It consists of seven individual selections, which form the basis for one sevenfold accumulator, seven sixfolds, 21 fivefolds, 35 fourfolds, 35 trebles and 21 doubles.
You can see a Super Heinz Bet explained in the same way as a standard Heinz Bet, which is based on six selections that form 57 bets. There’s only one more selection in a Super Heinz, but this provides the additional 63 bets that differentiate the two.
Super Heinz betting is popular in a number of sports, including football bets. It’s most common in horse racing bets though. You will receive a payout from a Super Heinz Bet with two correct selections from your seven, while the potential for profit depends on the odds attached to each leg.

How do you make a Super Heinz Bet?
To make a Super Heinz Bet, you must first pick seven selections from seven different events. If you’re betting on horse racing, this means choosing seven horses to win seven different races. You can’t pick two winners from the same race.
After making your picks, simply select the Super Heinz option on your betslip by entering your desired stake in the appropriate box. Remember that your total stake will be multiplied by 120 to cover all of the individual bets within the wager.
Using horse racing by way of example, a Super Heinz Bet is made up as follows:
Bets 1 to 21 – 21 doubles
Bets 22 to 56 – 35 trebles
Bets 57 to 91 – 35 fourfolds
Bets 92 to 112 – 21 fivefolds
Bets 113 to 119 – Seven sixfolds
Bet 120 – Horse 1, Horse 2, Horse 3, Horse 4, Horse 5, Horse 6 and Horse 7 sevenfold
In a horse racing Super Heinz Bet, it’s also possible to back your selections each way. This means that if your horses only place, rather than win, then you’ll still receive a return for that part of your bet. This doubles your total stake and is a popular form of hedge betting to build an extra layer of safety into Super Heinz betting.
How do you calculate a Super Heinz Bet?
Still wondering ‘what is a Super Heinz Bet?’. If so, it’s probably a good idea to take a closer look at how this type of bet is made up, along with an example of how to calculate one.
Double bet = Horse 1 odds x Horse 2 odds
Treble bet = Horse 1 odds x Horse 2 odds x Horse 3 odds
Fourfold = Horse 1 odds x Horse 2 odds x Horse 3 odds x Horse 4 odds
Fivefold = Horse 1 odds x Horse 2 odds x Horse 3 odds x Horse 4 odds x Horse 5 odds
Sixfold = Horse 1 odds x Horse 2 odds x Horse 3 odds x Horse 4 odds x Horse 5 odds x Horse 6 odds
Sevenfold = Horse 1 odds x Horse 2 odds x Horse 3 odds x Horse 4 odds x Horse 5 odds x Horse 6 odds x Horse 7 odds
To work out the potential returns from your Super Heinz Bet, we need to add the odds on each horse and your stake into the calculation. For ease, imagine each horse has odds of 2/1 and your stake on each individual bet is £10.
Double bet – £10 x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) = Total return £90 / Total profit £80
Treble bet – £10 x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) = Total return £270 / Total profit £260
Fourfold – £10 x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) = Total return £810 / Total profit £800
Fivefold – £10 x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) = Total return £2,430 / Total profit £2,420
Sixfold – £10 x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) = Total return £7,290 / Total profit £7,280
Sevenfold – £10 x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) x (2/1 + 1) = Total return £21,870 / Total profit £21,860
To calculate the total return from your Super Heinz Bet, you need to add together the payout from each individual leg. In this example, your 21 doubles are worth £1,890, 35 trebles £9,450, 35 fourfolds £28,350 and 21 fivefolds £51,030, while your seven sixfolds are also worth £51,030 and your sevenfold £21,870. This gives a total payout of £163,620. Minus your stake of £1,200, that’s a profit of £162,420.
Even with such simple odds for each selection, it’s easy to see that Super Heinz Bets are complicated and take some time to work out. To eliminate this, you can use a Super Heinz Bet calculator to work out your returns instantly.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of a Super Heinz Bet?
The main advantage of a Super Heinz Bet is that you can still turn a significant profit even if a number of your selections let you down. Super Heinz Bets are a popular form of hedge betting, allowing you to build protection into an accumulator. Returns are high, while choosing a Super Heinz Bet is also much faster than placing some or all of the 120 bets individually.
What are the disadvantages of a Super Heinz Bet?
If all seven of your selections lose, then you effectively lose 120 bets with a Super Heinz Bet. However, the probability of this is much more unlikely compared to betting on a standard accumulator. It can also be considered a disadvantage that you must place the same stake on all of the bets within a Super Heinz, rather than risking less money on the least likely legs, i.e. the sevenfold accumulator.

Super Heinz Bets are possible across a variety of sports such as football, although they are most popular in horse racing.
