A Yankee bet is basically a wager in which you cover several selections and they are permed together in a series of stand alone wagers.
To place a Yankee bet you need to pick 4 selections, these selections can be horses, greyhounds or in fact anything but each selection must be from a different horse/greyhound race or match, you cannot pick more than one selection running in a horse race for example.
A Yankee is in fact 11 unique/standalone bets and these bets are as follows: 6 doubles, 4 trebles, and an accumulator. With this type of wager you will have to pick 2 winners for you to guarantee a return, as the smallest wager is the double bet.
You need to multiply your base stake by 11 to arrive at the total cost of the wager. So for example a 10p Yankee will cost you in total £1.10 and a £1 Yankee will cost you £11.
Unlike bets such as an accumulator where every selection you pick must win to guarantee a return the beauty of a Yankee bet is that you are going to get a return for just two winners, so spend some time researching the form and let us hope you do indeed pick all four winners if you decide a Yankee bet is for you.
