What is a Lucky 31 Bet?

What it is and how to use an online Lucky 31 betting calculator.

A Lucky 31 bet consists of thirty-one individual bets across a total of five different selections. For the bet to win, the individual must win one of these individual selections. These five selections are as follows:

  • 5 singles
  • 10 doubles
  • 10 trebles
  • 5 four-fold accumulator bets
  • 1 five-fold accumulator bets

For example, if you were to win a Lucky 31 bet, then you would need one of these selections to win. For example, if you were to receive five singles, then the bet would be won.

Lucky 31 bets

Lucky 31 bets are more than double the stake of it’s alternative Lucky 15. Therefore, this means that for every bet you place of £1, this totals £31. With the stakes being much higher (even than the already high stake of a Lucky 15), this also means that the total payout is much larger if the bet is to be successful.

This is because it is a lot more difficult to win a Lucky 31 bet than its predecessor the Lucky 15, never mind a Lucky 31. While they are certainly not impossible to win – with many people winning them every day, they are a lot more complicated than standard bets.

To get to grips with a Lucky 31 bet, we suggest playing around with the calculator, and experimenting with one or two low stake bets to see how exactly they work.

One of the more popular sports for Lucky 31 and Lucky 15 bets to be placed on is horse racing and formula one. This is because there is a vast number of selections and participants available to bet on.

Can you bet on an each-way bet with a Lucky 31?

Yes! Just like a Lucky 15, or alternatively a standard bet, you can also place an each-way bet when using a Lucky 31. Bear in mind, however, that this will double your stake. For example, let’s say you have £1 on each of the thirty-one individual bets, this will then change to £2 totalling for sixty-two pounds in total involved within the bet.

You may choose to utilise an each-way Lucky 31 bet on popular sports such as the horse racing or even the formula one. These are popular on these events as there is a wide number of different selections and participants involved – making for quite the event.

How to use the Lucky 31 betting calculator 

Much like the Lucky 15 bet calculator, the Lucky 31 calculator is also just as easy to use. First, enter your desired stake, whether or not you’d like your bet to go each way (this will double your stake), your preferred format of odds, and finally, the bet(s) themselves. Next, you must place each individual bet into the calculator. After this, the calculator will work out the total stake, return, and profit if the bet is to be successful and come through.
