A Yankee is is a multi-bet with 4 selections. Although it’s most commonly used for horse racing, it can be used to cover any 4 selections on anything at all. If you can bet on it, you can add it to your Yankee.

What is a Yankee bet?

  • A Yankee is a combination of doubles, Trebles and a 4 Fold Accumulator
  • In a Yankee there are 6 x Doubles
  • A Yankee Consists of 4 x Trebles
  • 1 x 4 fold accumulator is in a Yankee Bet.

To get a return (to win) you need at least 2 winners as a Yankee has no single bets. Basically, it’s a lucky 15 without the singles. And although the Yankee is a great bet, a lucky fifteen is advisable. Please see Lucky 15 Vs Yankee to see why.

The Yankee Doubles are as follows: 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 2-3, 2-4, 3-4.

Yankee Trebles are: 1-2-3, 1-2-4, 1-3-4, 2-3-4

Four Fold accumulator: 1-2-3-4

As you can see there are 11 bets in total. So a £1 Yankee would cost £11.

How to place a Yankee Bet in the Bookies.

In the high street bookmakers, William hill, coral, Betfred, Ladbrokes etc simply walk in and choose a “yankee betting slit” from the selection which you’ll find on the walls in holders.

These slips can also be marked for Yankee or s super Yankee. In the boxes marker selection, write the names or number of your horses, dogs etc. In the box marked time/meeting section, write the name of the meeting ie: Haydock and the time of the race.

Write the amount per bet in the section @11 bets So £1 for example.

In the total bet, section write £11 for a £1 Yankee.

This is a bit complicated, the best way is to just grab a black slip and write the 4 selections, along with the time and meeting. Then write £1 Yankee if you want a £1 one, and in the total write £11.

Remember whatever your bet amount is you need to multiply it by 11 for the total bet cost.
