## How to Work Out Your Yankee Bet Winnings - Calculate Your Yankee Bets In Seconds By Mobile Phone or Tablet Calculator.

To save repetition I will assume you have some knowledge about betting and odds - but if you need more advice check out our pages at at HOME > articles and full explanations are there.

Best way is just to give an example and explain from there.

Simple start - 4 winners in Yankee bet - 2/1 , 3/1/, 5/1 ,8/1.

First stage is to look at each price,go through the legs one by one and enter odds into calculator.

However,you need to adjust all odds by adding 2 units to each price - by that i mean that 2/1 now becomes 4 and 3/1 now becomes 5 and so on.

So,just enter 4 × 5 × 7 × 10 -easy,first stage done.

Next,you always need to deduct 1 to remove unit and make returns accurate.

So,now the equation is now 4 × 5 × 7 × 10 - 1 = 1399.00

By the way,the above equation gives you the returns for a £1 Lucky 15 bet £1,399.00) - no more to do for that bet because the Lucky 15 contains singles - but you have not got singles when doing a Yankee bet,so you are not finished yet.

To get rid of the singles being included in result you need to just deduct,one by one the returns for a £1 bet from equation.

.....

You should know the odds to a pound for every price but if you need explanation take a look at our page Work Out Single Bets Page.

So,lets take those singles out - now the formula is.....

4 × 5 × 7 × 10 - 1 - 3 - 4 - 6 - 9 = 1377.00 - £1377.00 returns for £1 bet.

If you bet in .25p ,just make one further calculation by × .25 at the very end,which gives your winnings of £344.25 for .25p yankee,and so on.

More dificult example - 4 winners in Yankee Bet 13/8, 7/4, 8/13,11/4.

Much more difficult at first sight ,but not for your calaculator and its just as quick as first easy example to work out.

Again add double unit to each price - just go through them one at a time - 13/8 becomes 29/8, 7/4 becomes 15/4 and so on.

So formula is 29 ÷ 8 × 15 ÷ 4 × 34 ÷ 13 × 19 ÷ 4 - 1...............167.88 (£167.88)

You now have returns for Lucky 15,but you need to deduct singles.

Experienced bettors will know the odds to a £1 and just deduct £2.625 for 13/8,£2.75 for 7/4 and so on,but you may need to work out price for each single before proceeding.

So,this is what you enter 29 ÷ 8 × 15 ÷ 4 × 34 ÷ 13 × 19 ÷ 4 - 1 - 2.625 - 2.75 - 1.62 - 3.75 = 157.13 (£157.13)

If you need to work out odds for a £1 single (refer to previous article Work Out Single Bets Page).

Another Yankee bet - this time just 3 winners - 15/8, 4/1, 11/8.

Exactly same procedure,even though you have just 3 winners - just enter 3 prices.

Equation is 31 ÷ 8 × 6 × 27 ÷ 8 - 1 - 2.87 - 5 - 2.38 = 67.22 (£67.22).

Always remember to deduct 1 after odds are multiplied,and just make the last calculation for the odds you have bet in (× .25 for 25p,×.05 for 5p,× 2.5 for £2.50 units.)

So,get used to this procedure - enter each price one by one,and you can work out any Yankee Bet in a matter of seconds !.
