The bet in question is the Goliath Bet and this lets you pick 8 horses or greyhounds in a race and have them fully permed together in everything for doubles right up to an eight fold accumulator.

Once you pick your eight selections they are permed together to make a total of 247 separate bets, thus you need to times your stake base level by 247 to arrive at your total stake.
