Lucky 15 bets
With a lucky 15 consisting of fifteen individual bets across four different selections, this also means the stake is much higher. For example, placing £1 on a Lucky 15 bet would cost a total of £15 as there is a total of fifteen bets, each with a £1 on.
Therefore, when placing much larger bets, you will be required to place a much bigger stake. Although the risk is higher, the payout is a lot more attractive – as you can probably imagine.
This is mainly because it is much more difficult to win a Lucky 15 with the odds being stacked against you, however, make no mistake that plenty of customers win every single day.
Lucky 15 bets are popular to be placed on horse racing events. For example, you may place all fifteen of your bets on a total of four different horse races throughout the day, usually requiring them to be on the same event). You must then win the set number of selections to win the bet.
How to use the Lucky 15 bet calculator
The Lucky 15 bet calculator is super easy to use; simply enter your stake, whether or not it’s each way, your desired odds format, and finally the bet itself. You must then place each odds for all four selections into the calculator. The calculator will then work out the totals for each of the following:
- Total stake
- Total return
- Total profit
How is it possible to make an each-way bet on with a Lucky 15?
With an each-way bet doubling your original odds, this is no different for a Lucky 15. Therefore, this means that for every £15 (1 bet), you will instead be placing £30 on to cover the top finishing positions. Once again, this is popular in horse racing and formula one.
We recommend playing around with Lucky 15 bets, trying your odds first at a much lower stake perhaps £15, then once you get the hang of it increasing this to a much higher stake maybe even including an each-way bet on the horse racing or formula one – this is usually where the big money is.
Each way bets, however, are not exclusive to these two sports. You can find each-way bets on a wide range of different sports such as Golf and Football.
Lucky 15 bets consist of fifteen individual bets across four different selections. You must win one of these selections in order for the bet to register as a winner. We suggest starting low and playing around with Lucky 15 bets, then once you’re confidence has increased, upping the stake and trying your odds to receive a big cash payout.
