Calculating a Heinz bet payout
To payout of this bet depends on how many selections are correct and which ones they are. For instance:
Only bet No. 1 (Bournemouth to win vs Newcastle) is correct.
- No return as there are no single bets
- £57.00 overall loss
Bet No. 1 and 2 are correct, the others lose.
You win 1 double bet (1x2) =
- 2.05 x 2.90 = 5.95
- £5.95 return. £51.05 overall loss
Bet No. 1, 2 and 3 are correct, the others lose.
You win 3 doubles bet (1x2, 1x3, 2x3) and 1 treble (1x2xs3)
- 1x2 = 2.05 x 2.90 = 5.95
- 1x3 = 2.05 x 1.55 = 3.18
- 2x3 = 2.90 x 1.55 = 4.50
- 1x2x3 = 2.05 x 2.90 x 1.55 = 9.22
- £22.83 return. £34.17 overall loss
Even with three winning bets, our overall loss is still more than 50% of the stake. This is because the odds on some of our bets are rather low. Assuming all six bet selections were correct, so you had the perfect Heinz, the return would be:
- 15 doubles: returns £71.32
- 20 trebles: returns £196.63
- 15 four-folds: returns £295.69
- 6 five-folds: returns £230.66
- 1 six-fold accumulator: returns £73.13
- £867.43 return. £810.43 overall profit
Why place a Heinz bet?
As you can see from our example, the payout from a Heinz bet can be huge. Even with six selections at relatively low-odds, around 1.20, you’re still looking at a payout over £100 if they are all correct. Add in one outside bet at 3.2 and your payout jumps to over £200.
One of the trade-offs with a Heinz bet is that there are no single bets, so as we mentioned, at least two of your selections have to win before you see any return. To mitigate that, some players place a Lucky 63 bet instead, which is the same as a Heinz except your six selections are also backed as single bets.
