The Canadian Bet Explained in Detail

This type of bet is similar to a Yankee bet and a Lucky 31. The difference is it entails five different selections and a total of 26 bets.

It’s also known as a Super Yankee, due to its resemblance and the fact that it offers more bets.

In summary, a Canadian or Super Yankee offers:

  •     Five different betting selections
  •     In total there will be 26 bets spread across these choices
  •     The bets are 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four-folds and a five-fold accumulator

This type of punt allows you more chance of winning as not all your selections have to win or place.

A Canadian is more expensive than an accumulator; that’s because of the number of bets.

This Super Yankee or Canadian – needs a minimum of two winning choices to guarantee a return. Each runner has an equal effect on the return from this bet meaning that a single loss can cause a huge impact on the overall winnings. Like the Lucky 31, The Canadian boasts a range of bookmaker bonuses.
