How is a Patent Bet Calculated?

Enter the details of your Patent bet, and our calculator will instantly tell you how much your winnings will be on any betting site where you place the bet. There is also an option to make it an each way bet.

To calculate the winnings of a Patent bet, one must calculate the outcome of seven bets on three selections. A Patent bet consists of the following:

  • 3 singles
  • 3 doubles
  • 1 treble

Our Patent Bets explained article provides a comprehensive guide and includes an infographic if you’re still unsure.

Example of How the Patent Bet Calculator Works

A patent bet consists of seven bets across three selections. It’s a good way of increasing potential returns on a smaller number of matches or events. Say you’re backing the following outcomes in these three matches:

  • Match 1: Arsenal to beat Manchester United (odds of 6/4)
  • Match 2: Chelsea to beat Fulham (odds of 1/2)
  • Match 3: Manchester City to beat Burnley (odds of 2/5)

If you place a £10 patent bet (£70 total bet) and all three selections are right then you’ll win £200 with a profit of £130. However, say only two of your three matches come in and Fulham beat Chelsea in Match 2. The advantage of the patent bet shows through here as you’d still win £74 with a profit of £4.
