Full Cover Bets

A Full Cover bet is one accumulator bet which has been split into smaller bets that cover much more possibilities.

What does this mean? For example, if you choose three selections in your bet, all three of them have to be correct for you to get a return. In a full cover bet you split the bet up. What this means is that you have a much higher change of getting a return: even if part of your bet is correct, you can win on it. However, if you win ALL of your selections, generally you will win less than if you put your selections on a single bet.

Full Cover bets are so called because they cover all available multiple bets over a given number of selections. Some include singles as well. And they normally come with specific names: A Trixie is four bets using three selections. A Patent is the same as a Trixie but also includes all the single bets. A Yankee covers four selections, where as a Canadian (or a Super Yankee) uses five selections. A Heinz is so called because there are 57 different bets. The baked bean manufacturer Heinz used to advertise 57 different varieties, hence, a Heinz, which is based on six selections. The Goliath - our biggest current offering - goes up to 247 different bets.

Example: A Patent

For example, you choose:

SelectionPrice
Nimes v BrestAsian (Draw No Bet) Away Win1.85
River Plate v CA Boca JuniorsGoal Under/Over (0.5) Under6.95
Brentford v Burton AlbionFirst half HT Away3.75

 

As a straightforward accumulator this has a final price of 48.22, which will return you 48,216 KShs on a 1000 KSh bet. Pretty good. However, if you get one selection wrong, you get nothing.

As a Patent, it looks like this:

SelectionsPriceStakeMaximum Return
Nimes: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win 1.851,4292,643
River Plate: Goal Under/Over (0.5) - Under 6.951,4299,929
River Plate: Goal Under/Over (0.5) - Under and Nimes: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win 12.861,42918,371
Brentford: First half - HT Away 3.751,4295,357
Brentford: First half - HT Away and Nimes: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win 6.941,4299,914
Brentford: First half - HT Away and River Plate: Goal Under/Over (0.5) - Under 26.061,42937,229
Brentford: First half - HT Away and River Plate: Goal Under/Over (0.5) - Under and Nimes: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win 48.221,42968,886

 

Like this, if you get everything right you get a return of 152,329. This is not as much as above as we have split the stake across 7 seperate bets, at 1,429 KShs each. But, if you get, say, the first selection Nimes: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Away Win wrong you will still get a total return of 52,518. In fact with this bet you will definately get something back if you get only one selection correct.
