A patent bet is a bet which consists of 3 singles, 3 doubles and a treble from 3 selections.
This full cover bet is essentially a Trixie bet with 3 single bets added to each selection. The three choices appear in 1 single, 2 doubles and a treble bet, outlined in the example below:
|Part||Selection||Number of bets|
|Single||1, 2, 3||3|
|Double||12, 23, 13||3|
This results in 7 bets in total.
If a selection loses then it can adversely affect the bet, so it is wise to be careful when placing these types of bet, but any one winning choice from a patent bet can lead to a return, which is the main advantage of placing a Trixie bet.
