A Goliath consists of 247 possible bet combinations involving selections in 8 different events.
The bet includes 28 doubles, 56 trebles, 70 fourfolds, 56 fivefolds, 28 sixfolds, 8 seven-folds and an accumulator.
A double is a combination of 2 events, treble is a combination of 3 events, a four-fold is a combination of 4 events, a five-fold is a combination of 5 events, a six-fold is a combination of 6 events, a seven-fold is a combination of 7 events and an accumulator in this instance means a combination of all 8 events.
E.g You place a Goliath bet on games A,B, C, D, E, F, G and H.
Let's say your stake is N50, please note that your total stake will be 50 X 247 = 12,350
This is so because your stake is charged separately for each possible combination and winnings are credited for each correct combination as well.

Your combinations would be arranged thus:
