Yankee Bet Calculator
With our brilliant calculator, all you need to do is plug in the numbers of your Yankee bet and hit the magic button; there’s even an opportunity to choose each way. If you’re interested in learning the mechanics, it starts by calculating the outcome of eleven bets on four selections. Inside every Yankee bet is one four-fold, four trebles, and six doubles.
After choosing four selections, every Yankee bet will automatically calculate eleven bets. With this in mind, entering a stake of €1 will actually cost €11 (€1 for each bet). How much do you win? Well, this all depends on the selections that win, and the bets in which the selections are contained. If three selections lose, you walk away with nothing since there are no singles in a Yankee bet. If you want to make a profit, you will probably need three selections to win.
For the first six bets, these will be doubles and different combinations of the four selections. After this, there will be four different trebles. As the final bet, this will be all four selections as an accumulator.
Advantages of Choosing a Yankee Bet
Above all else, one benefit of this type of betting is that you can mitigate some of the risk of choosing four selections. Rather than relying on all four selections to be successful, you can still make a profit with three winners and still at least get something back with two winners. The more confident you are in the four selections, the better the return on your Yankee bet.
Disadvantages of Choosing a Yankee Bet
On the other hand, the disadvantage is that either a) the overall stake is higher or b) the stake on each individual bet is smaller. Does your increased chance of winning outweigh paying a higher stake?
Each Way Yankee Bet
Rather than eleven bets, an each-way Yankee will contain double this amount. While the first eleven remain exactly the same, the second eleven are extra bets placed each way for the same selections.
Yankee vs Lucky 15
If you’ve seen a Lucky 15 previously, you might wonder how the two differ. As the name suggests, a Lucky 15 has four additional selections. While the first eleven remain exactly the same as a Yankee, the new four are singles. Now, you have even more insurance because you only need one selection to win to recuperate some (although very little) money. Again, the drawback to this is the additional stake; it’s a case of risk vs reward.
In summary, a Yankee contains eleven bets across four selections;
- 1 four-fold
- 4 trebles
- 6 doubles
Though a higher stake, the chances of winning money increase and this is why some prefer it to a normal accumulator with four selections.
