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 Trixie

For example, you choose:

Cheltenham v CarlisleAsian (Draw No Bet) Home Win1.65
Vaduz v BaselGoal Under/Over (1.5) Under4.70
Shamrock Rovers v BohemiansMost Goal Equal3.25


As a straightforward accumulator this has a final price of 25.20, which will return you 252,038 UShs on a 10,000 USh bet. Pretty good. However, if you get one selection wrong, you get nothing.

As a Trixie, it looks like this:

SelectionsPriceStakeMaximum Return
Vaduz: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Cheltenham: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win 7.762,50019,400
Shamrock Rovers: Most Goal - Equal and Cheltenham: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win 5.362,50013,400
Shamrock Rovers: Most Goal - Equal and Vaduz: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under 15.282,50038,200
Shamrock Rovers: Most Goal - Equal and Vaduz: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Cheltenham: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win 25.22,50063,000


Like this, if you get everything right you get a return of 134,000. This is not as much as above as we have split the stake across 4 seperate bets, at 2,500 UShs each. But, if you get, say, the first selection Vaduz: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under wrong you will still get a total return of 13,406. In fact with this bet you will definately get something back if you get only two selections correct.
