LUCKY 15 BET
The Lucky 15 bet derives its name from the fact that it comprises of 15 different bets on a total of four selections. As we have come across before in our guide, the inclusion of singles means this is a full coverage bet. You only need to have one winner included to see some return on your initial stake.
To place a Lucky 15 bet, you must choose four applicable selections and choose your stake per line (note the combined number of selections is 15, so the total stake is 15 x unit stake/stake per line).
Once you have done your homework on a day’s racing or a particular race meeting, the Lucky 15 is a good way of combining selections and covering all permutations to give you the best chance of earning a profit if you are successful.
WIN LUCKY 15
As we have discussed previously in our guide, starting prices can help determine whether or not a ‘win only’ or an ‘each-way’ Lucky 15 is the best option when placing your bet.
When you have selected your four horses for this bet, if they are all well fancied for their races and therefore relatively short in the betting, it is probably best to go with a win only Lucky 15. As with all multiple bet types, the more winners you can pack into your bet, the higher the profits will soar!
With the Lucky 15, the dream ticket is to have four winners. In this case, the fourfold line of the bet clicks and you will be looking at a handsome return.
Let’s take a Lucky 15 bet example of a win only bet on racing at Sedgefield:
EACH-WAY LUCKY 15
As with other multiples, the each-way option means you could see a good return on the initial stake simply by selecting four horses that are placed in their respective races.
Lots of punters will deploy an each-way Lucky 15, for example, on the Cheltenham Festival or at Royal Ascot to combine their main fancies across the entire four/five days of the meeting.
However, the nature of a Lucky 15 means that there are also many stopping points between the £30 stake and the jackpot payout that your bet could return.
For example, if all four horses are placed, the bet would pay you £1632.50, ensuring you have a profit of more than £1600 for one bet on the Cheltenham Festival.
When you are using selections at a variety of starting prices such as in Lucky 15 as explained above, you may want to consider going online to find a Lucky 15 Bet Calculator. A Bet Calculator Lucky 15 will outline the exact returns your bet will provide, depending on how many legs are successful.
You can of course use Lucky 15 betting to combine applicable selections across any and all sports covered that you wish to bet on.
In a Lucky 15 football bet, for example, you could choose to select four first goalscorers in Premier League matches and combine them. At decent odds, this form of Lucky 15 betting can sometimes bring about significant returns for relatively small initial outlays.
