Super Heinz Explained

  • A Super Heinz bet is a form of multiple, popular on horse racing and football
  • It consists of 120 bets on seven selections
  • It is known as a full cover bet
  • We explain fully how they work with this concise guide

When you place a Super Heinz bet, you are placing 120 bets on seven different selections. A £1 win-only Super Heinz bet would, therefore, cost £120.

A Super Heinz contains no single bets. At least two selections of the seven must win for any return to be achieved on the bet.

The 120 bets consist of

  • 21 doubles
  • 35 trebles
  • 35 four-folds accumulators
  • 21 five-fold accumulators
  • 7 six-fold accumulators
  • 1 seven-fold accumulator

How Many Selections Need to Win for a Super Heinz Bet to Be Profitable?

The price of each selection will have a large influence on how many selections need to win for a Super Heinz to be profitable. My Betting Sites has prepared an example which can be used as an indicator.

Example – you bet £1 on a Super Heinz at a total stake of £120. Each horse is priced at 4.00.

  • 0 selection wins£0 return with a profit of -£120
  • 1 selection wins – £0 return with a profit of -£120
  • 2 selection wins £16 return with a profit of -£-104
  • 3 selection wins –  £112 return with a profit of £-8
  • 4 selection wins –  £608 return with a profit of £488
  • 5 selection wins£3,104 return with a profit of £2,984
  • 6 selection wins£15,600 return with a profit of £15,480
  • 7 selection wins£78,096 return with a profit of £77,976

The breakeven point in the example is around three winning selections. Four or more is likely to generate a profit. Although these are only example prices, it is apparent how a fully winning Super Heinz can generate high returns.

Why Make a Super Heinz Bet?

The very high returns a Super Heinz can generate are appealing to punters. The same high return could be achieved with a single seven-fold accumulator, but it would require all selections to win for a return to be generated.

A Super Heinz bet is a more exciting way to bet on a multiple as it increases the chance of a return.  Providing two of the seven selections win, some returns will be generated. 

The disadvantage of a Super Heinz bet is the higher stake it requires. With 120 bets instead of one, the stake will be very higher. You need to consider the increased chance of winning is worth the higher stake.

Is It Possible to Do an Each Way Super Heinz?

Yes.

An each way Super Heinz bet consists of 240 bets. 120 bets are as described above, and 120 additional bets are for the selections to place.

We have another article which explains how each way bets work in more detail.

Summary

A Super Heinz bet consists of 120 bets over seven different selections. It has 21 doubles, 35 trebles, 35 four-fold accumulators, and 21 five-fold accumulators, seven six-fold accumulators, and one seven-fold accumulator. Although it has a higher stake than a traditional accumulator, it does make a return more likely.
