Placing
A Bet
The
most simple way of bets is a "Win
Single". This is when your
selection is bet to win a selected event,
such as a horse race, dog race, football
game, golf tournament, snooker etc. 



Following
on there is a "Double"
or "Treble".
This is when two or three selections are picked
to win and the money coming from the first winner
goes onto the next and the next if successful.
£1
win @ 2/1 Winner = £3 1st winner 
£3
win @ 2/1 Winner = £9 2nd winner 
£9
win @ 2/1 Winner = £27 3rd winner All
you have staked is the original £1.
After 3 selections your bet is refered to
as an accumulator.
With as many selections as you require
with all monies, going on from each
winner on to the next and so on.
Most
bets are made up from these basic bets
but are given different names. Here is a
list of some popular ones.
Patent
= 7 Bets 3 Selections
A patent consists of 7 bets from
3 selections in different events.
Each one is a single bet, plus
Doubles on each pair, plus Treble
all 3. 
Yankee
= 11 Bets 4 Selections
This bet has no singles but
consists of 6 Doubles, 4 Trebles
& 1 ACC. 
S
Yankee= 26 Bets 5
Selections
Again, no Singles but with 10
Doubles, 10 Trebles, 5 Four Fold
ACCs & 1 Five Fold ACC. 
Heinz
= 57 Bets 6 Selections
No Singles, 15 Doubles, 20
Trebles, 15 Four Fold Accs, 6
Five Fold Accs & 1 Six Fold
Acc. 
As you can see all the above are
calculated mathematically from
the number of selections chosen.
Therfore, if 8 selections are
chosen it would be 247 Bets. IE.
28 Doubles, 56 Trebles, 70 Four
Folds, 56 Five Folds, 28 Six
Folds, 8 Sevens & 1 Eight
Fold ACC.To
calculate how many bets in an
amount of selections here is a
formula to help :
Doubles
in 9 Selections = 9
x 8 / 1 x 2 = 72 / 2 = 36 Trebles
in 9 Selections = 9
x 8 x 7 / 1 x 2 x 3 = 504
/ 6 = 84
Four
Fold in 9 Selections = 9
x 8 x 7 x 6 / 1 x 2 x 3 x
4 = 3024 / 24 = 126
Formula
= No's down from number
of selections (Eg 9) by
the number to be found 
Doubles 2, Treble 3 over
1 up to the number to be
found.
IE. 5 Folds in 9 = 9
x 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 / 1 x 2 x
3 x 4 x 5 = 15120 / 120 =
126
This
applies in any number of
selections you choose.
