What is a Yankee Bet?

A Yankee is a full cover bet in which you choose 4 selections. These 4 selections are then used to create 6 Doubles, 4 Trebles and 1 Four-Fold accumulator. Overall, that's 11 bets. Unlike its cousin the Lucky 15, this bet type doesn't include any single bets. Click here to add some example odds for a Yankee to the betting calculator. If you set the two highest priced odds to lose, you'll see that with a Yankee it's possible to have two losers and still be (marginally) in profit. If you set the two short priced selections to lose, then the profit is even greater. With a Yankee, then, it's possible to hedge your bets with more certain selections and hope for a big payoff should all of them romp home.

So, the Yankee allows you to mitigate the risk of the four fold by the range of double and trebles contained within it. By playing with the calculator you can get a feel for the impact that losing selection can have on your bottom line. As you'll find out, it can be a safer way of aiming for those massive accumulator pay days. Beware, though, that because it includes 11 individual bets the stake is of course much higher than a standard 4-fold accumulator.
