Full Cover Bets

A Full Cover bet is one accumulator bet which has been split into smaller bets that cover much more possibilities.

What does this mean? For example, if you choose three selections in your bet, all three of them have to be correct for you to get a return. In a full cover bet you split the bet up. What this means is that you have a much higher chance of getting a return: even if part of your bet is correct, you can win on it. However, if you win ALL of your selections, generally you will win less than if you put your selections on a single bet.

Full Cover bets are so called because they cover all available multiple bets over a given number of selections. Some include singles as well. And they normally come with specific names: A Trixie is four bets using three selections. A Patent is the same as a Trixie but also includes all the single bets. A Yankee covers four selections, whereas a Canadian (or a Super Yankee) uses five selections. A Heinz is so called because there are 57 different bets. The baked bean manufacturer Heinz used to advertise 57 different varieties, hence, a Heinz, which is based on six selections. The Goliath - our biggest current offering - goes up to 247 different bets.

Example: A Lucky15

For example, you choose:

Selection Price
Jeonbuk v Daegu First half HT Home 1.90
Liaoning v Tianjin Songjiang Most Goal Second Half 2.00
Gamba Osaka v Kawasaki Win-Draw-Win Home Win 2.45
Red Star Belgrade v Rudar Pljevlja 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) Over 1.79

 

As a straightforward accumulator this has a final price of 16.66, which will return you 166,649 UShs on a 10,000 USh bet. Pretty good. However, if you get one selection wrong, you get nothing.

As a Lucky15, it looks like this:

Selections Price Stake Maximum Return
Jeonbuk: First half - HT Home 1.9 667 1,267
Liaoning: Most Goal - Second Half 2 667 1,333
Liaoning: Most Goal - Second Half and Jeonbuk: First half - HT Home 3.8 667 2,533

Red Star Belgrade: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Over and Gamba Osaka: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win and Jeonbuk: First half - HT Home 8.33 667 5,553
Red Star Belgrade: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Over and Gamba Osaka: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win and Liaoning: Most Goal - Second Half 8.77 667 5,847
Red Star Belgrade: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Over and Gamba Osaka: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win and Liaoning: Most Goal - Second Half and Jeonbuk: First half - HT Home 16.66 667 11,107

 

Like this, if you get everything right you get a return of 55,160. This is not as much as above as we have split the stake across separate bets, at 667 UShs each. But, if you get, say, the first selection Jeonbuk: First half - HT Home wrong you will still get a total return of 18,584. In fact with this bet you will definitely get something back if you get only one selection correct.
