What is a patent bet?

A Patent bet is kind of like a Trixie bet but it has added security because it also includes singles. When placing a Patent bet, you are betting on 3 different outcomes in 3 events on 7 betslips which are split into 3 singles, 3 doubles and 1 treble. At least 1 of the outcomes must be correct for you to get a return on the Patent bet. The winning odds are either multiplied with each other or the stake to determine your return.

Example of a patent bet

For example, if you play a Patent bet with a stake of £10 on each betslip (£70 stake in total) on 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 £20 to £305 depending on which teams win their respective matches. If none of the teams win their respective matches your stake is lost.

Pros and cons of a patent bet

The pro of a Patent bet is that it only requires 1 correct outcome to get a return. The con of a Patent bet is the odds needs to be quite high to get a potential profit from just 1 or 2 correct outcomes because of the 7 stakes paid.

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.
