Why is this bet called a “Yankee”?
No one is really sure where the word Yankee originated from; some say a British Army general named James Wolf used it first in 1758 when he was commanding; some New England soldiers in America, others say the word comes from a Cherokee word Ian Kay which means coward!
Wherever the word comes from … does not matter now as the Yankee bet has remained in the betting shops for decades … and looks like it is going nowhere!The Yankee is closely related to the lucky 15. The lucky 15 is simply a Yankee with four single bets.

How many bets are required to gain a return?
This means that a Yankee would therefore require 2 winning selections to enable a return, assuming the bet was a WIN Yankee.
If the Yankee was an each way bet, this would of course total 22 Bets. The return from an Each Way Yankee with require two of the selections minimum to be placed. See our each Way Guide HERE.
Punters must bear this in mind when placing their Yankee bets and selecting the correct prices which would suit their needs.
For example, if you had a win double as you only return, and both these winners consisted of even money favourites the return of your £1 Yankee brackets which totals 11 pound would only be 4 pounds.
This is one of the most important factors that punters should bear in mind when structuring their multiple bets.
It is very popular for punters to opt for the each way choice of Yankee due to this factor above, however, this of course results in 22 Bets in total - and some punters would rather reduce their stake and be in with more of a chance of obtaining a return, rather than have a larger stake consisting of a win only bet.
At the end of the day, it is all down to personal preferences.
