Frequently Asked Questions About Lucky 15s

Here are the most popular questions we get asked:

What is a Lucky 15?

So, exactly what is a Lucky 15 bet? It is a popular type of horse racing bet – although it can be used on all forms of sports betting.

The term stems from the fact that the bet encompasses 15 separate bets, that come together to make up one main bet called a Lucky 15.

Unlike an accumulator bet not all of your selections have to win or be placed, this means by placing a Lucky 15, you automatically increase your chances of getting a return. It is also a fun bet and a firm favourite with punters all over the world.

To place this type of bet, you’ll need to choose 4 selections. From this the 15 bets are created, they are broken down as follows:

  • 4 x singles
  • 6 x doubles
  • 4 x trebles
  • 1 x fourfold accumulator

The more horses or selections that win, the bigger the returns.

How Can I Work Out My Winnings on a Lucky 15?

It can be tricky with so many different elements to work out (your total return will depend on your total stake of course) but fear not we have done the hard work so just use our Lucky 15 bet calculator today. All you need to do is enter your stake, results and places and we will do all the work.

Can I Work Out a Lucky 15 Manually?

Yes, if you want to work out a Lucky 15 bet manually here is a formula:

  1. Add 2 points onto any winning odds selection (i.e. 5-1 =7, 12-1=14)
  2. Multiply the points together for how many winners you have (i.e. 3-1 winner and 4-1 winner = 5×6=30 points)
  3. Minus one point off the total points
  4. Multiply these points by your stake
  5. The total winnings are now worked out for your returns

For example, if you placed a correct score Lucky 15 bet with a unit stake of £1 (total stake £15) and all your selections were priced at 6/1, here’s what you could expect…

  • 1 winner and 3 losers would return £7, giving you a loss of £8
  • 2 winners and 2 losers would return £63, giving you a profit of £48
  • 3 winners and 1 loser would return £511, giving you a profit of £496
  • 4 winners and 0 losers would return £4095, giving you a profit of £4080

As you can see, there is potential to get great returns from a 15 bet, while still having that little reassurance that you could still get a decent return even if some of your selections lose. So, instead of placing an accumulator, why not try a Lucky 15 for your next bet?

As you can see, the bets above add up to 15, therefore your unit stake will be multiplied by 15 to make up the total stake for your bet. For example, a 10p Lucky 15 bet will cost you a total of £1.50.

If you are feeling lucky – maybe try this bet today? It is one of the most popular with the teams here.

Can You Do An Each-Way Lucky 15 Bet?

Yes, it’s also possible to do an each-way Lucky 15 bet, but as your stake is doubled with each-way bets, the same applies to a Lucky 15. Therefore a 10p each-way Lucky 15 bet will be £3, whilst a 10p win one would be £1.50.

What happens if you have a non-runner in a Lucky 15?
