What is a Lucky 15?
A Lucky 15 is a bet made up of 15 different bets, covering every possible combination from four selections. Sounds complicated, but it’s easier to understand once you have a breakdown. Here’s how a Lucky 15 on Paddy Power looks:
- 1 fourfold accumulator
- 4 trebles
- 6 doubles
- 4 singles
So to win the bet, you need to get one of each of these types of bets correct, you only have one shot at the fourfold but the other bets bring you more cover with more bets to cover the outcome. What’s more, a Lucky 15 uses your stake 15 times. If you were to place £1 on a Lucky 15, you would be staking £15 in total across the different bets.
The addition of 4 single gets is what separates a Lucky 15 from a Yankee bet (made up of 11 bets). The Lucky 15 is like an accumulator bet on steroids, and the payouts can be extremely handsome.
You can place a Lucky 15 on many types of sports, including horse racing, greyhounds, football and many more. We’re going to take you through how to place a lucky 15 bet on Paddy Power. In this example, we are going to place the bet on football.
First, you need to navigate over to the sport you wish to bet on, in this case, we are going to select ‘Football’.
Then you will need to find the football matches you wish to wager on, whether that be Champions League, La Liga or Premier League, we will navigate over to the Premier League games in this example.
Then you need to select four different bets across the football matches.
Once you have selected the four different bets, the Lucky 15 option will appear in the bet slip.
You can then enter the amount you wish to wager. Any amount you bet will be multiplied by 15, so a wager of £10 will be £150.
You can also see the potential returns should your bet be successful.
Then, all you need to do is hit the ‘Place Bet’ button.
What is a Lucky 15 each way bet?
The standard Lucky 15 bet can be used across any sport, while a Lucky 15 each way bet is more suitable for horse racing. This bet is very similar to the standard Lucky 15 bet but adds 15 bets to create each-way wager. The bet is made up of 30 bets in total, so a stake of £10 will add up to £300.
Here’s how to do a Lucky 15 each way bet
First, you will need to head over to the ‘Horse Racing’ events.
Then you will need to pick out a horse in four different horse races. Remember, each way is a horse you think will be in the top three finishers.
Once you have selected your four horses, you will need to tick the each way box on each horse in the bet slip.
At the bottom of the bet slip you will see the ‘Lucky 15’ option.
You will then need to tick the ‘each way’ box in this field and then enter the amount you wish to wager.
Remember, the amount wagered is multiplied by 30, so a £10 bet, will become a £300 bet.
Then all that’s left to do is hit the ‘Place Bet’ button.
