In Summary

A Lucky 63 bet consists of 6 selections and include 6 singles, 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 4-folds, 6 5-folds and 1 6-fold.

The advantage of this bet is that you only need one successful selection to see a return compared to a traditional accumulator which would return nothing if one or more selections lost. The disadvantage however is that it can become quite an expensive wager.
