What is a Patent Bet?

The patent is a 3 selection wager consisting of 7 bets: 3 singles, 3 doubles and a treble.

A horse race that's in progress

This is a full cover bet that can be thought of as a trixie with 3 single bets added to each selection. Each choice appears in 1 single, 2 doubles and a treble. One losing selection can significantly impact the returns of this bet. Try out different outcomes and odds on the patent bet calculator to get a feel for how small changes can influence returns. On the bet slip, the stake can be stated as either per bet or total amount; if per bet is chosen, the total stake will be 7 times the value entered.

Any single winning choice from the patent is enough to generate a return - this is considered one of the main advantages over a trixie.

Patent Composition

The patent is composed of the following parts:
