A Super Heinz bet is the king of multiple wagers in horse racing betting. It consists of 120 wagers across seven different selections.
The breakdown of a Super Heinz bet is as follows – 21 doubles, 35 trebles, 35 four-fold accumulators, 21 five-fold accumulators, seven six-fold accumulators and one seven-fold accumulator. It goes one step beyond a Heinz bet, which includes 57 bets across six separate selections. That’s what makes this wager super.
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 A Super Heinz Bet Works
Let’s take a look at how the Super Heinz bet would work in a horse racing wager. It starts by picking out seven different selections of horse to win seven races. Since there are no single wagers involved in a Super Heinz bet, the next step would be to decipher all of the necessary wagers to be played. That would include the 21 doubles combinations, 35 treble bets, 35 four-fold accumulators, 21 five-fold accumulators, seven six-fold accumulators, and the one seven-fold accumulator.
Finally, once all the selections are made, the final step in the process of placing a Super Heinz bet is to determine a stake. Remember, there are 120 wagers involved with the Super Heinz bet, so the stake will be multiplied by 120. Thus, a £2 Super Heinz bet will cost a total of £240.
Super Heinz Insurance
Unlike a standard acca play, with the Super Heinz bet sportsbooks will often provide accumulator insurance, since there are so many wagers being played at once. It will pay out a partial return if a predetermined number of plays on the accumulators come in as winners. This stipend is unlikely to cover the outlay of the stake on the Super Heinz wager, but it’s better than losing it all.
Each Way Super Heinz Bet
It is possible to play a Super Heinz bet each way. That would be enabling the wager to come in as a winner if each horse played either won or placed in their respective races.
However, it must also be remembered that by playing the Super Heinz bet each way, the number of wagers played is doubled. That also will mean that the cost of the play will increase twofold.
That same £2 Super Heinz bet that will carry a total of £240 as a straight play would require a stake of £480 to be wagered as a each way punt.
Super Heinz Bet Calculator
Most reputable sports betting sites will provide players with a Super Heinz bet calculator. By entering the horses involved in the wager, the odds on each horse and the stake, the bettor can determine exactly what their earnings will be from their Super Heinz play.
