GOLIATH BET

The Goliath bet is a wager consisting of 8 selections, and 247 separate bets. The bet consists of 28 doubles, 70 four folds, 56 trebles, 56 five folds, 8 seven-folds, 28 six-folds, and an eight-fold accumulator. Among all the bet available the Goliath is one of the largest and it will not be wise for an inexperienced punter to take a chance on it. This bet has the capability to earn a huge amount of money if an individual has sufficient funds to bet on. As this is a huge bet it is not possible to calculate the earnings manually, and hence a Goliath calculator is used to do the same. A return is inevitable if at least two selections of the bet is declared winner. Football and Horse racing are the sports convenient for a goliath bet.

The combination of the bet do not consist singles, it starts with doubles. Atleast 8 matches has to be selected by a player before the Goliath bet option can be used. A Goliath bet can be calculated in the following way, say the bet is placed on 8 matches, namely, a,b,c,d,e,f,g and h, and the stake amount say 50. The total resulting stake amount has to be 50247= 12350. Each correct combination along with individual bets are given credit upon winning.

For the 28 doubles it will be,

  • a*b X 50 = Wins
  • a*c X 50 = Wins
  • a*d X 50 = Wins
  • a*e X 50 = Wins
  • a*f X 50 = Wins
  • b*c X 50 = Wins
  • b*d X 50 = Wins
  • b*e X 50 = Wins
  • b*f X 50 = Wins
  • c*d X 50 = Wins
  • c*e X 50 = Wins
  • c*f X 50 = Wins
  • d*e X 50 = Wins
  • d*f X 50 = Wins, etc are the possible

combination. 13 other combinations are present as well.

Next comes the 56 Trebles

  • a*b*c X 50 = Wins

  • a*c*e X 50 = Wins
  • a*c*f X 50 = Wins
  • a*d*e X 50 = Wins

The Accumulator

  • A*B*C*D*E*F*G*H X 50 = Wins

So, it is seen that at least two selection needs to win in order to earn. These permutations are more clearly understood by experienced punters. The calculations are very completed and the number of lines involved are pretty huge. The Goliath calculator comes to aid here. It takes in the input and amount of stakes and gives out the winning amount as the result. Although the Goliath, named after the Biblical character due to its size, gives a huge return, but on the other hand the number of stakes is also higher than the other bets.
