A Super Heinz is a combination bet that involves seven selections and a total of 120 bets, as follows:
1 Seven folds
There are no singles with a Super Heinz. For any returns to be had, at least two of the selections are required to be winners.
The name “Super Heinz” comes from the fact that this seven-selection bet is one step up from the six-selection bet that is known as a “Heinz”. This is because the Heinz bet consists of 57 selections, just as the food-manufacturers Heinz are known for their 57 varieties.

Is Super Heinz Right For Me?
Whilst the Super Heinz does look attractive, and the returns can be astronomical if all seven of your selections romp home, a balance has to be made between the cost of the bet, and the chances of decent returns. The fact that there are no singles makes the bet less appealing as if only two or three of your selections come in as winners, then your winnings are poor when compared to the outlay of the bet.
The second negative factor about the Super Heinz Is that you are wagering a lot of money on five-folds, six-folds and an accumulator, and the odds of these bets returning any winnings are poor. To balance this, if you do land a large selection of winners, you could be taking home an unbelievable amount of money. Even a normal seven selection accumulator in which all your selections are priced at 2/1 will give you odds of 2,187/1. With the Super Heinz and the addition of the other 119 bets, these odds rise to 16,362-1.
The Other positive factor to consider here with a Super Heinz is that you will still walk away with a likely profit if 5 or 6 selections win. If you just place the straight seven-fold accumulator, all you are left with is a bitter taste in your mouth.
The Super Heinz is something of a lottery-style bet. The chances of a punter picking seven selections and them all coming home is pretty slim, but the winnings if that does happen are pretty astronomical.
Bookmakers do like to push bets like the Super Heinz (and the Super Yankee and Heinz) as the winnings potential are attractive, but far less likely to come in. Bookies like people to ignore singles, as the fewer winners that are required for a bet to come up trumps, the more likely it is to happen. With the Super Heinz, the outlay is pretty high at 120 separate bets. It’s up to the individual punter to decide if the outlay is worth it in comparison to the odds of achieving what could be a substantial jackpot.
