Trixie Bet: Gain the Huge Profits

Trixie Bet

One of many betting types offered by bookmakers is the trixie bet which is a multiple bet combining three selections. Is this betting type worth a try?

What Is A Trixie Bet?

A Trixie Bet is a three-selection wager that consists of four bets, namely the three doubles and the treble. The best thing about this bet is that even when one of your bets does not win, you are still guaranteed a return given that you win at least one out of three doubles.

Please take a look at the following table:

PartSelections (A/B/C)Number of Bets
Total Number of Bets4
DoubleAB1
DoubleAC1
DoubleBC1
TrebleABC1

As you can see we have to choose three selections which will be combined to generate a profit. Each of the three selections will be combined into three doubles and all three selections will be combined into one treble. That’s how the trixie bet works.
To generate a profit at least two of the three selections have to win. If just one selection wins or all selections lose, we lose all four bets. If two selections win we win one double but lose two doubles and the treble. And finally if all three selections win we win all three doubles and the treble which would generate a huge profit for us.

Example of a Trixie Bet

To show you how exactly the trixie bets works we build a trixie bet with our three selections which all have odds of 2/1 or 3.00. You can calculate your stakes and winnings with the calculator on aceodds.com or similar betting types with our own betting calculator.
So we put our three selections in there with odds of 2/1 and a stake of £100 per bet. That’s a total stake of £400 (four doubles of £100 and one treble of £100). Now we can calculate our winnings depending on the different possible outcomes. If all three selections win we receive a total profit of £5000. If two of the three selections win we receive a total profit of £500 and if only one or no selection wins we have a loss of our total stake of £400. So the possible winnings are very high but you have to choose your selections very carefully as the probability of winning a double or a treble is much lower than winning a single bet.

Are Trixie Bets better than single bets?

Usually we recommend to stick to single bets or sometimes a double bet. But if you choose your selections very carefully and do your analysis very well you can try such multiple bets like the trixie bet. But remember that the winning probability of multiple bets is much lower than winning a single bet. So if you want to make serious profit through your betting activity you better stick to single bets and place multiple bets only with small stakes.

When placing selections at higher odds you always have to keep in mind that there will be more and longer losing runs than placing single bets. So be prepared to win much less than 40-50% of your selections.
We personally only place these betting types with small stakes for a little fun and excitement. As the Football World Cup 2014 just started you can use the trixie bet for having more thrill while watching the tournament. But for serious profit we never use multiple bets.
