A Yankee bet consists of 11 bets, which are 6 doubles
, 4 trebles
and one fourfold accumulator
. This is worked out by unit stakes, which is applied to each of the eleven bets, so a £1 Yankee bet will cost a total of £11 in stake.
A Yankee bet can be quite daunting at first, and it is wise for novices to avoid these bets until they are fully understood. This is because a Yankee bet isnít actually one individual bet, it is a multiple bet system with full coverage, which needs skill to complete.
A total of eleven bets are made from four selections to make a Yankee bet. The individual bets made are 6 doubles, 4 trebles and a fourfold accumulator, which combine to make a bet which isnít for amateurs!
