Lucky 63

What is a Lucky 63 Bet?

A Lucky 63 Bet is a popular form of betting, especially in horse racing. It’s a wager that involves six selections, combined into 63 different bets – hence the name. These bets are comprised of 6 singles, 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-folds, 6 five-folds, and 1 six-fold.

The beauty of a Lucky 63 bet is that it offers the punter a higher chance of a return, as you only need one of the selections to be successful in order to get a return.

How are the Winnings Calculated for a Lucky 63 Bet?

Calculating the winnings for a Lucky 63 bet can seem complex, but it’s actually quite straightforward once you understand the process. Let’s consider an example where you place a Lucky 63 bet with £10.

This means that each of the 63 bets within the Lucky 63 will have a stake of £10, making the total stake £630.

Now, let’s say that 3 of your 6 selections win. If these 3 selections had odds of 3/1, 4/1, and 5/1 respectively, you would calculate the return for each of the winning bets individually and then add them together.

For the singles, it would be £10 (stake) x 3 (odds), £10 x 4, and £10 x 5, which gives you £120. For the doubles, it would be £10 x [(3+1) x (4+1)] and £10 x [(3+1) x (5+1)], and so on.

The total return is then calculated by adding the return from the singles, doubles, and trebles.

While the initial outlay for a Lucky 63 can seem high, the potential returns can be substantial if several of your selections are successful.

What is a lucky 63 horse racing?

In horse racing, a Lucky 63 is a popular bet type due to its comprehensive coverage. It involves 63 bets on six horses in different races. The bet includes six singles, fifteen doubles, twenty trebles, fifteen four-fold accumulators, six five-fold accumulators, and one six-fold accumulator. This extensive combination provides a high potential for returns, especially if most or all of the horses win their races.

What’s the difference between a Heinz and Lucky 63?

The main difference between a Heinz and a Lucky 63 bet lies in the inclusion of single bets. A Heinz consists of 57 bets across six different selections, without any singles. These bets include 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-fold accumulators, 6 five-folds, and a six-fold accumulator. In contrast, a Lucky 63 includes all the bets of a Heinz plus six additional single bets, one on each selection, making a total of 63 bets.

Explain a lucky 63 bet?

A Lucky 63 bet is attractive for its balance between risk and reward. The single bets make it more forgiving than a simple accumulator or a Heinz, as you can get a return even with one winner. However, because of the high number of bets, the total stake is higher. For instance, a £1 Lucky 63 would cost £63, as there’s a £1 stake on each of the 63 bets.
