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 Yankee

For example, you choose:

SelectionPrice
Sorrento v Perth SCFirst half HT Away2.75
Atlas v TijuanaFirst half HT Away3.05
Mickleover Sports v HednesfordOdd - Even Goal Odd1.85
Orgryte v Varbergs BoISFirst half HT Away3.35

 

As a straightforward accumulator this has a final price of 51.98, which will return you 51,982 KShs on a 1000 KSh bet. Pretty good. However, if you get one selection wrong, you get nothing.

As a Yankee, it looks like this:

SelectionsPriceStakeMaximum Return
Atlas: First half - HT Away and Sorrento: First half - HT Away 8.399097,627
Mickleover Sports: Odd - Even Goal - Odd and Sorrento: First half - HT Away 5.099094,627
Mickleover Sports: Odd - Even Goal - Odd and Atlas: First half - HT Away 5.649095,127

Orgryte: First half - HT Away and Mickleover Sports: Odd - Even Goal - Odd and Atlas: First half - HT Away and Sorrento: First half - HT Away 51.9890947,255

 

Like this, if you get everything right you get a return of 160,264. This is not as much as above as we have split the stake across 11 seperate bets, at 909 KShs each. But, if you get, say, the first selection Atlas: First half - HT Away wrong you will still get a total return of 34,128. In fact with this bet you will definately get something back if you get only two selections correct.
