What is a heinz bet?
A Heinz is a type of multiple bet that can be placed when exactly six outcomes have been added to your betslip. It comprises fifty seven bets in total, being made up of 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-fold combinations, 6 five-fold combinations and 1 six-fold combination. Because of this, your chosen stake will be multiplied by 57 to cover the overall cost of the bet. At least two outcomes must be settled as a winner on a Heinz bet to receive a return.
Example of a heinz bet
To place a Heinz bet, you must first choose six outcomes from sporting events found at Unibet. This can be from a mixture of different sports and markets, but not from the exact same event. An example could be:
- Erling Haaland to score first for Man City vs Brighton (odds: 3.50)
- Martin Ødegaard to score first for Arsenal vs Leeds (odds: 11.00)
- Man Utd to beat Leeds and Both Teams to Score (odds: 3.40)
- Newcastle to draw vs Tottenham (odds: 3.50)
- New England Patriots to beat the Buffalo Bills (odds 2.75)
- Daniil Medvedev to win the US Open (odds: 7.00)
Enter your desired stake into the Heinz box in your betslip. This will be multiplied automatically by 57 to give the final outlay, i.e. a €0.25 stake will equate to €14.25.
Each component of the bet will be multiplied by the €0.25 stake and then added together to give the final returns.
The lowest payout possible would come if only outcomes number 3 and 5 were to win, resulting in €2.34. This is calculated as (3.40 x 2.75) x €0.25.
If all six outcomes are successful, the winnings would equate to an impressive €8,010.96 (giving us €7,996.71 profit minus the €14.25 total stake).
Pros and cons of a heinz bet
A Heinz bet acts as protection should some of your selections not be successful. In the above example, if the winning selections include the outcomes 2 and/or 6, this will guarantee a positive return even if three other selections lose due to their high odds. The cons of placing a Heinz is the extensive cost required to cover the 57 betting lines. Likewise, if only two smaller odds selections win, the returns will not make the overall outlay worth it.

How to use the bet calculator
The Unibet Betting Odds Calculator makes it incredibly easy to instantly view the returns of your selected bet type and stake. You can also easily change the odds display from fractional to decimal in the top right corner of the page, as per your preference.
To begin, first you must decide which type of bet you are looking to place. The Unibet Calculator ranges from simple doubles, trebles and combinations through to more advanced Trixies, Yankees, Heinz and Lucky 63 multiples, etc.
For example, if you select a ‘Goliath’ multiple bet, this will generate eight blank selections that make up a Goliath bet. You must now enter the odds of each of your eight picks manually, followed by the stake per line.
By pressing ‘Calculate Now’ this will display the total stake required to place the bet, along with the Total Return and Total Profit. Another great tool is that you can easily switch each selection from being a Winner into a Lost or Void outcome. Your overall returns will be adjusting automatically after calculating the returns again. This is a great way of visualising how your bet will perform should one or more selections not be successful.
Additional betting considerations
For horse racing gamblers in particular, the Unibet Betting Odds Calculator includes the provision for Each Way betting. By selecting this, the fields will now include an option for you to adjust the Place odds (as displayed on the race betting page itself) and thus instantly calculate the returns if your horse were to finish in the applicable place positions.
Another provision is that of Rule 4 deductions. This is implemented in a horse race if a participant is withdrawn after you have placed your bet – therefore adjusting the odds. Depending on the horse that has been withdrawn, you can adjust the deduction manually by selecting either 5% to 20% per Euro bet. Finally, you can also adjust the outcome to that of a Dead Heat should multiple horses cross the finish line at exactly the same time.
