9.13. Yankee

  1. A Yankee consists of eleven bets involving four selections from different events, comprising 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 accumulator. You need two successful selections to guarantee a return.

    For example, if the 4 selections and their odds were:

    A = 2.00B = 3.50C = 4.00D = 1.50

    (Fractional equivalent: Evens, 5/2, 3/1 & 1/2)

    a) If all 4 selections won in a €1 Yankee the winnings would be calculated as such:

    6 x Doubles

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A + B2.00 x 3.50= 7.00
    A + C2.00 x 4.00= 8.00
    A + D2.00 x 1.50= 3.00
    B + C3.50 x 4.00= 14.00
    B + D3.50 x 1.50= 5.25
    C + D4.00 x 1.50= 6.00

    4 x Trebles

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A + B + C2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00= 28.00
    A + B + D2.00 x 3.50 x 1.50= 10.50
    A + C + D2.00 x 4.00 x 1.50= 12.00
    B + C + D3.50 x 4.00 x 1.50= 21.00

    1 x Accumulator

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A + B + C + D2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00 x 1.50= 42.00

    The total payout for this bet would be the total of all 11 winning bets, in this case €156.75. The bet would cost €11 leaving an overall profit of €145.75.

    b) Using the same odds and stake as above, if only 3 selections won and selection D lost the winnings would be calculated as such:

    6 x Doubles

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A + B2.00 x 3.50= 7.00
    A + C2.00 x 4.00= 8.00
    A + D2.00 x Lose= Nil
    B + C3.50 x 4.00= 14.00
    B + D3.50 x Lose= Nil
    C + D4.00 x Lose= Nil

    4 x Trebles

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A + B + C2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00= 28.00
    A + B + D2.00 x 3.50 x Lose= Nil
    A + C + D2.00 x 4.00 x Lose= Nil
    B + C + D3.50 x 4.00 x Lose= Nil

    1 x Accumulator

    SelectionsOddsPayout
    A + B + C + D2.00 x 3.50 x 4.00 x Lose= Nil

    The total payout for this bet would be the total of all 4 winning bets, in this case €57.00 (the other 7 bets are losing ones). The bet would cost €11 leaving an overall profit of €46.00.
