## What is a Patent bet?

A Patent bet is a three-leg wager that consists of seven different bets; three single bets, three double bets and one treble bet. A \$1 Patent bet will cost \$7, as \$1 is placed on each of the seven bets. The winning return of a patent bet is calculated by totalling each of the seven separate bets together. The advantage of a Patent bet over a Trixie bet is that if one selection wins, you will receive a payout from the corresponding single bet.

If two selections win and one selection loses, a Patent bet will return three dividends. If all three selections win, then all of the seven bets will generate a return.

If the selections in each of the three legs are: A, B and C, the seven bets that make up a Patent bet are:

• Single: A
• Single: B
• Single: C
• Double: A and B
• Double: A and C
• Double: B and C
• Treble: A, B and C
