# Lucky31 Bet Calculator

A Lucky31 bet is a bet which contains five selections and is made up of 31 different bets. Quite large returns are possible from a small stake for this kind of bet. Lucky31 bets can be placed on any sport but are most popular with horse racing.

## What is a Lucky31 Bet Calculator?

A Lucky31 bet calculator calculates the odds and potential returns for each leg of a Lucky31 bet. The 31 legs of a Lucky31 bet are five single bets, ten double bets, ten trebles five fourfolds and one fivefold accumulator. The bet is the same as a Canadian but also has the five singles as additional bets. It is possible to place an each way Lucky31. Your total stake is split evenly between a win bet and a place bet. Each way terms on races or events can differ, but they are generally displayed next to the odds for an event.

## How to Calculate your Lucky31 Bet

Calculating the odds for a Lucky31 is not difficult but it can be time consuming. You must calculate the odds for 31 different bets and add them together. With four selections, A, B, C, D and E, the bets are calculated by multiplying the odds of each selection together in the following way:

• Five singles: simply the odds of selections A, B, C, D and E
• Ten doubles: A x B, A x C, A x D, A x E, B x C, B x D, B x E, C x D, C x E, D x E
• Ten trebles: A x B x C, A x B x D, A x B x E, A x C x D, A x C x E, A x D x E, B x C x D, B x C x E, B x D x E, C x D x E
• Five fourfolds: A x B x C x D, A x B x C x E, A x C x D x E, A x B x D x E, B x C x D x E

### Fractions vs Decimals

Both fractional and decimal odds work fine for calculating the odds of a Lucky31 bet. Multiplying the odds of each selection within a leg together is easier if you use digital odds when calculating manually, but a Lucky31 betting calculator has no preference.

### Lucky31 Bet Example

If you back four horses in a Lucky31 which all have odds of evens (1/1 or 2.00), and you stake £31 in total (a £1 Lucky31), you can expect the following returns based on the number of correct selections:

• One winner: 1 x single = £2
• Two winners: 2 x singles (2 x £2 = £4), 1 x double (£4) = £8
• Three winners: 3 x singles (3 x £2 = £6), 3 x doubles (3 x £4 = £12), 1 x treble (£8) = £26
• Four winners: 4 x singles (4 x £2 = £8), 6 x doubles (6 x £4 = £24), 4 x trebles (4 x £8 = £32), 1 x fourfold (£16) = £80
• Five winners: 5 x singles (5 x £2 = £10), 10 x doubles (10 x £4 = £40), 10 x trebles (10 x £8 = £80), 5 x fourfolds (5 x \$16 = £80), 1 x fivefold (£32) = £242

## When to Use a Lucky31 Bet Calculator

A Lucky31 betting calculator should be used to calculate all 31 legs of a Lucky31 bet. As shown above, you can win money even if only one of your five selections are correct. Even backing selections with low odds and staking a small amount can yield potentially massive profits.
