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 Lucky31

For example, you choose:

Selection Price
Maidenhead v Ebbsfleet Score - No Score No Score - Home 2.95
Coalville v Warrington Win-Draw-Win Away Win 2.20
Rennes v Dijon Half-Time Full-Time Home-Home 2.35
Vorskla Poltava v Illichivets Goal Under/Over (0.5) Over 1.02
VFB Auerbach v Cottbus Asian (Draw No Bet) Away Win 1.15

 

As a straightforward accumulator this has a final price of 17.89, which will return you 178,900 UShs on a 10,000 USh bet. Pretty good. However, if you get one selection wrong, you get nothing.

Like this, if you get everything right you get a return of 58,994. This is not as much as above as we have split the stake across separate bets, at 323 UShs each. But, if you get, say, the first selection Maidenhead: Score - No Score - No Score - Home wrong you will still get a total return of 14,696. In fact with this bet you will definitely get something back if you get only one selection correct.
