As the case with other system bets such as the Union Jack Round Robin, when you place a Lucky 63 bet at a bookmaker, it is only possible to see the potential winnings if all your selections are correct. But by using our Lucky 63 bet calculator, you can see in real-time what impact a result will have on your returns.
What is a Lucky 63 Bet?
It doesn’t take much imagination to work out why this bet is called a Lucky 63, quite simply the bet contains 63 bets which comprise of 6 singles, 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-folds, 6 five-folds and 1 six-fold over 6 selections. If you have used our Lucky 15 betting calculator then you will see some similarities.
The ‘Lucky’ aspect of the bet is the fact that this type of bet attracts some pretty attractive bonuses. Although this can change between the different bookmakers, as a rule of thumb a decent bookie will pay a 25% bonus if all your selections are correct. If one selection lets you down, you will receive a 10% bonus. Another decent added bonus is that if just one of your selections wins, the bookmaker will double the odds for that selection. While that may not produce enough of a return to cover the total cost of the bet, anything that minimises loses is always welcome in our books and of course you can check our Lucky 63 betting calculator to check.
How to use the Lucky 63 Betting Calculator
Using our Lucky 63 calculator couldn’t be easier, it’s simply a case of entering your stake, entering the odds and selecting if your selection is won, lost or a voided bet.
For reference, we used the Lucky 63 profit calculator to see what returns we would have from a near £20 stake on betting on football (£19.53 due to 63 x 0.31) with quite low odds of 2/1. If 6 won this would return £932.48 (plus any Lucky 63 bonus), 5 would pay £218.24, 4 would pay £39.68, 3 would return £14.57 (a loss of £4.95), 2 would result in a deficit of £16.12 by returning £3.41 and with the just one winner we would only see a return of 93p (plus the 10% bonus for just the one winner). This is information we wouldn’t have known without using the Lucky 63 profit calculator.

A Practical Example
Despite so many permutations in the 63 bets, the design of the bet means the order you make your selections has no bearing to the returns. We can use the Lucky 63 returns calculator to show this very simply.
Using the calculator, we will use a stake figure of £20 and use example odds of 3.0 decimal for each of the six selections. The calculator instantly tells us we have a potential return of £1,269.45, which is a profit of £1,249.92.
Now if we change any of the selections to a loss, the return drops to £317.13. As it makes no difference which selection I change, this confirms that the order of the selections doesn’t matter.
The Advantages and Disadvantages of this Tool
While there are aren’t many disadvantages of using our Lucky 63 bet calculator, the benefits are plain to see. A bookmaker’s betting slip will display the best-case scenario returns, but it will not tell you potential returns if one or more results don’t go your way, Using the Lucky 63 returns calculator shows in real-time what difference a bad result can mean for you. As some betting types are more forgiving than others, this can be an important consideration. Our test in the previous section showed that 4 correct selections should show a reasonable return, but this is dependant on the odds involved.
