# Horse racing betting strategy: Lucky 15, Lucky 31 & Lucky 63 bets explained here

• Written by David Bet

If you don’t know what these type of bets are then let us explain. Lucky bets are the  most popular multiple bets in the UK today. Punters select a number of different horses (or it can be used with greyhound races) and then they make a series of different bets within one. Obviously the more of your selections that win, then the bigger the payout you’ll receive as the more bets out of the Lucky bet that you will win upon. Find here details, examples and bookie promotions.

## LUCKY 15

1. A Lucky 15 consists of fifteen bets involving four selections from different events, combining 4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 accumulator. You need only one winner to guarantee a return.
2. In the event of one winner only, your winnings are doubled.
3. For four winners out of four a bonus of 10% is added to winnings on the win part of the bet (winnings = the return for the win part of the bet minus the win stakes for that bet).
4. If a Lucky 15 contains a non runner no bonuses will apply to that bet.

For example, if the 4 selections and their odds were:

 A = 2.00 B = 3.50 C = 4.00 D = 1.50

(Fractional equivalent: Evens, 5/2, 3/1 & 1/2)

a) If all 4 selections won in a €1 Lucky 15 the winnings would be calculated as such:

4 x Singles

 Selections Odds Payout A 2.00 = 2.00 B 3.50 = 3.50 C 4.00 = 4.00 D 1.50 = 1.50

6 x Doubles

 Selections Odds Payout A + B 2.00 x 3.50 = 7.00 A + C 2.00 x 4.00 = 8.00 A + D 2.00 x 1.50 = 3.00 B + C 3.50 x 4.00 = 14.00 B + D 3.50 x 1.50 = 5.25 C + D 4.00 x 1.50 = 6.00

4 x Trebles

 Selections Odds Payout A + B + C 2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00 = 28.00 A + B + D 2.00 x 3.50 x 1.50 = 10.50 A + C + D 2.00 x 4.00 x 1.50 = 12.00 B + C + D 3.50 x 4.00 x 1.50 = 21.00

1 x Accumulator

 Selections Odds Payout A + B + C + D 2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00 x 1.50 = 42.00

Total Payout = €167.75 minus stake €15.00, leaving total winnings of €152.75.
As all 4 have won the 10% bonus on winnings applies (see Rule 9.10.3).
Therefore Bonus is 10% of €152.75 = €15.27

Total payout is therefore €167.75 + €15.27 = €183.02
The cost of the bet is €15.00, leaving a profit in this instance of €168.02.

b) Using the same odds and stake as above, if only selection C won and the other 3 selections lost, the winnings would be calculated as such:

The only winning bet would be the single on Selection C, all other single and multiple bets would be losers.

As per Rule 9.8.2 above, with only 1 winner your winnings are doubled, therefore:
€1 x €4.00 (payout) — €1 (stake) = €3.

Winnings on selection C with bonus
€3 x 2 = €6.00.

Payout on selection C with bonus
€6 (winnings) + €1 (stake) = €7.00

The cost of the bet is €15.00, leaving a loss in this instance of €8.00.

## LUCKY 31

1. A Lucky 31 consists of thirty one bets involving five selections from different events, combining 5 singles, 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four-folds and 1 accumulator. You need only one winner to guarantee a return.
2. In the event of one winner only, your winnings are doubled. (See example b in 9.8 (Lucky 15)).
3. For five winners out of five a bonus of 20% is added to winnings on the win part of the bet (winnings = the return for the win part of the bet minus the win stakes for that bet).
4. For four winners out of five a bonus of 5% is added to winnings on the win part of the bet (winnings = the return for the win part of the bet minus the win stakes for that bet). If the win return with four winners is less than the total win stake then no bonus will be applied.
5. If a Lucky 31 contains a non runner no bonuses will apply to that bet.

## LUCKY 63

1. A Lucky 63 consists of sixty three bets involving six selections from different events, combining 6 singles, 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-folds, 6 five-folds and 1 accumulator. You need only one winner to guarantee a return.
2. In the event of one winner only, your winnings are doubled. (See example b in 9.8 (Lucky 15)).
3. For six winners out of six a bonus of 25% is added to winnings on the win part of the bet (winnings = the return for the win part of the bet minus the win stakes for that bet).
4. For five winners out of six a bonus of 15% is added to winnings on the win part of the bet (winnings = the return for the win part of the bet minus the win stakes for that bet). If the win return with five winners is less than the total win stake then no bonus will be applied.
5. If a Lucky 63 contains a non runner no bonuses will apply to that bet.
