Full Cover Bet in Horse Racing [2023] – How to place a Full Cover Bet 🏇

When betting on numerous horses, hedge bets are advantageous for gamblers who want to cover all available multiples. Multiple bets can be placed on each of the winning horses, so backing two horses is a “double”, three horses is a “treble” and so on. In an accumulator bet, a bettor can claim as many horses as he likes, but the bet must be successful if all of the selections win. The difference between a full cover bet and a multiple bet is that a full cover bet enables one or more phases of a multiple bet to fail. A Trixie, for example, is a three-selection bet, which means there are four separate bets based on the amount of combinations available; in this case, three doubles and one high. If one of the horses loses but the other two win, the player is paid the “double” of the two horses’ winnings.

Full cover bets come in a variety of shapes and sizes

Yankee Bet

4 picks, consisting of 11 possible bets that include 6 doubles, 4 triples, and an accumulator that includes all four horses.

Super Yankee Bet

This time, there are 10 doubles, 10 triples, 5 fourfold accumulators, and one fivefold accumulator in the Super Yankee 5 picks, which feature a total of 26 bets.

Heinz Bet

6 picks and so no named, because of the total of 57 varieties in this types of bet. 15 doubles, 20 triples, 15 fourfolds, 6 fivefolds, and a sixfold.

Super Heinz

There are seven selections totaling 120 bets, with 21 doubles, 35 triples, 35 fourfolds, 21 fivefolds, 7 sixes, and lastly sevenfold singles.

Goliath Bet

Consists of 8 selections with 247 bets, including 28 doubles, 56 triples, 70 fourfolds, 56 fivefolds, 28 sixes, 8 sevenfolds, and an eightfold.

The bigger the full cover bet, the more a bettor’s unit bet should be scrutinized. In the case of Goliath, for example, there are 247 separate bets in the combination, meaning that even a 20p unit bet would cost £ 49.40.

Full Cover Bet – Adding the single bets

All of the following bets are multiple, which means that at least two of the chosen horses must win in order to create at least a double winner. Simple bets, on the other hand, may be inserted in some situations to assure that a profit is made even if only one horse wins. A patent is a bet that comprises three horses over the course of seven bets; it’s the same bet as a Trixie, but with three minor changes.

Bookmakers also provide “lucky” bets, which are named as such because additional incentives are frequently offered if particular bet selections win. These bets are similar to the previous ones, but only have one option:

Lucky 15 – Same as a Yankee, but with four more singles.

Lucky 31 – Is a Super Yankee with five singles added to it.

Lucky 63 – This time, it’s a Heinz with the addition of six basic bets.

Other horse racing betting options

Alphabet is a more complex bet for a full cover bet with singles that are now available. The bettor selects six horses for this wager, with the first three and last three forming two separate wagers on the Patent. The second through fifth picks, inclusive, form a distinct Yankee, while the remaining six make up a six-fold accumulator bet. The name comes from the total number of bets, which is 26. Up-Down bets are made up of two simple bets in which the declared stake is placed as an additional bet on the second horse if the first horse wins. If both horses win, each initial bet is combined into a single bet on the other horse. After that, each winning bet is rewarded as if it had been drawn twice. Round Robin (Trixie), Flag (Yankee), or a Super Flag are examples of bets that can be placed by adding them up and down (Super Yankee). Bettors who want to keep their attention for an extended length of time use many of these full cover bets. If the first horse in a bet loses, single, double, or even triple accumulators are known to fail immediately. Assuming a full cover bet, the chance of a return exists for a period of time during the race.
