    Hi

    Basically I think I have a winning bet but there is some debate of how the odds will work, I have searched and searched all over the net and all I find is a five fold = 5 selections all have to be correct to gain a return....however..... I have a coupon with 8 selections and a 5 fold bet and the coupon has on it 56x0.75 so basically I put £42 on it.

    So does a five fold mean I just need 5 out of 8 right and the 56x0.75 is the amount of combinations needed for the bet to be covered. The bottom of the coupon says "if all selections are correct you will recive £880.64" and the debate is that this return is the absoloute maximum odds? So I am completely lost :54:..... this is because I usually put on accumulators but got told I will only need 5 right to win and I always come close so thought I was on to a sure thing.

    So I need a life saver to explain this to me :87:

    Cheers

    This is correct. If you get only five (out of eight) correct, you only have one fivefold. If its 6, you have 6 paying lines. 7 out of 8 means 21 paying lines and 8 correct will give you 56. In order to get your money back I would reckon you would need at least 6 correct. You will make a profit with 7 correct and win a fair bit if you get them all right.

    If you have a five fold surely it's based on the
    stake,so what is the five fold stake.
    good luck with the other two games:50:
