When we could win via the Trixie bet

As we mentioned earlier, Trixie bet is a multiple bet option similar to the system patent (link). The major difference being that Trixie bet do not cover not even one single bet, so in order to guarantee a win you must get at least 2 winners out of 3 selections.

Using the Trixie bet we are actually making 4 bets on the chosen by us 3 selections:

  • Bet 1 – selection 1 and selection 2 (double)
  • Bet 2 – Selection 1 and selection 3 (double)
  • Bet 3 – Selection 2 and selection 3 (double)
  • Bet 4 – selection 1, selection 2 and selection 3 (treble)

Here are the possible outcomes:

  • Outcome 1 – You don’t get right not a single event from the chosen three – the wager is lost and we are not getting anything from the bet.
  • Outcome 2 – You get only one of the three events. In this case you will not get anything in and lose your bet either.
  • Outcome 3 – You get two out of three selections giving a winning double. We are guaranteeing ourselves a return of the bet amount and we are getting a profit which is calculated by the following formula:

    ( total stake / 4 ) x (( Winning Selection 1 odd x Winning Selection 2 odd ) – 1) – ( total stake / 4 ) x 3

  • Outcome 4 – You are guessing right all 3 selections of your betting slip. In this case the profit is the biggest as we are winning all three doubles and one treble. If we take the odds from the above given example: Selection 1 – odd 3.60, Selection 2 – odd 1.61, Selection 3 – odd 2.20 and we decide to place a 10 euro bet, we will have total amount of the win – 40 euro and calculated by the following formula:

    10 x (3.60 x 1.61) + 10 x (3.60 x 2.20) + 10 x (1.61 x 2.20) + 10 x (3.60 x 1.61 x 2.20) – 40 = +260 Euro Profit
