The different types of system bet you can found
Get your head around the Goliath, Lucky 15, Yankee, Canadian and more!
Feeling more adventurous than a simple single but fed up of the same old tired accumulator? There is another way.
For those unfamiliar with the term, a system bet is essentially just a combination of picks. So, you might ask, how is it different to an accumulator? Well, put simply, a system bet can still win even if all your picks don’t come in – unlike an accumulator, where it’s one wrong move and you’re out.
We’ve compiled a wide selection of ready-made system bet types for you to choose from, so let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular options.
A perfect starting point for this style of play, this is your bread and butter system bet. The Yankee totals eleven bets on four picks across different events and the result gives you 6 Doubles, 4 Trebles and 1 Fourfold Accumulator. A €1 Yankee bet costs €11 and you’ll see a return providing two or more selections are successful.
The Lucky 15 bet is similar to a Yankee, with the only difference being that it also includes singles. It’s a total of fifteen bets on four sections across different events, which work out at 4 Singles, 6 Doubles, 4 Trebles and a Fourfold Accumulator. You only need one or more selections to come in to see a return and a €1 Lucky 15 bet will cost you €15.
What is a Goliath? The clue is in the name. This monster is a total of 247 bets across eight sections, creating 28 Doubles, 70 Fourfold Accumulators, 56 Fivefold Accumulators, 28 Sixfold Accumulators, 8 Sevenfold Accumulators and 1 Eightfold Accumulator. If you think you can handle it, two or more successful selections on a Goliath bet are enough to see a return, so when you’re feeling your best David moment coming on, a €1 Goliath will cost you €247.
The slightly more subtly referenced Heinz bet (again, the clue is in the name) is for those looking for a more refined selection than the previous option. The Heinz is, of course, 57 bets on six selections, creating 15 Doubles, 20 Trebles, 15 Fourfold Accumulators, 6 Fivefold Accumulators and 1 Sixfold Accumulator. Two or more selections must come in to see a return on this bet, and remember, a €1 Heinz will cost you rather more than a bottle of sauce, at €57.
The Canadian or Super Yankee is a total of 26 bets on five selections which consists of 10 Doubles, 10 Trebles, 5 Fourfold Accumulators and a Fivefold Accumulator. Like a Yankee, two or more selections on the Canadian must come in to see a return. I’m sure you’re getting the hang of it by now, a €1 Canadian will cost you €26.
