A Lucky 15 is a popular bet in the world of horse racing, largely because it can generate huge returns from a relatively small stake, but many more inexperienced punters are not familiar with how the bet works.

What is a Lucky 15 bet?

As the name suggests, a Lucky 15 consists of 15 separate bets across four selections, although you can also back them each way to make a total of 30 separate bets. These bets are:

  • Four singles
  • Six doubles
  • Four trebles
  • One four-fold

This means that even if only a couple of your selections land you’re likely to make a profit, depending on the odds of your winning legs, and a single winner still guarantees you some return.

For example, if you back four horses at 2/1 with a £1 stake on each bet (£15 total stake) you would win £265.5 if all four selections win, but even if only two of them win you would still get your stake back in winnings.
