What is a Goliath Bet?

The goliath is an 8 selection wager consisting of 247 bets: 28 doubles, 56 trebles, 70 four-folds, 56 five-folds, 28 six-folds, 8 seven-folds and an eight-fold accumulator.

David and Goliath

Named after the considerable number of bets that 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 in terms of size, the goliath can generate huge winnings if you have enough stake to fund all bets. All selections have 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 help understand how one or two losing runners affects returns.

When 2 selections win, a return is guaranteed.
