## What is a Trixie Bet?

A Trixie Bet is a popular type of wager in the world of sports betting. It is a multiple bet that consists of four bets involving three selections in different events.

The bet includes three doubles and one treble. To gain a return from a Trixie Bet, at least two of the selections must be successful. A Trixie Bet is considered a ‘full cover’ bet as it offers full coverage on all possible combinations of multiples from the selected events.

It is a higher stake wager that potentially offers significant returns, making it a favorite among more experienced bettors.

## How are the Winnings Calculated for a Trixie Bet?

The calculation of winnings for a Trixie Bet can seem complex at first, but once you understand the process, it becomes straightforward.

The total return from a Trixie Bet is the sum of the returns from the three doubles and one treble.

Let’s illustrate with an example: Suppose you place a Trixie Bet with a stake of £10 on three events, each with odds of 3/1. If all three selections win, you would calculate the return for each double and the treble, then add them together.

For each double, you would calculate as follows: £10 (your stake) * 3/1 (the odds) = £30 winnings, plus your £10 stake back, gives £40. Since there are three doubles, you would multiply £40 by 3, giving £120.

The treble is calculated similarly: £10 * 3/1 * 3/1 * 3/1 = £120 winnings, plus your £10 stake back, gives £130.

Adding the returns from the doubles and the treble together (£120 + £130), your total return would be £250.

Remember, this example assumes that all selections win. If only two selections win, only the doubles involving those two selections would return a payout. The other double and the treble would be lost.

A Trixie Bet, while requiring a higher initial stake, can result in substantial returns if two or more of the selections are successful.

### How many winners do you need for a return on a Trixie?

A Trixie bet requires at least two winners to gain a return. This type of wager consists of four bets on three different selections, typically in different events. The four bets include three doubles and one treble. If one of your selections wins, this does not guarantee a return, as single bets are not included in a Trixie. You need at least two of the three selections to win to get a return, coming from one of the double bets.

### How much is a Trixie Bet?

The cost of a Trixie bet is four times the value of the individual stake, as it covers four separate bets. For instance, if you wish to place a £1 Trixie bet, the total stake would be £4, as there are three £1 double bets and one £1 treble bet included in the Trixie. This makes it more expensive than a single three-fold accumulator, but it offers greater insurance as you can still gain a return even if not all selections are successful.

### How is a Trixie Bet calculated?

The calculation of a Trixie bet involves adding together the returns from each of the successful doubles and the treble, if applicable. For instance, if two selections win, you calculate the return from the one successful double bet. If all three selections win, you calculate the returns from each of the three doubles and the one treble. The total payout depends on the odds of the winning selections and the stake.
