A Yankee bet is 11 bets spread across different types from four betting selections from different events. Below, you’ll find how a Yankee bet is broken down.
It’s worth remembering that to see a return of some funds, you’ll need at least two out of the four selections to win. If none or one wins, then you won’t see a return of any funds.

How To Work Out A Yankee Bet
It can be difficult to work out the potential winnings from a Yankee bet, especially considering that different outcomes are depending on which selections are winning ones, and which are settled as losing bets.
You should look to convert your odds from fractions into decimals if possible, as you can divide the top number by the bottom number. Once you’ve done this, working out the potential returns from multiple bets that are included in a Yankee bet is much easier, as you simply have to multiply the odds together from each selection, before multiplying that number by your overall stake on the Yankee bet.
You can also find a detailed page on our Yankee bet calculator which explains how to use the tool and work out your potential winnings. Or you can use the tool below:
Yankee Bet Or A Lucky 15?
There isn’t too much of a difference between a Yankee bet and a Lucky 15 bet. The only difference is that a Lucky 15 bet has the same 11 total bets, but it also includes the single betting selections, which means that it consists of 15 bets altogether.
A Yankee bet doesn’t cover the single selections, so a positive of doing a Lucky 15 instead of a Yankee bet is that you can see a return of some funds with just one selection winning.
What’s The Difference Between A Yankee & A Super Yankee?
A Super Yankee bet is also known as a ‘Canadian’ bet with some betting sites. Again, like a Lucky 15, there isn’t too much difference between a Yankee and a Super Yankee. The only difference is that a Super Yankee consists of five betting selections, with that meaning that there are 26 bets in total included in a super Yankee.
