How to Calculate a Lucky 63 Bet?
Lucky 63 Bet Defined
Before we discuss the Lucky 63 bet calculator, let’s look at what a Lucky 63 bet is. A Lucky 63 bet, commonly used in horse racing and football, consists of six selections on separate events resulting in a total of 63 bets. You can view the Lucky 63 bet as an extension of the Heinz bet which involves 57 bets in all. The difference is that, unlike the Heinz bet, the Lucky 63 bet allows 6 single bets.
The word ‘lucky’ is appended because the package includes certain lucky bonuses that could be in the form of either a percentage bonus added when you achieve specified returns or a consolation bonus offered as an odds multiplier when only one of your selections wins. We have illustrated the Lucky 63 bet in the following table, assuming that your six selections are A, B, C, D, E and F.
|Components of Lucky 63 Bet||Number of bets||Possible combinations|
|6 Singles||6||A, B, C, D, E, F|
|15 Doubles||15||AB, AC, AD, AE, AF
BC, BD, BE, BF, CD
CE, CF, DE, DF, EF
|20 Trebles||20||ABC, ABD, ABE, ABF, ACD
ACE, ACF, ADE, ADF, AEF
BCD, BCE, BCF, BDE, BDF
BEF, CDE, CDF, CEF, DEF
|15 Fourfold accumulators||15||ABCD, ABCE, ABCF, ABDE, ABDF
ABEF, ACDE, ACDF, ACEF, ADEF
BCDE, BCDF, BCEF, BDEF, CDEF
|5 Fivefold accumulators||6||ABCDE, ABCDF, ABCEF, ABDEF, ACDEF, BCDEF|
|1 Sixfold accumulator||1||ABCDEF|
The minimum stake on a Lucky 63 bet would be ₹630 (10 x 63) if you placed a minimum of ₹10 on each bet. So, to make a profit, you would need to get a yield of more than ₹630.
To calculate returns on an accumulator, use decimal odds. For instance, you can convert fractional odds of 2/1 into decimal odds of 3.00. After that, you must calculate the product of the decimal odds of each bet in an accumulator to find out your overall returns.
The Lucky 63 bet involves 63 bets on six selections. Assume that three selections A, B and C won, with each offering odds of 2/1:
- 3 singles (A, B and C) would yield a total return of ₹90 (₹10 x 3 x 3).
- 3 doubles (AB, AC and BC) would yield a total return of ₹270 (₹10 x 3 x 3 x 3)
- 1 treble (ABC) would yield a return of ₹270 (3x3x3x₹10)
Thus, your overall returns would be ₹630, achieving a break-even. As a player, you can see that even three of six selections could help you recover your stake if minimum fractional odds of 2/1 (decimal odds of 3.00) were offered on each selection, without even having to consider any lucky bonus.
What if you won four selections with fractional odds of 1/1 (decimal odds of 2.0) offered? Your total returns would then be ₹800, fetching you a profit of ₹170 on your stake of ₹630.
With a betting odds calculator, Lucky 63 can prove very profitable. The calculator will reduce the risk by informing you what minimum odds must be offered before you wager your money.
