Yankees are one of the multiple bet systems out there, it is a full coverage bet, and they require a fair bit of skill to accomplish. Winning with a yankee bet is difficult if you don’t understand all the elements of the bet. At the very least, you should be able to name all the parts of a bet before you put your money on it. This is because a Yankee is made up of different multiple bets. Learn here how to bet with Yankee and Super Yankee betting systems, use our Yankee calculator.

YANKEEA Yankee consists of eleven bets involving four selections from different events, comprising 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 accumulator. You need two successful selections to guarantee a return.

For example, if the 4 selections and their odds were:

 A = 2.00 B = 3.50 C = 4.00 D = 1.50

(Fractional equivalent: Evens, 5/2, 3/1 & 1/2)

a) If all 4 selections won in a €1 Yankee the winnings would be calculated as such:

6 x Doubles

 Selections Odds Payout A + B 2.00 x 3.50 = 7.00 A + C 2.00 x 4.00 = 8.00 A + D 2.00 x 1.50 = 3.00 B + C 3.50 x 4.00 = 14.00 B + D 3.50 x 1.50 = 5.25 C + D 4.00 x 1.50 = 6.00

4 x Trebles

 Selections Odds Payout A + B + C 2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00 = 28.00 A + B + D 2.00 x 3.50 x 1.50 = 10.50 A + C + D 2.00 x 4.00 x 1.50 = 12.00 B + C + D 3.50 x 4.00 x 1.50 = 21.00

1 x Accumulator

 Selections Odds Payout A + B + C + D 2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00 x 1.50 = 42.00

The total payout for this bet would be the total of all 11 winning bets, in this case €156.75. The bet would cost €11 leaving an overall profit of €145.75.

b) Using the same odds and stake as above, if only 3 selections won and selection D lost the winnings would be calculated as such:

6 x Doubles

 Selections Odds Payout A + B 2.00 x 3.50 = 7.00 A + C 2.00 x 4.00 = 8.00 A + D 2.00 x Lose = Nil B + C 3.50 x 4.00 = 14.00 B + D 3.50 x Lose = Nil C + D 4.00 x Lose = Nil

4 x Trebles

 Selections Odds Payout A + B + C 2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00 = 28.00 A + B + D 2.00 x 3.50 x Lose = Nil A + C + D 2.00 x 4.00 x Lose = Nil B + C + D 3.50 x 4.00 x Lose = Nil

1 x Accumulator

 Selections Odds Payout A + B + C + D 2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00 x Lose = Nil

The total payout for this bet would be the total of all 4 winning bets, in this case €57.00 (the other 7 bets are losing ones). The bet would cost €11 leaving an overall profit of €46.00.

SUPER YANKEEA Super Yankee (also known as a Canadian) consists of twenty six bets involving five selections from different events, comprising 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four-folds and 1 accumulator. You need two successful selections to guarantee a return.
