folds, 6 five-folds and 1 six-fold.
A Super Heinz is 120 bets from 7 selections. It has 21 doubles, 35 trebles, 35 four-folds, 21 five-folds, 7 six-folds and 1 seven-fold.
A Goliath consists of 247 bets from 8 selections. There are 28 doubles, 56 trebles, 70 four-folds, 56 five-folds, 28 six-folds, 8 seven-folds and 1 eight-fold.
Perm (or Permutation) Betting
If you've made more than 2 selections, it's possible to 'perm' them in a bet. This allows you to bet on all the doubles in 3 selections, all the trebles in 4 selections or all the 4-folds in 5 selections etc.
This is a convenient way to place a lot of multiple bets and can produce great winnings. For instance, if you place a perm bet of doubles from 4 selections you will receive some winnings if only 2 of your selections win.
To get the maximum winnings from this type of bet, all your selections have to win. When you place your bet, you'll be shown a box which calculates your possible winnings* - please be aware that these are your maximum winnings and will only be achieved if all your selections win.
* Please note that multiple returns shown on the bet slip are maximum potential returns, i.e. the most you can win. When a single dividend is part of the multiple, potential returns cannot be calculated and “n/a” is displayed in it's place.
