What is a Heinz Bet
A Heinz bet is a multiple bet that offers full coverage with the exception of singles on six selections. It can be placed on any sport and is exactly the same as placing a lucky 63 bet, without the singles on each selection, which is why there are six less bets in a Heinz. Apart from not covering the singles, these two bets are the same.
Due to no singles in the bet, you need to have two winners or more to have a pay out from a Heinz bet, one winner and you will receive nothing back. The bet has 57 different bets in total, these are 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-fold accumulators, 6 five-fold accumulators and one six fold on all your selections. This does meant that the bet costs 57 x your stake money, so a 20p Heinz would cost you a total of £11.40 and because of this, the people who play them often use small stakes.
The bet offers full coverage on everything apart from singles, meaning that it doesn’t matter which two of your selections win, you will still get a return. Should you have two winning selections then you will have one winning bet, which is a double on those two selections. For three winners you would receive four winning bets, which is one treble on all three and the three different combinations of doubles on those.
Four winning selections would give you 11 winning bets, six doubles, four trebles and one four-fold accumulator on all four selections. Five winning selections would give you 26 winning bets, ten doubles, ten trebles, five four-fold accumulators and one five-fold accumulator. Lastly, if you are lucky enough to get six winners out of six then every one of your 57 bets will be settled as a winner. You can see how these bets can quickly add up as you have more winners and this is why they are so popular with punters.
The Heinz bet gives punters the potential to win big, and anything over four winning selections would do that. However, it also gives a pay out for just two winners meaning you will receive something if that is all you have. This may not be a huge pay out, but at least you see something back for your winning selections, something which doesn’t happen when you place an accumulator bet.
A Heinz offers punters full coverage, apart from single bets on the selections which means that if you have two winners, it doesn’t matter which two they are, you will see a return on your bet. The small pay outs keep people interested, along with the potential for a huge pay out if you can land six winners.
