If you are looking for a guide and a clear answer to the question “What Is A Super Heinz Bet?” then you have landed on a guide explaining what the Super Heinz bet is and how it works. On this page we’ll answer the questions:

  • How much does a Super Heinz bet cost?
  • How many combinations does a Super Heinz bet have?
  • How does a Super Heinz bet work?

We’ll explain and show you how many selections the bet has and how all the 120 different combinations work for this bet.

All of the info will be explained in a step-by-step format with tables and screenshots to help you along the way. This page is also written to be easy for novice bettors to understand.

HOW MUCH DOES A £0.20p SUPER HEINZ BET COST?

Depending on your betting style and how much your budget will be, will decide how much a Super Heinz will cost you. You can do these bets for both small and large stakes. Don’t forget that you should only bet with money you can comfortably afford to lose.

Check out the table below, which shows you how much it costs for a twenty-pence win or each-way Super Heinz, as well as a range of other staking options.

SUPER HEINZ BET STAKETOTAL COST
£0.10p Win£12.00
£0.10p Each Way£24.00
£0.20p Win£24.00
£0.20p Each Way£48.00
£0.25p Win£30.00
£0.25p Each Way£60.00
£0.50p Win£60.00
£0.50p Each Way£120.00
£1.00p Win£120.00
£1.00 Each Way£240.00
£5.00p Win£600.00
£5.00 Each Way£1200.00

The Super Heinz is a very common bet containing seven selections, however, it is important to understand that this bet does not contain singles.

As you see from the table below, you have doubles, trebles, fourfolds, five-folds, six-folds and one sevenfold accumulator.

We like this as an each-way bet at the bigger meetings as it allows you to have an interest in every race at the meeting.

Understanding different horse racing betting combinations is important with any bet, but even more so with a Super Heinz.

This bet can be used by advanced punters as a win-only bet, while for novice punters, I would advise doing this as an each-way bet for fun, and using small stakes (0.20p each way, 0.25p each way or 0.50p each way)

As an example, let’s look at this from the perspective of one of the big meetings like Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood, The Cheltenham Festival or The Grand National meeting.

Many casual racegoers who go for a day out with friends, do so for the fun. They like to dress up and have a great time.

But whoever goes racing usually likes to have a flutter, and these big meetings are ideal for bets like the Heinz, Super Heinz or Goliath, where you pick out one horse in each race.

It is important to note that you will need at least two of your selections to be successful to get a return with this bet. And of course, if all seven of your horses win, then you are in for a huge payout.

HOW DOES A SUPER HEINZ BET WORK

As an example, if you are a casual punter, you would want to go for an each-way Super Heinz and focus on horses that are bigger prices. This means that it is a good idea if your selections are priced at odds of maybe 8/1 of bigger.

Firstly you will want to select your horses, so let’s look at seven mythical selections, and we’ll use Frankie Dettori’s Magnificent Seven as an example, and we’ll use a £0.20p each way stake, so your total outlay is £48.

Selection A – Wall Street 2/1
Selection B – Diffident 12/1
Selection C – Mark Of Esteem 100/30
Selection D – Decorated Hero 7/1
Selection E – Fatefully 7/4
Selection F – Loch Angel 5/4
Selection G – Fujiyama Crest 2/1

The Frankie Dettori Magnificent Seven was a historic moment in horse racing, and you can read the full story of that on the Ascot Racecourse page.

Back to our bet, our total stake is £48, so let’s work out how much you would have won if you had done this bet.

A £0.20p each way Super Heinz on those seven winners would have netted you £26,440.76 for your total stake of £48. Not a bad return, but getting seven winners is a dream many punters have when they place a Super Heinz, but one that is near impossible to achieve.

In mid-December 2022 Frankie Detorri announced he will retire from race riding at the end of 2023. Could he do the impossible once again, more than a quarter of a century later at Royal Ascot in June 2023?
