    World cup betting

    I was looking at putting an accumulator on for the teams to top the each group in the world cup i looked on paddy power and there was an option for a seven fold and six fold etc or an accumulator can someone explain what this means ? If im betting on the 8 teams and i take the seven fold or six fold does that mean that i only need 6 or 7 of the bets to come in ?
    Thanks for any help.

    If you pick 8 teams & only want to bet 7 fold or 6 folds you will need to place 28 bets for 6 fold or 8 bets for 7 fold.

    Check this link out to work out hoe many folds for how many teams you pick

    if you make a selection of 8 teams and place an 8-fold that will be one bet and will only win if all selections are correct,
    if you place a 7-fold, then the number of permutations of selecting 7 from the 8 teams:
    1234567
    1345678
    1245678
    1235678
    1234678
    1234578
    1234568
    2345678
    and one more bet of 2345678
    are the bets you make.
    so yeah you only need 7 teams to win to win some bets.

    Ok thats helped thank you both but how would i work out my returns ?

    returns will be different depend who won.

    lets use 4 selections, you do a 3 fold or a treble at £5. thats 4 bets and will cost you £20.
    for calculating the returns just mutliply the odds of the winning bet by the stake.
    say the individual odds are:
    a:1.5
    b:1.6
    c:1.7
    d:1.8
    your bets/returns
    abc £20.4
    acd £22.95
    bcd £25.48
    abd £20.60
    total potential returns £89.43
