Super Heinz Bet & Other Bet Types You May Not Have Used

bet types

Many of us have the occasional win or each-way bet on football, horse racing or other sports throughout the week. We may even try our luck with an accumulator consisting of several selections. However, there are several lesser-known bet types, such as a Super Heinz bet and Alphabet bets, that you may not have used before that can offer something different and may appeal to you depending on the level of risk/reward you are looking for.

In this article, we’ll be taking a look at five bet types that you may not have used or come across, and discuss how they work, their potential advantages & disadvantages, and how they differ from more common bet options.

Super Heinz Bet

We’ll start of with the Super Heinz bet is a popular choice for with punters looking to spread their risk but still have the potential to land a big payout. A Super Heinz bet consists of 7 selections and includes a whopping 120 bets in total.

Here’s how a Super Heinz bet is broken down:

Type of BetNumber of Bets

A minimum two selections must win in a Super Heinz bet for you to receive a return.

Goliath Bet

If you’d like to take it one step further than a Super Heinz then you may wish to consider a Goliath bet.

It involves making 8 different selections which when combined into a Goliath, produces 247 different bets. The stakes are higher with a Goliath bet as a minimum of eight selections are required but just two are needed to win for you to see a return from your bet.

Type of BetNumber of Bets

Calculating potential returns for a Goliath bet can be complex due to the numerous combinations involved. However, many online bookmakers offer bet calculators that can help you determine your potential winnings based on your chosen selections, their odds and the stake amount.

Super Yankee Bet / Canadian

A Super Yankee bet, also known as a Canadian bet, is another bet type that often flies under the radar of many punters. It offers a reasonable risk/reward ratio, making it an appealing option for many bettors. A Super Yankee bet type involves placing 26 bets on 5 different selections, combining doubles, trebles, and an accumulator.

When compared to similar bet types, such as a Goliath bet, a Super Yankee bet has a more manageable number of bets. With 26 bets instead of 247, it is easier to track the progress of each selection along with the potential payouts.

Type of BetNumber of Bets

Patent Bet

A Patent bet is a straightforward bet type that is similar to a Trixie. It consists of 7 bet combinations from 3 different selections.

Unlike a Trixie bet which consists of 3 doubles, and 1 treble, a Patent bet also incorporates 3 singles. By including all 3 singles in your bet, you’ll see a return if just 1 selection wins compared to needing 2 winning selections with a Trixie.

Patent bets are considered one of the lower-risk bet types and used most often on football and horse racing multiples.

Type of BetNumber of Bets

Alphabet Bet

An Alphabet bet is probably the most less common of all bet types listed on this page. It is a combination of multiple bets, named after its 26 separate bets corresponding to each letter of the alphabet.

Although typically used on horse racing and greyhound bets, Alphabet bets can be used with selections from any sports.

Here’s how an Alphabet bet works:

Six selections are made for the bet.

  • Selections 1, 2, and 3 form a patent.
  • Selections 4, 5, and 6 form a second patent.
  • Selections 2, 3, 4, and 5 form a Yankee
  • Selections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 form a sixfold accumulator

Just one correct selection in an Alphabet bet guarantees a return.
