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
Stockport v Southport Double Chance Home/Draw 1.13
Chippa United v Mamelodi Sundowns Goal - No Goal Goal 2.20
Lugo v Osasuna Odd - Even Goal Odd 1.80
Waasland Beveren v Charleroi Handicap (0:1) Draw 3.80

 

As a straightforward accumulator this has a final price of 17.00, which will return you 170,042 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
Stockport: Double Chance - Home/Draw 1.13 667 753
Chippa United: Goal - No Goal - Goal 2.2 667 1,467
Chippa United: Goal - No Goal - Goal and Stockport: Double Chance - Home/Draw 2.49 667 1,660

Lugo: Odd - Even Goal - Odd and Stockport: Double Chance - Home/Draw 2.03 667 1,353
Lugo: Odd - Even Goal - Odd and Chippa United: Goal - No Goal - Goal 3.96 667 2,640
Lugo: Odd - Even Goal - Odd and Chippa United: Goal - No Goal - Goal and Stockport: Double Chance - Home/Draw 4.47 667 2,980
Waasland Beveren: Handicap (0:1) - Draw 3.8 667 2,533
Waasland Beveren: Handicap (0:1) - Draw and Stockport: Double Chance - Home/Draw 4.29 667 2,860
Waasland Beveren: Handicap (0:1) - Draw and Chippa United: Goal - No Goal - Goal 8.36 667 5,573

Waasland Beveren: Handicap (0:1) - Draw and Lugo: Odd - Even Goal - Odd 6.84 667 4,560
Waasland Beveren: Handicap (0:1) - Draw and Lugo: Odd - Even Goal - Odd and Stockport: Double Chance - Home/Draw 7.73 667 5,153
Waasland Beveren: Handicap (0:1) - Draw and Lugo: Odd - Even Goal - Odd and Chippa United: Goal - No Goal - Goal 15.05 667 10,033
Waasland Beveren: Handicap (0:1) - Draw and Lugo: Odd - Even Goal - Odd and Chippa United: Goal - No Goal - Goal and Stockport: Double Chance - Home/Draw 17 667 11,333

 

Like this, if you get everything right you get a return of 60,400. 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 Stockport: Double Chance - Home/Draw wrong you will still get a total return of 28,005. In fact with this bet you will definitely get something back if you get only one selection correct.
