What is a Trixie Bet?
Often referred to as a Full Cover Bet, a Trixie is a highly popular form of betting which adds a particular spice to your betting routine.
The biggest allure of a Trixie bet is the fact it adds value to your betting selection and offers a potentially high profit on a relatively low stake which – in its own merit – is every punter’s dream. Finding a good Trixie bet is not an easy task but – then again – hardly anything is these days and we are here to provide a full explanation of a Trixie for all punters who are looking to try it out.
Trixie Bet Explanation
The easiest way to explain a Trixie bet is to offer a simple definition which states that it’s a betting combination consisting of four bets on three selections. A Trixie is applied to multiples which provide extra bets in a combination, as opposed to betting on three straight single bets.
Particularly popular with Horse Racing punters, a Trixie bet offers full coverage on all combinations of multiples across other sports as well, when three selections are taken into the consideration. A Trixie is usually 3 doubles and a treble wager with the total of four bets in it.
Note, however, that two or more selections must go through in order for players to achieve a return on a Trixie bet.
How Does a Trixie Bet Work?
A Trixie bet requires great knowledge on sport you’re betting on and confidence in selections you are putting together in this combo bet. The combination allows punters to test their limits by placing a high-risk bet at slightly bigger prices where a Trixie bet can prove to be highly profitable.
The main difference between a Trixie bet and three straight single bets is the stake. Players need to remember that they are not betting on single stakes but will see their wager being calculated on three double bets and one treble which is exactly why the potential profit is much higher.
For a £1 bet on an each-way Trixie bet in Horse Racing, you will have to invest the total of £8. For the odds of 1/4 on places 1, 2, 3 in permutations bet, the best-case scenario of all three horses winning – at 5/1, 5/2 and 9/2 odds – you will be pocketing a profit of £200.
When betting on a football match, a Trixie bet is best used in goalscorers’ market when you bet on anytime or first goal scorer in a potentially lucrative combination. The Trixie is normally used for three selections to either win or be placed but in football terms a £1 bet on three different goalscorers to score anytime could see you pocket more than £100 with all selections building up to a 3/1 bet.
A tiny reminder though on goalscoring Trixie bets at £1 is that you will be putting in an actual stake of £4 given that you are looking to cover all four options of a £1 bet. For a £4 bet in this instance, not only will you be in for a possible £100 windfall but you will also scoop a £12 profit if two of three players get their name on the scoresheet and your treble loses.
