What is a super heinz bet?

< Return to what is a heinzGo to what is a goliath >

·       The 'Super Heinz' bet requires the bettor to pick 7 selections, which results in a total of 120 bets overall within this bet type. The 120 bets within a Super Heinz are as follows; 21 doubles, 35 trebles, 35 four-fold accumulators, 21 five-fold accumulators, 7 six-fold accumulators and 1 seven-fold accumulator.

A super heinz bet is a variety of a heinz bet that more than doubles the number of bets that are included in its counterpart. Bettors who wish to place a super heinz bet make seven selections and from those selections a total of 120 separate bets are made. 

Due to the very high number of bets being placed, the amount of money the bettor will stake is very high too. That's because the stake is actually a stake per bet and it is multiplied for every one of the 120 bets made. If a punter places a £2 unit stake, they are actually placing a bet worth £240. If they are placing a bet worth £10 per unit stake, the overall stake rises to £1,200. 


The benefits of a super heinz bet are the reassurances it offers bettors. Even if some of the seven selections a bettor makes as part of a heinz bet do not win, the bettor can still make a return. However, it should still be noted that seven selections is a very high number to make and anyone considering this kind of a bet should know the sport and the participants they are betting on well. 

Super heinz bet

The heinz bet takes its name from the Heinz company, which is best known for making soup and other foods. In the company's early days in 1896, it ran an advertising campaign that promised 57 pickle varieties. As the regular heinz bet offers 57 different bets, the bet is named after that slogan. The super heinz bet simply expands on these 57 bets and so has retained the name with the addition of the word super to emphasise the exaggerated size. 

The super heinz bet is designed to cover a large variety of possible outcomes, but it does not cover all of them. If only one of the selections were to win, the bettor would not make a return because there are no single bets being made as part of the super heinz bet. The bets that are being made are as follows: one seven-fold accumulator, 7 six-selection accumulators, 21 five-fold accumulators, 21 double bets, 35 treble bets and 35 four-fold accumulators.


To understand how the bet would work out, it can be useful to apply it to a real world scenario. Let's imagine that the following outcomes are being bet upon in seven matches across a weekend of football:

  • Manchester United to beat Newcastle United
  • Arsenal to beat Tottenham Hotspur
  • Bournemouth to beat Brighton and Hove Albion
  • Everton to beat Liverpool
  • West Ham United to beat Leicester City 
  • Watford to beat Manchester City
  • Huddersfield Town to beat Fulham

The bettor is making a wide variety of bets on different scenarios. As part of the double bets, just two of the selections need to win. For example, Manchester United and Arsenal could win and every other prediction could not happen and the bettor would still make a return. Likewise, Watford and Huddersfield Town could win and all the other teams could not win and again the bettor would make a return.

As part of the treble bets, only three teams need to win. So, for example, Everton, West Ham United and Huddersfield Town could win and every other prediction could fail and the bettor could still make a return.

The accumulators require four, five and six selections to win. So, Bournemouth, Everton, West Ham and Watford could win and all the other teams could not win and that four-fold would pay out. Manchester United, Arsenal, Everton, Watford and Huddersfield could win and everyone else not win and that five-fold would pay out. Or, Manchester United, Arsenal, Bournemouth, Everton, West Ham and Watford could win and the six-fold would pay out. Of course, if all the selections won then the seven-fold accumulator would pay out.


The return that a bettor can make for a super heinz bet will vary greatly depending on which of the bets wins. If one of the doubles were to win, the pay out would be reasonably small, but if the seven-fold accumulator were to pay out, the return would be very high. This is because the likelihood of all seven selections winning is much lower than that of just two of the selections winning. 

As a result, the super heinz bet is a very tempting one to take on. It can deliver very high payouts and it is not improbably that some payout will be secured because of the variety of bets that are being made. However, the expense necessary to place one of these bets should not be ignored. 

Bettors who are wishing to place a super heinz bet should know the sport and the field they are placing the bet on if they want to stand a good chance of reaping full rewards. Those who do not could find themselves losing out. 


Other forms of multiple bets

A Super Heinz bet is a multiple bet. These bets allow people to bundle a wide range of bets and/or selections into one single bet and reap the rewards. As has already been explained, double bets and treble bets are simple kinds of multiple bets, which allow bettors to bring multiple selections together and get a payout if those selections win. A trixie bet is a kind of treble bet and allows bettors to make four bets from three selections: these bets are three double bets and one treble bet. 

Patent bets, Canadian bets, Yankee bets and Lucky 15s are forms of accumulators that are similar in nature to the heinz bet and super heinz bet, but differ in terms of the number of bets and selections they allow the bettor to make. As part of a patent bet, seven bets are being made from three selections. Under a yankee bet 11 bets are being placed from four selections. Finally, as part of a Lucky 15 a total of 15 bets are being placed from four selections.
