What is a Trixie Bet?

Accumulators are great, but they have one big disadvantage - if any one of your selections loses then your entire bet is void. This is where combination bets come in. With a combination bet, you combine different accumulators. If one of them loses, then you still gets the returns from the others. If they all come home, then you're in the money big time. A Trixie, then, consists of one Treble accumulator and three Double accumulators. Click here to add an example Trixie bet into the calculator below. Once added, you should play around with the status of each bet (Win/Lose) to see what effect one of your selections not winning would have.

As you can see, the Trixie allows you to hedge your bets in a way that still allows you to bring in a profit even if one of your selections loses. So what's the downside? Should we always just place a Trixie instead of a Treble? Well, not necessarily. You'll see that for a Trixie, if you enter a £1 stake in the calculator then your Total Stake becomes £4 (£1 for each combination). A £4 treble at the same odds would win you more than twice as much. So, as ever, we're trading some safety in the bets for lower profits.
