Lucky 15 bet explained
As you can see all the options are covered and a Lucky 15 bet is often referred to as a full coverage bet. The more that go on to win the greater the returns. With a Lucky 15 bet it is possible to win back less than your stake. If all four win the overall win will be more than if you just place a straight accumulator. Lucky 15s are a great way for reducing the risk of a bet and getting a decent return if you get close to all four results.
Most bookmakers offer the Lucky 15 facility and can be found within your multiple options within your betting slip when 4 selections are placed there. William Hill offer Lucky 15’s across all of their betting markets and you can also take advantage of their new customer offer if you are not already registered.
With this multiple covering 15 different bets, you need to be careful not to overspend on your stake when placing them. Remember that you are entering the amount for each bet rather than entering your total stake. A £1 bet on each line will result in a £15 total stake or outlay.
