What is a Super Heinz bet? Our guide explains it all
What is a Super Heinz bet? This guide explains what it means, how it works and how you can make money from it.
What is a Super Heinz bet?
A Super Heinz bet is a type of multiple bet that consists of 120 wagers across seven different selections. The 120 bets included in a Super Heinz are:
- 21 doubles
- 35 trebles
- 35 four-fold accumulators
- 21 five-fold accumulators
- 7 six-fold accumulator
- 1 seven-fold accumulator
How many bets are in a Super Heinz bet?
A Super Heinz consists of 120 bets across seven different selections. It is named after the Heinz bet, which consists of 57 bets across six different selections. The Super Heinz features one extra selection, which makes it ‘Super’.
How does a Super Heinz bet work?
A Super Heinz first requires you to make your seven selections.
These bets are commonly made when betting on horse racing, so seven selections simply means picking seven different horses.
For example, let’s say your selections are:
Horse A to win the 12:30
Horse B to win the 13:10
Horse C to win the 13:50
Horse D to win the 14:30
Horse E to win the 15:10
Horse F to win the 16:00
Horse G to win the 16:40
A bet will then be placed on all possible doubles, trebles, four-folds, five-folds, six-folds among your selections, along with the seven-fold.
Unlike a standard accumulator bet, which requires all your selections to win, a Super Heinz adds a form of insurance in that just two of the seven need to come in for a return.
That return is unlikely to cover your initial stake, but the return can be very high should several of your horses win.
How do I place a Super Heinz?
All you need to do to place a Super Heinz is head to the Betway sportsbook and pick out your seven selections.
Once those selections are in your betslip, simply scroll down to the Super Heinz option and enter your stake.
How much does a Super Heinz bet cost?
It is important to understand that the 120 bets within a Super Heinz are treated separately, so you are essentially placing 120 bets at once.
This means that your stake will be multiplied by 120.
So, if you place a £1 win-only Super Heinz, it would cost you £120.
Can I place an each-way Super Heinz bet?
Yes, you can place an each-way Super Heinz.
It is important to note, though, that an each-way Super Heinz consists of 240 bets instead of 120. This is because you are backing each selection to win and each selection to place.
A £1 each-way Super Heinz would therefore cost £240.
To place an each-way Super Heinz, simply tick the E/W box next to each of your selections in your betslip.
How do I calculate a Super Heinz bet?
With so many different bets on several different selections, it can be hard to know exactly what returns you are in line for when placing a Super Heinz.
It is always recommended that you use an online Super Heinz calculator to work out your potential returns.
What are the other forms of a multiple bet?
A Super Heinz is a form of a multiple bet, which allows punters to group several bets into one and stand the chance of winning big.
