What is a Patent bet?
A Patent bet is an accumulator bet that consists of 7 separate bets on just three horses
It’s similar to a Lucky 15 but you are covering 3 selections not 4.
As you’re placing seven bets, your stake is multiplied by seven a £1 patent costs £7.
If you manage to pick three winners, you’ll see some cracking returns, but it’s always worth making sure you’re getting some decent value.
Two winners generally returns a good profit.
Any one winning choice from the patent is enough to generate a return – this is considered to be one of the main advantages over a trixie which also covers 3 selections but does not include the singles.

Then some one two one
Each selection appears once in 1 single, 2 doubles and 1 treble
