What Is a Flag Bet?

A Flag bet, is just a bastardised version of an already existing type of bet, with the inclusion of an ‘any to come’ element to that bet.

For example, a Heinz, Super Heinz and Goliath bet all have flag variations (Heinz Flag, Super Heinz Flag and Goliath Flag), where the ‘Flag’ element adds Up-And-Down single stakes about (SSA) pairs to the bet. In addition to these three bet types, a ‘Flag’ bet, is a Yankee with the additon of SSA Pairs, and a ‘Super Flag’ is a Super Yankee with the additon of SSA Pairs. The Flag element does not add any additional ‘selections’ to your bet, if you are choosing 5 selections for a Super Yankee, then you will also be choosing the same 5 selections for a Super Flag.

This is illustrated below:

 

Super Heinz
No Of Selections No Of Bets
7 120 1 x 7 Fold Acca, 7 x 6 Fold Acca, 21 x 5 Fold Acca, 35 x 4 Fold Acca, 35 trebles, 21 Doubles
Super Heinz Flag
No Of Selections No Of Bets
7 162 1 x 7 Fold Acca, 7 x 6 Fold Acca, 21 x 5 Fold Acca, 35 x 4 Fold Acca, 35 trebles, 21 Doubles, 21 SSA Pairs

 

So in the above example, the addition of the ‘Flag’ any to come element to the Super Heinz bet, has no impact on the number of selections, just the volume of bets with the addition of SSA Pairs. This is exactly the same for ‘Every’ Type of flag bet, of which there are a few.
