What is a trixie bet?
A Trixie bet is most commonly used in horse racing but can also be used while betting on other sports. When placing a Trixie bet, you are betting on 3 different outcomes in 3 events on 4 different betslips which are split into 1 treble and 3 doubles. At least 2 of the outcomes must be correct for you to get a return on the Trixie bet. The winning odds are multiplied with each other and then the stake to determine your return.
Example of a trixie bet
For example, if you place a Trixie bet with a stake of £10 on each betslip (£40 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 £40 to £240 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 trixie bet
The pro of a Trixie bet is that you only need 2 correct outcomes to get a return while you win a substantial amount if all 3 outcomes are correct. The con of a Trixie bet is that you need to pay 4 stakes instead of 1 stake.

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.
