How To Place A Lucky 15 Bet

Multiple Bets – The Lucky 15 Explained

A Lucky 15 bet is a special form of accumulator bet which requires you to make four selections. It can be used for a variety of sports but is most common in horse racing or football.

A Lucky 15 is a wager on four selections and consists of 15 separate bets. These 15 bets are:

• 4 singles

• 6 doubles

• 4 trebles and

• 1 fourfold accumulator

One winning selection will guarantee a return. The more selections are correct, the higher the payout.

For example, you may select a Lucky 15 bet featuring the selections of Chelsea, Real Madrid, Celtic and Manchester United. If one or more of these teams wins their respective match, you will be guaranteed a payout. If two of the teams win, you will receive three payouts (two singles and one double). If all four teams win, you receive fifteen payouts (4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 fourfold accumulator.)

Using our onsite Betting Calculator can help you work out your potential return from a Lucky 15 bet. By entering the odds of your four selections, the calculator can work out what your returns would be.

It is easy to place a Lucky 15 bet online with Paddy Power. Once you have logged into your internet account, you can add the four selections you wish to make to your betslip one at a time. Your betslip will then give you options regarding the type of bet you wish to place and you choose ‘Lucky 15’.

You then have to decide what your ‘unit stake’ will be. The ‘unit stake’ is the amount that you wish to wager on each of the 15 bets. For example, if you bet a £1 (or €1) ‘unit stake’ on a Lucky 15 bet, it would cost you £15 (or €15).

The ‘Lucky’ part of the name of this and other similar bets comes from the bookmaker’s practice of offering bonuses for one or more winners. This sometimes included ‘double the odds’ if only one of your selections is a winner.

For punters familiar with betting terms, a Lucky 15 is the equivalent to a Yankee plus 4 singles.
