So, what is a goliath bet?
A Goliath Bet is a bet that consists of eight selections that are rolled up into 247 bets, 28 doubles, 56 trebles, 70 4-folds, 56 5-folds, 28 6-folds, 8 7-folds and an 8-fold. It is named a goliath bet due to the sheer size of the bet and number of bets it creates for you, imagine placing 247 individual bets.
A Goliath bet is a huge bet and there is not an easy way to explain why you would even want to use it other than for a bit of fun.
A goliath bet is considered a full cover bet as each of your selections is covered by doubles, trebles, 4-folds, 5-folds, 6-fold, 7-folds and an 8-fold.

4-Folds: x 70
5-Folds: x 56
6-Folds: x 28
