Calculator Lucky 15
The Lucky 15 bet is a popular choice for many horse racing fans as it offers the chance to win big while also spreading the risk across multiple runners.
Lucky 15 bets are made up of fifteen separate bets. It includes four single bets, six double bets, four treble bets and a fourfold accumulator bet. Essentially, you are backing four horses to win in fifteen different ways.
If one selection wins then you will get a payout. But if all four selections win, then it’s common to get a winners bonus from the bookmaker.
Bettors can also select multiple bet types such as: each way bets, rule 4 and dead heat bets for their stake.
However, calculating the potential winnings can be complicated, which is why many people use a Lucky 15 Bet Calculator.
How To Calculate A Lucky 15
If you feel brave and want to work out Lucky 15 bets yourself, just follow the steps below:
Step 1 – For each of the winning selections add 2 to the odds (for example 4-1 = 6 points, or 10-1 = 12 points)
Step 2 – For each of the winners, multiply the points (using the example above: 6×12 = 72 points)
Step 3 – Subtract 1 from the total points (e.g. 72 – 1 = 71 points)
Step 4 – Multiply your unit stake i.e. 50p (not the total stake i.e. £7.50) by the number calculated in step 3 (e.g. 71 x 0.50 = £35.50)
Step 5 – Your winnings would be £35.50 from a stake of £7.50 meaning your profit was £28.00
Bonus step – If the bookmaker offers a winners bonus (say 10%) and all your selections win, then you multiply your winnings by 1.1 (100+10/100) to get your total return (e.g. £35.50 x 1.1 = £39.05)
How To Use Lucky 15 Calculator
Thankfully, a Lucky 15 Bet Calculator allows you to input the odds of each horse and see how much you could win if any of your selections come in.
Using a free bet calculator saves you the headache of working it out yourself. It gets even more complicated when you factor in dead heats, non runners, four fold accumulator bet and “one winner consolation” bookmaker bonuses (i.e. double odds, treble odds, quadruple odds).
At least with a Lucky 15 calculator, as you enter the bet details (your stake, your four different selections, enter bookmaker bonuses etc) the betting total stake and winning profit gets updated automatically.
To calculate our potential winnings from the initial stake, simply enter the following items:
- Enter your unit stake in the box i.e. £1
- Tick the box for each way, Rule 4 or Dead heat if you want these to apply
- Type in the odds for each of the four selections (Bet 1 – 4) then select win, lose, dead heat or NR
- Click the “calculate” button to see the total stake and potential lucky 15 returns
