What is a Super Heinz Bet?

What it is and how to use the Super-Heinz betting calculator

A Super-Heinz bet consists of 120 individual bets on a total of seven different selections. These selections are 21 double, 35 trebles, 35 four-fold accumulators, 21 five-fold accumulators, 7 six-fold accumulators, and 1 seven-fold accumulator.

As well as this, these Super-Heinz bets, which total 120 bets are popular on sporting events such as horse racing, the rugby world cup, and also football.

A common misconception with both Heinz bets and Super-Heinz bets is the stake amount. As there is a total of £120 bets, placing a £1 stake is actually equal to a £120 stake. Therefore, you will not be able to place as high as a bet without spending as much money. Likewise, if you were to place a stake of £10, you would actually be placing a total bet of £1200 bet. As you can see, the stake builds up quickly for these kinds of bets.

To win a Super-Heinz bet, you must win at least one of the seven selections provided by the bookmaker. Often, people seem to think that you have to win all of the selections for the bet to come through. However, winning one constitutes as a win – while winning more than one selection will increase the total pay-out of your bet.

One way to increase the likelihood of winning your selections is betting each way; this will be discussed later in this article.

How to use the Super-Heinz betting calculator 

Since there are a total of 120 individual bets within a Super-Heinz bet across seven different selections, it would be rather challenging to work out the total winnings before placing the bet by hand. Therefore, this is where the Super-Heinz betting calculator comes in.

To use the Super-Heinz betting calculator, first, enter your chosen stake into the calculator. However, remember that for every £1.00 in which you bet, this is actually equating to £120 – don’t get too carried away. Secondly, you are then required to enter the odds format provided by your bookmaker. Next, choose whether or not your bet is each-way and finally decide if Rule 4 applies to your bet.

Once these are entered into the calculator, it is time to enter the individual seven selections and the odds which they carry into the calculator. The odds are provided by the bookmaker and cannot be changed, not unless you can find better odds somewhere else.

Super-Heniz bets and each-way betting 

One fun twist on a Super-Heinz bet, which allows you to cover more ground, is each-way betting. This is extremely popular in sports such as football, rugby, and horse racing – this is by far the most popular and has been for years. However, when using an each-way bet, you need to remember that this doubles your initial stake. For example, if you are placing a stake of £1 on each of the 120 bets, then an each-way bet would, therefore, be a total of £240 covering the top finishing positions.
