What is a Super Heinz Bet?

The super heinz is a 7 selection wager consisting of 120 bets: 21 doubles, 35 trebles, 35 four-folds, 21 five-folds, 7 six-folds and a seven-fold accumulator.

Betting Odds Board

This is a full cover wager with many bets that should only be considered in rare circumstances and by experienced punters. 120 bets can be an expensive proposition, but the winnings can be equally as large. Each of the 7 selections appears in the same number of bets giving equal influence to all.

Calculating winnings for such a large bet would be difficult if a super heinz bet calculator were not available. The tool can also help understand how different outcomes and odds affect returns.

At least 2 selections must win for this wager to generate a return.

How It Works

If we assume that you fancy a day at the races and have taken a shine to seven horses across the schedule at Goodwood, these magnificent seven are coincidentally priced at the same odds of 4/1 (5.00)

This means we will be betting on all seven horses across the 120 different betting permutations. If we have set aside a stake of £1 per bet, our overall outlay would be £120 – not a small amount of money, but one that could return plenty of winnings.

Should no horses manage to enter the winner’s enclosure, you would draw a blank, and the same would be said for a single horse finishing first, as none of the 120 bets in the Super Heinz include singles.

Winners And Losers

Using our example bet, this is how our returns would play out across varying amounts of winners on the bet slip.

Two Winners

Two 4/1 winners at £5 per win. The double win is all you collect, and the total prize is £25 resulting in a £95 loss.

Three Winners

Should you see three horses declared a winner, this is where the Super Heinz starts to work for you rather than against you.

Three 4/1 winners at £5 per win. Add the three doubles together, and the prize money is £75. Add a treble win at £125; your total winnings are £200 with an overall £80 profit.

Not a lot of profit, but profit all the same, and should your luck continue with a fourth winner and beyond, then this is where things start to get interesting.

Four Winners

Four 4/1 winners at £5 per win. Add the six doubles together, and the prize money is £150. Add four treble wins at a total of £500 and a winning four-fold at £625. The total winnings are £1,275, and a £1,155 profit.

Five Winners

Five 4/1 winners at £5 per win. Add the ten doubles together, and the prize money is £250. Add ten more treble wins to add £1250 to the pot, five four-fold wins at £625 and a five-fold win at also £625. This brings in a total of £7,750 and a £7,630 profit.

Six Winners

Six 4/1 winners at £5 per win. Add the 15 doubles together, and the prize money is £375. Add 20 treble wins at a total of £2,500, another 15 four-folds at £9,375, six five-folds at £18,750 and one six-fold at £15,625. This brings in a total of £46,625 and £46,505 profit.

Seven Winners

Seven 4/1 winners at £5 per win. Add all 21 doubles together, and the prize money is £525. Add all 35 trebles and an extra £4,375, plus another 35 four-folds at £21,875, another 21 five-folds at £65,625, seven more six-folds at £109,375 and one accumulator win at £78,125. A massive £279,900 is your return and profit of £279,780.

Like all combination bets, there are several caveats to consider. First, in the example above, the overall stake money is rather high. It could be pitched as high risk for higher reward, but it could be an expensive pitfall if all goes south and you fail to get the required number of wins.

However, there is a way to absorb such heavy outlay, and that is to make the stake far smaller. In this instance, instead of placing a stake of £1, you could opt for 10p. Yes, the winnings would decrease, but less financial exposure would exist.

Of course, the above example is where all seven horses are priced at the same odds of 4/1. It would be doubtful that a Super Heinz would be placed with this exact example, and therefore, you also need to account for variation in odds.

Should you have different odds to work with and the maths become a bit more complicated, you can always use our Super Heinz calculator to work out just what winnings you can dream of spending.

Reasons for making a Super Heinz Bet

Now that we have explained a Super Heinz bet, here are three reasons why you would place one:

  • Higher Potential Payouts: With 120 different bets covering various combinations of selections, even a small initial stake can lead to significant returns if a majority of the selections turn out to be correct.
  • Diversification and Variety: Placing a Super Heinz bet allows bettors to diversify their wagers across various selections and events. Unlike an accumulator, the diversified approach can also mitigate the impact of a single incorrect selection on the overall bet.
  • Confidence in Multiple Selections: If a punter has confidence in multiple selections, a Super Heinz can leverage that confidence and add further value to any potential winnings they want to earn.

Like any betting type, there will always be benefits and drawbacks. With this in mind, we shall look at the plusses and minuses of a Super Heinz.

Benefits
  • Larger Returns: While the sheer number of bets may prove daunting, the necessary complexity offers the opportunity for the large payouts that may follow. This potential for exponential profit growth attracts punters willing to take calculated risks for the chance of substantial rewards.
  • Mix and Match: The Super Heinz bet uniquely diversifies one's bets across various selections, events, and outcomes. Such diversification can also serve as an efficient risk management strategy with highly unpredictable sports betting.
Drawbacks
  • Higher Losses: Due to the large number of bets involved, a Super Heinz bet carries a substantial risk of losing the entire initial stake. Make too many incorrect choices, and the cost of the bet can quickly outweigh any potential winnings that may come your way.
  • Complexity and Cost: Managing and tracking 120 bets can be overwhelming and time-consuming. Additionally, the initial stake required for a Super Heinz bet can be considerable, making it an expensive bet and one that may put punters off.

Conclusion

A Super Heinz bet presents both enticing benefits and considerable drawbacks. As with all forms of gambling, careful consideration of one's financial situation, risk tolerance, and knowledge of the sports or events being bet upon is crucial to making informed decisions.
