9.10. Lucky 15

  1. A Lucky 15 consists of fifteen bets involving four selections from different events, combining 4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 accumulator. You need only one winner to guarantee a return.
  2. In the event of one winner only, your winnings are doubled if all selections are chosen from Horse Racing or Greyhounds.
  3. For four winners out of four a bonus of 10% is added to winnings on the win part of the bet (winnings = the return for the win part of the bet minus the win stakes for that bet) if all selections are chosen from Horse Racing or Greyhounds.
  4. If a Lucky 15 contains a non runner no bonuses will apply to that bet.

    For example, if the 4 selections and their odds were:

    A = 2.00B = 3.50C = 4.00D = 1.50

    (Fractional equivalent: Evens, 5/2, 3/1 & 1/2)

    a) If all 4 selections won in a €1 Lucky 15 the winnings would be calculated as such:

    4 x Singles

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A2.00= 2.00
    B3.50= 3.50
    C4.00= 4.00
    D1.50= 1.50

    6 x Doubles

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A + B2.00 x 3.50= 7.00
    A + C2.00 x 4.00= 8.00
    A + D2.00 x 1.50= 3.00
    B + C3.50 x 4.00= 14.00
    B + D3.50 x 1.50= 5.25
    C + D4.00 x 1.50= 6.00

    4 x Trebles

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A + B + C2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00= 28.00
    A + B + D2.00 x 3.50 x 1.50= 10.50
    A + C + D2.00 x 4.00 x 1.50= 12.00
    B + C + D3.50 x 4.00 x 1.50= 21.00

    1 x Accumulator

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A + B + C + D2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00 x 1.50= 42.00

    Total Payout = €167.75 minus stake €15.00, leaving total winnings of €152.75.
    As all 4 have won the 10% bonus on winnings applies (for Horse Racing and Greyhounds only, see Rule 9.10.3).
    Therefore Bonus is 10% of €152.75 = €15.27

    Total payout is therefore €167.75 + €15.27 = €183.02
    The cost of the bet is €15.00, leaving a profit in this instance of €168.02.

    b) Using the same odds and stake as above, if only selection C won and the other 3 selections lost, the winnings would be calculated as such:

    The only winning bet would be the single on Selection C, all other single and multiple bets would be losers.

    As per Rule 9.10.2 above, with only 1 winner your winnings are doubled, if all selections are chosen from Horse Racing or Greyhounds, therefore:
    €1 x €4.00 (payout) — €1 (stake) = €3.

    Winnings on selection C with bonus
    €3 x 2 = €6.00.

    Payout on selection C with bonus
    €6 (winnings) + €1 (stake) = €7.00

    The cost of the bet is €15.00, leaving a loss in this instance of €8.00.
