The Lucky 15 bet remains very popular, both online and in betting shops. It is similar to a Yankee bet, but also includes 4 single bets. This makes it a lower variance bet than the Yankee, as you only need one of your 4 selections to win to ensure some kind of return.View Today’s Betting Markets Now!
Lucky 15 Bet
The bet contains four singles, six doubles, four trebles and one accumulator. We will take a look at an example of a £1 Lucky 15 wager, which would cost £15 in total…
Race one: Hilary’s Pride (won 3/1)
Race two: Abe Lincoln (lost 4/1)
Race three: South Georgia (won 3/1)
Race four: Exploratory (won 2/1)
In this case, seven of our £1 bets are winners. Three singles, three doubles and one treble.
Our single bet on Hilary’s Pride returned £4
Our single bet on South Georgia returned £4
Our single bet on Exploratory returned £3
Our double bet on Hilary’s Pride and South Georgia returned £16
Our double bet on Hilary’s Pride and Exploratory returned £12
Our double bet on South Georgia and Exploratory returned £12
Our treble bet on Hilary’s Pride, South Georgia and Exploratory returned £48
Therefore, our total return is £99, giving us a profit of £84. If all four horses had won, our total winnings would have been an incredible £658.90!
Even though the bettor only has to get one winner to get some kind of a return, the Lucky 15 bet provides the opportunity to ‘win big’, when all of the selections are winners. This is why it is such a popular bet.
Lucky 31 Bet
The Lucky 31 bet is similar to a lucky 15. However, we now need to pick a horse in five different races. Our bet consists of five singles, ten doubles, ten trebles, five fourfolds and one accumulator.
Here is an example. This is a £1 Lucky 31, costing £31 in total.
Race one: Robbie The Rogue (won 10/1)
Race two: Planet Hopper (lost 2/1)
Race Three: Great Plains (lost 3/1)
Race Four: Time Travel (lost 3/1)
Race Five: Wee Jimmy (lost 5/1)
In this case, things did not go so well for us. Despite finding a 10/1 winner, we have lost money. Only one of our 31 bets was a winner – the single bet on Robbie The Rogue. This bet returned £11 and our net loss is £20.
Lucky 63 Bet
The Lucky 63 bet covers six races. Six singles, fifteen doubles, twenty trebles, fifteen fourfolds, six fivefolds and one accumulator.
So, how much could we expect in winnings, if we made a £1 Lucky 63 bet (total cost £63) and all our six horses won at 3/1?
The answer is an incredible £15,624! A Lucky 63 bet can change your life, even with short-priced winners! But when it comes to potential returns, on bets like these, you’ll find even more value with RaceBets!…View Today’s Betting Markets Now!
