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 chance 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, whereas 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:

Selection Price
Bonner SC v Sportfreunde Lotte Win-Draw-Win Home Win 2.29
Cittadella v Ascoli Goal Under/Over (1.5) Under 3.35
Strasbourg v St. Etienne 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) Under 1.23
NEC Nijmegen v Cambuur Asian (Draw No Bet) Home Win 2.50

 

As a straightforward accumulator this has a final price of 23.59, which will return you 235,899 UShs on a 10,000 USh bet. Pretty good. However, if you get one selection wrong, you get nothing.

As a Yankee, it looks like this:

Selections Price Stake Maximum Return
Cittadella: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Bonner SC: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win 7.67 909 6,973
Strasbourg: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Bonner SC: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win 2.82 909 2,564
Strasbourg: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Cittadella: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under 4.12 909 3,745
Strasbourg: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Cittadella: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Bonner SC: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win 9.44 909 8,582
NEC Nijmegen: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win and Bonner SC: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win 5.73 909 5,209
NEC Nijmegen: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win and Cittadella: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under 8.38 909 7,618
NEC Nijmegen: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win and Cittadella: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Bonner SC: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win 19.18 909 17,436
NEC Nijmegen: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win and Strasbourg: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under 3.08 909 2,800
NEC Nijmegen: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win and Strasbourg: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Bonner SC: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win 7.04 909 6,400
NEC Nijmegen: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win and Strasbourg: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Cittadella: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under 10.3 909 9,364
NEC Nijmegen: Asian (Draw No Bet) - Home Win and Strasbourg: 1st Half Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Cittadella: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under and Bonner SC: Win-Draw-Win - Home Win 23.59 909 21,445

 

Like this, if you get everything right you get a return of 92,136. This is not as much as above as we have split the stake across separate bets, at 909 UShs each. But, if you get, say, the first selection Cittadella: Goal Under/Over (1.5) - Under wrong you will still get a total return of 16,962. In fact with this bet you will definitely get something back if you get only two selections correct.
