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.
