A Super Yankee is a bet consisting of five selections which houses twenty-six bets.
Much like in a Lucky 63 bet, a Super Yankee offers huge returns. However, they can come at a cost as each bet has equal value and any single loss reduces the amount of potential winnings dramatically.
The Lucky 63 – and the similar Lucky 31 – are higher-stakes versions of the Super Yankee and may be the bets offered with bookmaker bonuses, as opposed to a Super Yankee, as it comprises fewer bets.
Placing a Super Yankee bet is very much like placing an accumulator only with far greater odds, but with that comes a much larger chance of a losing bet.
Punters could place a Super Yankee bet of 10 doubles, 10 trebles, five four-folds and a five-fold accumulator on a weekend of English football matches in the style of a traditional acca, as long as it houses the required number of bets.
However, one good thing about a Super Yankee is that only two bets need to come in in order to gain a return, albeit a small one. If more winning bets come in, then the bigger the return for the punter.
Each bet has the same return, meaning the returns are heavily reduced upon each losing bet.
The name Super Yankee is rumoured to come from an American soldier who found himself in the UK and placed a small bet but won back hundreds of thousands of pounds. It’s impossible to verify, but it makes for a nice story!
