BOG Lucky 15’s
After finding out the hard way that Betfred do not pay best odds guaranteed (BOG) on Lucky 15 bets i thought i would do a quick bit of research to each bookmakers stance on these. With WillHill paying double odds (as opposed to betfred’s triple odds) for one winner but also offering BOG I will most likely opt to use them when placing these types of bets in the future. Below is a summary:
Is the Best Odds Guaranteed offer only available for single bets?
Absolutely not, the offer applies to both your single and multiple bets placed on qualifying races. If your multiple bet contains some Best Odds Guaranteed races, prices in those races will be honoured at either the price you take or the SP, whichever is greater.
Only 1 winner – double the odds
4 winners – 10% added to total winnings
Best Odds Guaranteed is available on every Horse race. This includes bet365 Early Prices and shows from the racecourse, in singles and multiple bets. Showcasts are included. Ante-Post and Tote/Pari-Mutuel and Not to Win bets are excluded.
Note: Multiple bets include Lucky 15s
52.3 LUCKY 15, LUCKY 31, LUCKY 63
The following general rules apply to ‘Lucky’ bet types:
Concessions and bonuses are available on our ‘Lucky’ bets. Bonuses on ‘Lucky’ bets only apply to horseracing, greyhounds or a combination of both.
If a different sport is included, and accepted as a selection it will not qualify for any bonus or concession.
A bonus payment will result if the bet contains one winning selection only.
If one winner is selected the odds will be doubled for the winning selection. This consolation/bonus will be paid for the win part of the bet only. The bonus value may vary from shop to shop.
Our shop betting rules apply for all circumstances not covered by these rules.
if you select one winner (and three losers) the win part of the odds for that one winner are doubled;
if you select four winners then 10% extra is added to the cumulative returns of the win part of the bet.
A Lucky 15 is similar to a yankee but also has singles. It consists of fifteen bets on four selections in different events i.e. 4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 fourfold accumulator. One or more selection must be successful to have a return. If you only have one winner then Paddy Power will double the price of that selection (only applies to Horse/Greyhound Racing Lucky 15s. Void selections do not count as losers. Bonus applies to win part of each-way bets only.) A €1/£1 Lucky 15 costs €15/£15.
Exceptions – Guaranteed Prices do not apply to:
Bets placed at ante-post odds
Combined horse bets
Bets on international racing
Note: Guaranteed prices apply to win and each way markets only.
888sport – no Lucky 15 option when 4 selections are made, therefore no bonuses or single winner odds doubled/trebled.
if you select one winner (and three losers) the win part of the odds for that one winner are tripled;
-Offer does not apply to prices taken after the first show.
-Offer does not apply for Lucky 15s, 31s and 63s.
-Offer does not apply to Ante Post, Tote or Pari-Mutuel.
-Best Odds will not be applied where non runners result in the race reverting to SP only.
