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 change 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, where as 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 Patent

For example, you choose:

SelectionPrice
Chester v WrexhamAsian (Draw No Bet) Away Win2.10
Nantes v PSGGoal Under/Over (3.5) Over3.05
Hartlepool United v StevenageFirst half HT Away2.70

 

As a straightforward accumulator this has a final price of 17.29, which will return you 172,935 UShs on a 10,000 USh bet. Pretty good. However, if you get one selection wrong, you get nothing.

As a Patent, it looks like this:

SelectionsPriceStakeMaximum Return
Chester: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win 2.11,4293,000
Nantes: Goal Under/Over (3.5) - Over 3.051,4294,357
Nantes: Goal Under/Over (3.5) - Over and Chester: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win 6.411,4299,157
Hartlepool United: First half - HT Away 2.71,4293,857
Hartlepool United: First half - HT Away and Chester: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win 5.671,4298,100
Hartlepool United: First half - HT Away and Nantes: Goal Under/Over (3.5) - Over 8.241,42911,771
Hartlepool United: First half - HT Away and Nantes: Goal Under/Over (3.5) - Over and Chester: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win 17.291,42924,700

 

Like this, if you get everything right you get a return of 64,943. This is not as much as above as we have split the stake across 7 seperate bets, at 1,429 UShs each. But, if you get, say, the first selection Chester: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win wrong you will still get a total return of 19,979. In fact with this bet you will definately get something back if you get only one selection correct.
