Lucky 63 Betting Term Meaning
The betting term ‘Lucky 63’ refers to the name of a combination bet made up of sixty-three individual bets.
This is the largest of the ‘Lucky’ series of combination (also known as ‘system’) bets. The Lucky 15 uses four selections; the Lucky 31 has five selections and this one, the Lucky 63, has six separate selections. The individual bets are 6 singles, 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-folds, 6 five-folds and 1 six-fold accumulator.
From this bet, you only need one correct selection to see a return from the bookmaker, although (depending on the odds) you usually require three or four winners to make a profit. As with most combination bets, horse racing tends to be the favoured event for Lucky 63 wagers, but it’s also growing in popularity with football punters as well now. That said, the Lucky 63 can be used on any sport, or mixture of sports.
How do Lucky 63 Bets Work?
It is a very simple bet to understand once you see it in action, so let’s run through how it works and then provide a sample of payouts. It’s important to know that because there are 63 separate bets, your individual stake per bet is multiplied by 63. So, a £1 per bet stake equals a total stake cost of £63.

Lucky 63 Payouts
You only need to claim one winner to get a return. This is an example of the payouts you would get based on the odds given above. Our betting unit will be £1.00 per wager (total £63). This is flexible, you can bet £0.10, £0.25 or higher than £1.00 if you have the bankroll.
The winning bet is one single (1):
- 1 = 2.0 = £2.00
£63 total stake - £2.00 win = £61.00 loss
The winning bets are two singles (1, 2) and one double (1x2):
- 1 = 2.0 = £2.00
- 2 = 4.0 = £4.0
- 1x2 = 2.0 x 4.0 = £8.0
£63 total stake - £14.00 win = £49.00 loss
The winning bets are three singles (1, 2, 3) and three doubles (1x2, 1x3, 2x3) and one treble (1x2x3):
- 1 = 2.0 = £2.00
- 2 = 4.0 = £4.00
- 3= 7.0 = £7.00
- 1x2 = 2.0 x 4.0 = £8.00
- 1x3 = 2.0 x 7.0 = £14.00
- 2x3 = 4.0 x 7.0 = £28.00
- 1x2x3 = 2.0 x 4.0 x 7.0 = £56.00
£119.00 return - £63 total stake = £56.00 profit
Due to landing a 6/1 (7.0) as the third winner, we shot into profit. Let’s see the remainder of the payouts:
- Four winners ( Bet Nos: 1, 2, 3, 4) = £359 return. £296 profit
- Five winners (Bet Nos: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) = £1,439 return. £1,367 profit
- All six winners (Lucky 63) = £25,919 return. £25,856 profit
Why Place Lucky 63 Bets?
The returns on a Lucky 63 can be huge if one or two selections are a little further out in the betting. Our example included a 6/1 shot and a 16/1 chance. The other picks were low odds and all favourites or second favourites.
This is why many punters like Lucky 63 bets. You can return a profit with 3 or 4 short odds selections winning, and if you get “lucky” with more winners, the payouts are very rewarding indeed.
