Multiples

Multiples are two or more bets combined to give large returns, bookies love these as they can be pretty poor value if you aren’t careful but compounding can work both ways 😉

Single

One bet on its own is known as a single.

Double

A bet on two selections; both of which must win to gain a return.

Treble

A bet on three selections; all three of which must win to gain a return.

Accumulator

A bet on four or more selections; all of which must win to gain a return. Accumulators are often named after the number of selections they contain – thus we can get a fourfold, fivefold or sixfold accumulator (or even higher).
