What is a Flag Bet?

A Flag bet takes an existing bet type and adds Up-And-Down single stakes about (SSA) pairs.

Horse Racing

The flag bet is a way of adding an any to come if cash element to existing types of bet. Specifically, a flag bet is a yankee with added Up-And-Downs bets, a super flag is a super yankee with the Up-And-Downs added, the heinz flag, super heinz flag and goliath flag all correlate to their respective prefixes with the Up-And-Down bets added. Flag bets can get very complex and trying to work out winnings by hand is almost an impossible feat. You can use these free bet calculators to work out winnings for the flag, super flag, heinz flag, super heinz flag and goliath flag. Slightly confusing is the fact that the Union Jack Bet is not a flag bet and has no if-cash bets associated.

Any one winning runner will generate a return from this bet.
