What is a Lucky 31 Bet
A lucky 31 bet is the slightly bigger brother to the very popular lucky 15 bet. Instead of four selections, the lucky 31 covers five selections, but offers the same great full coverage as a lucky 15 does. It is used by many people who bet on horse racing, but can be used on any sport and give you a pay out even for just one winner out of five.
Alongside giving you a pay out for just one winner from five, the lucky 31 bet also gives you the potential to win a huge amount because it covers every possible bet. This means if you have five winners you will have 31 different winning bets, including a huge five selection accumulator and many other bets. However, having this great coverage does cost and a lucky 31 bet will cost you 31 x your stake money, meaning a £1 lucky 31 costs £31. For this reason, the people who play them often play to small stakes, in the hope of landing a few winners.
The lucky 31 comes into its own if you happen to land four or five winners in your bet. If you are lucky enough to do that a big return awaits you. Even just three winners out of five would still give you seven winning bets, including one treble so the returns for that would add up to a nice amount.
If you have four winners out of five you will still have 15 different winning bets, four singles, six doubles, four trebles and one four fold accumulator. If you do happen to have five winners then your winning bets will be five singles, ten doubles, ten trebles, five four-fold accumulators and one five-fold accumulator. This means a very nice pay day for you.
A lucky 31 bet may cost 31 x your stake money, but it does offer full coverage over five selections. It is not limited to horse racing and can be placed on any sport. If you have just one or two winners you will receive a return from the bet, but when you start picking three, four or maybe even five winners, your bets will begin to give you a great pay out.
The potential to win big is what draws people towards the lucky 31 bet. However, the added bonus of a pay out when you have just one or two winners means that you will see a return on your bet where you wouldn’t normally if you had placed an accumulator on your selections. This is what keeps people coming back for more bets, because they see a return and don’t have to wait a long time to get paid like they would with an accumulator.
