Calculator Instructions

Before you can work out the potential returns from your bet you need 5 pieces of information:

• The amount of money you would like to risk
• The odds of the 4 selections that you would like to back

Remember, a lucky 15 is made of 15 bets. If you choose a stake of £15, £15 will be the stake per bet. Since you are placing 15 bets your total stake would £225. To work out your stake per bet oin order to hit a target total stake, just divide your target total stake by 15:

Stake per bet = Target total stake / 15
Eg:
£1 = £15 / 15

Having worked out your ideal stake per bet enter it into the unit stake field in the calculator. Now add the fractional odds for each of your 4 selections. If you have decimal odds use the odds conversion calculator to convert them to fractional, then enter them into the lucky 15 calculator.

Hit the Calculate button to see the potential returns and profit of your Lucky 15 bet. As your bet progresses you can use the menu next to each selection to indicate whether it won or lost. Each time you change between won and lost just hit Calculate again to get an updated calculation of your returns and profit.

How Are The Returns Calculated?

To work out the returns from a Lucky 15 the first thing you need to do is work out which of the 15 bets won and which lost. Perhaps you are having a day out at Leicester races, it's the 6th September 2022 and you fancy the following runners:

• Leicester 13:00: Mrs Meader @ 11/2
• Leicester 13:30: Youngest @ 7/1
• Leicester 14:05: Rage Of Bamby @ 11/10
• Leicester 14:40: Rive Usk @ 9/2

Your bet got off to a flying start, with the first 3 legs all winning, but the 4th leg let you down. Using the chart above we can see that we ended up with the following winning bets:

DoubleMrs Meader + Rage Of Bamby12.65/1
DoubleYoungest + Rage Of Bamby15.8/1
TrebleMrs Meader + Youngest + Rage Of Bamby108.2/1

As the table shows, one losing selection has cost us just over half of our bets, with 8 losing and only 7 winning. However, this Lucky 15 still returns a decent profit:

Returns from all winning single bets: £16.60
Returns from all winning double bets: £82.45
Returns from all winning treble bets: £109.20

Total returns: £208.25

Total stake: £15

Profit: £193.25
