What is Lucky 15 betting and how does it work?

March 10, 2023

Lucky 15 includes 15 equal bets on a selection of four events. Let’s see how it works and the pros and cons.

Lucky 15 means 15 bets with an equal value selected in four different events. It includes four singles, six doubles, four tricasts, and one quadruple. It means that if only one of your choices comes up, you will get some reward; if there are more choices, your bonus will increase.

Why should I bet on Lucky 15?

Lucky 15 is a solid bet when you have four selections in four events that you think will win but want to put some insurance on your Bet.

Multiple combinations (six doubles, four triples, and a fourfold Acca) mean you can win big in every possible way, while singles mean you should at least get some back, even if they don’t all win.

Are there any downsides to the Lucky 15?

The main disadvantage of Lucky 15 bets is that all 15 bets have the same stake (unit bet). It means you can’t adjust your Bets based on your favorite picks.

You can add all 15 bets individually to your bet slip to fix this. It allows you to control the different bets for each single and multiple Bet, investing more money in your favorite selections and those that you might consider more promising less money.

How to Calculate Lucky 15 Betting Bonuses

The lucky 15 Betting Calculator is the easiest way to determine how much you will win. If you want to figure it out yourself, here’s how:

  • If you have decimal odds, convert them to decimals. To do this, divide the highest number in the score by the lowest number and add one to the answer. (For example, 2/1 becomes 3.0, and 9/4 becomes 3.25.)
  • Single bet: decimal odds x principal = return (including principal)
  • Doubles: pick 1 odds x pick 2 odds = return (including principal)
  • Triple Odds: Pick 1 odds x Pick 2 odds x Pick 3 odds = Return (including stake)
  • Quadruple: choose 1 odds x choose 2 odds x choose 3 odds x choose 4 odds = return (including principal)

How does One Way Lucky 15 work?

Quite simply, a One Way Lucky 15 is where all bets are one-way bets, so there are 30 bets. The total Bet on a one-way Lucky 15 is twice that of a regular Lucky 15.

Choosing Lucky 15 One Way is because you will reward every ranked horse, not just the winner.

Most bookmakers pay about 1/5 of the winning odds for the place portion of a one-way bet on horse racing. It means a one-way bet of £1 on a horse at 5/1 (costs £2). If the horse bets, the odds are equal, meaning your return will be your £1 profit plus £1 stake Bet returned on winning positions.

Therefore, choose a one-way position payout that will exceed your original Bet.

What’s the difference between Lucky 15 and Yankee?

The main difference between Lucky 15 and Yankee is that Lucky 15 consists of four singles, six doubles, four triples, and one quadruple.

It offers “full coverage” compared to the Yankee. However, a £1 Yankee costs just £11, while a £1 Lucky 15 costs £15.

If you have four options with lower odds, the Yankees are a better bet than the Lucky 15, as the payoff on a single bet may not be huge.
