So, what is a lucky 31 bet?
A Lucky 31 Bet is a bet that consists of five selections that are rolled up into 31 bets, five singles, ten doubles, ten trebles, five 4-folds and a 5-fold accumulator. A lucky 31 bet is a great way to cover five selections by backing all the selections as singles, doubles, trebles, four-folds and a 5-fold, so you still get a nice return from your bet if only 2 or 3 of your five selections win.
It is not a common bet to place for football punters but the lucky 31 can be a nice thing to play with for a fun bet. I have never heard of any professional gamblers using them consistently but they are good for a weekend accumulator.
A lucky 31 bet is considered a full cover bet as each of your selections is covered by singles, doubles, trebles, 4-folds and a 5-fold.
Lucky 31 Bet Composition
You have five selections in a lucky 31 (1,2,3,4,5), below you can find a breakdown of how the bets are covered:
Singles: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Doubles: 1+2, 1+3, 1+4, 1+5, 2+3, 2+4, 2+5, 3+4, 3+5, 4+5
Trebles: 1+2+3, 1+2+4, 1+2+5, 1+3+4, 1+3+5, 1+4+5, 2+3+4, 2+3+5, 2+4+5, 3+4+5
4-Folds: 1+2+3+4, 1+2+3+5, 1+2+4+5, 1+3+4+5, 2+3+4+5
As a lucky 31 consists of 31 separate bets, if you were to put £1 on, your total stake would be £31 (£1 x 31).
What Is A Lucky 31 Bet Good For?
There is not really an obvious use case for the Lucky 31 bet so I would advise just using it for placing some fun bets with, maybe some longshot correct score bets or both teams to score and win bets would be most fun to do with this bet type.
