Named after the huge number of bets that together make this wager, the goliath is one of the largest bets available and is best left to experienced punters. Only trumped by the goliath flag is terms of size this multiple bet has the potential to generate huge winnings if you have enough stake to fund all bets. All selections have an equal weight on the return so it doesn't matter which order they are added to the betting slip.

Working out winnings for this kind of bet would be impossible by hand so use the goliath bet calculator to save time. The calculator can also be helpful in understanding how one or two losing runners affects returns.

When 2 selections win, a return is guaranteed.
