What is a Quad bet?
So you want to how to place a Quad bet? Or you want to know what a Quad bet is? Well, here we will take you through how to place a Quad bet as well as explain exactly how they work. A quad is also referred to also as a fourfold (4 fold) in the betting industry. In simple terms, a fourfold is one bet that requires four separate selections to all be successful to ensure a profit. If any of your bets lose then, your fourfold will also be settled by the bookmaker as a loss, meaning you lose your full stake.
How does a quad work?
As said above the quad/fourfold requires the punter to place four selections in order to accumulate profit. The quad/fourfold works by the return of your first selection rolling over on to your second selection, the return of your second selection will then roll over to your third selection, and the return of your third selection will roll on to the fourth selection.
Essentially this increases your odds in order to return a higher profit, and this does come with an increased risk as it only takes one selection to lose for the whole bet to lose.

How does my Quad win
Quads can have huge pay offs, this is because the profit accumulates over the four bets, this is the compound interest theory where you keep reinvesting your money on the next win. For a Quad to win through all four selections, need to either win or be a push/void.
