What is a Lucky 15 bet?
A lucky 15 is a four-selections horse racing bet (or whatever sport) that contains a total of fifteen outcomes merely by selecting four horses to win. These outcomes include 4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and a four-fold accumulator.
Any winning bets are calculated from the following;
- 4 outright singles on horses 1, 2, 3 and 4
- 6 doubles on horses 1&2, 1&3, 1&4, 2&3, 2&4, 3&4
- 4 trebles on horses 1,2&3, 1,2&4, 1,3&4, 2,3&4
- 1 four-fold (accumulator) on horses 1,2,3&4
Total 15 bets or 15 x your unit stake.
Because of the accumulative nature of the Lucky 15 bet, get 3 or 4 selections right, and your returns start to look very tasty (which is what makes the Lucky 15 such fun).

How much does a Lucky 15 cost?
Since a Lucky 15 is made up of 15 bets (four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a 4-fold), it costs 15 times your unit stake. For example, a £1 win Lucky 15 costs £1 x 15, which equals £15.
A £5 Lucky 15 costs £5 x 15= £75, a £10 Lucky 15 costs £150, and so on..
Each Way Lucky 15 bets
Horse racing fans also like the option to bet each-way, particularly if they are placing their bets on the big festival meetings like Royal Ascot, Cheltenham Festival or Aintree Festival. Of course, you can place an EW Lucky 15 bet as it is essentially the same, but with double the bets.
An Each Way Lucky 15 includes a total of 30 bets and the total stake for an each-way Lucky 15 is double that of a standard Lucky 15.
A £1 each way Lucky 15 costs £30, a £5 each way Lucky 15 costs £150, etc..
The place part of the bet is calculated in accordance with usual rules. One-fifth of the odds for first, second and third in non-handicap races of 8 runners or more. You will be paid out one-quarter of the odds in handicaps of eight or more runners. Bookies pay the fourth place in handicaps of sixteen or more runners.

Which Is The Best Bookmaker For Lucky 15 Bets?
Betfred offer the best bonuses for Lucky 15 bets and for many punters that is the most important factor.
Odds are very important as well. So first of all shop around for the highest odds and you will see how they can dramatically increase the potential payout.
Bet365 and William Hill usually have excellent odds across all sports according to our researches, so you may generally find that you can earn more money by playing your Lucky 15 bets with them.
What happens if a selections is voided?
Because there are so many different bets involved in a Lucky 15, there’s always a chance that one of your selections may not run (or play). This is known as a “void line”. If a void line occurs in your Lucky 15, the bookmaker will usually issue a full refund and you’ll have to reconstruct your bet.
Should one or more of your selections be void in your Lucky 31 or Lucky 63 bets, then there are two possibilities depending on the bookmaker.
Some bookies will void the entire bet and refund all of your lines. More commonly your bet will be partly refunded and you will drop down to the next tier.
Eg. if you have placed a Lucky 31 with 5 selections and one is void you will tier down to a Lucky 15 with 16/31 of your betting line stakes refunded.
What is the difference between a Lucky 15 and a Yankee bet?
The difference between a Lucky 15 and a Yankee is that a Yankee bet covers six doubles, four trebles and one four-fold, but doesn’t include the four single bets that a Lucky 15 would have. Hence, the Yankee consists of 11 bets instead of 15. We recommend to play a Yankee if the four selections have relatively short odds because the potential profits made through the single bets may not be substantial.
Eg. If you have a £1 Lucky 15 on 4 selections that are all 4/5 and also have a £1 yankee on those same 4 selections, you will actually lose more by placing a Lucky 15, even though that Lucky 15 gives you a payout:
- £1 Yankee - Cost £11 - Return £0 - Total loss £11
- £1 Lucky 15 - Cost £15 - Return £1.80 - Total loss £13.20
Why Lucky 15s are so popular?
Most punters choose to bet on a specific horse racing market for the opportunity to potentially scoop significantly higher returns and the same goes with the Lucky 15 market.
Betting on Lucky 15s also provide the one method of betting that entertains a higher likelihood of winning something, even if you can’t scoop all of your winnings.
They eliminate that gut wrenching feeling of being one leg away from landing a full-house. Two winners or more will provide a healthy return.
History of Lucky Bets
The Lucky 15, as well as the Lucky 31 and Lucky 63, were created by Mr Betfred himself – Fred Done. Always looking for ways to enhance his customers' betting experience, Fred thought up an idea that would allow punters to cover all possible betting lines from a number of selections of their choice.
Originally designed by Betfred to improve the horse racing experience for players, these bets have evolved over time, and can now be placed on a variety of markets including football, rugby, snooker, boxing, cricket and so much more.
Betfred also accepts Lucky bets in their Virtual Sports section, where some of the most popular sports in the world are available throughout the day.
