What is a Lucky 15 Bet?
A Lucky 15 bet is a 4 selection bet consisting of 15 bets:
- 4 singles
- 6 doubles
- 4 trebles
- 1 four-fold accumulator
One winning selection guarantees a return but the more winnings selections you have the bigger the payout will be.
It can be used for a variety of sports but is most commonly used on football or horse racing. The lucky part of the name comes from the fact that bookmakers will offer bonuses depending on how many selections you get right.
An example of a Lucky 15 would be using the selections of Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United. If one or more of these selections wins their respective game, you will be guaranteed a payout. If two teams win, you will receive 3 payouts (2 singles and 1 double). If all 4 selections win, you receive 15 payouts (4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 fourfold accumulator.) Different bookies offer different bonuses for 1 or 2 wins so it’s worth checking the terms of each bookmaker.
