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 sevenfolds, 28 sixfolds, and an eightfold 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 50×247= 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

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

 c*d*e X 50 = Wins
 c*d*f X 50 = Wins
 c*e*f X 50 = Wins
 d*e*f 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.
