Perm (or Permutation) Betting

• If you've made more than two selections, it's possible to 'perm' them in a bet. This allows you to bet on all the doubles in three selections, all the trebles in four selections or all the 4-folds in five selections etc.
• This is a convenient way to place a lot of multiple bets and can produce great winnings. For instance, if you place a perm bet of doubles from four selections you will receive some winnings if only two of your selections win.
• To get the maximum winnings from this type of bet, all your selections have to win. When you place your bet, you'll be shown a box which calculates your possible winnings* - please be aware that these are your maximum winnings and will only be achieved if all your selections win.
• * Please note that multiple returns shown on the bet slip are maximum potential returns, i.e. the most you can win. When a single dividend is part of the multiple, potential returns cannot be calculated and “n/a” is displayed in it's place.
