What is a heinz bet?
A Heinz bet is named after the famous food processing company which brands itself on offering 57 varieties. When placing a Heinz bet, you are betting on 6 different outcomes in 6 events on 57 betslips which are split into 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 fourfold accumulators, 6 fivefold accumulators and 1 sixfold accumulator. At least 2 of the outcomes must be correct for you to get a return on the Heinz bet. The winning odds are multiplied with each other and then the stake to determine your return.
Example of a heinz bet
For example, if you play a Heinz with a stake of £1 on each betslip (£57 in total) on Wolves to beat Watford at odds 1/1 (Evens), Everton to beat Leicester at odds 1/1 (Evens), Sevilla to beat Valencia at odds 6/4, Arsenal to beat Tottenham at odds 6/4, Barcelona to beat Atletico Madrid at odds 1/1 (Evens) and Manchester City to beat Liverpool at odds 1/1 (Evens) your return can range from £4 to £978.25 depending on which teams win their respective matches. If only 1 of the teams win their match your stake is lost.
Pros and cons of a heinz bet
The pro of a Heinz bet is that you can make a solid profit from a double or treble if you go for high odds (7/1 or higher). The con of a Heinz bet is that it is almost only suited for horse racing.

How to use the bet calculator
It's easy to use the Unibet Betting Odds Calculator. First, you need to decide which type of bet you want, of which we have many, from singles, accumulators to Goliaths and Lucky 15s, 31 s and 63s.
Once you've chosen, select your bet type on the calculator (which we've broken out with easy navigational links in the menu) and then decide if you want the odds to be displayed in a fractional or decimal format in the top right corner.
After that, you'll need to input your stake - how much you want to bet. You'll then want to decide if that bet is each way, add any rule 4s, and whether you want to see the selection notes or fold options. We've put a tooltip text over some of these, to give you some explanation if they're unfamiliar. Finally, enter the odds and the outcome: Winner, Lost, Void and/or Dead Heat. If there are multiple selections you would like to make, enter the odds for each one. Simply click the 'Calculate Now' option and both your potential return and profit will be displayed for you.
