Canadian Bet Calculator
Some may know the Canadian bet as a 'Super Yankee' bet. This bet consists of five selections consisting of 26 different bet types. This also means that the entered stake is multiplied by 26 to calculate a total stake. The division of a Canadian bet is as follows:
- 10 doubles
- 10 trebles
- 5 four-fold accumulators
- 1 five-fold accumulator
How does the Canadian Bet work?
When looking to place bets online, the Canadian bet is a relatively complex bet for new customers and bettors. For those more experienced, they will make comparisons to Yankee bets or Lucky 15's. However, the Canadian bet is a larger bet than both Yankees and Lucky 15's. One common error is bettors failing to realise the impact a Canadian bet can have on your stake, if bettors wish to place a £10 bet, they must put £0.38p in the stake section of their bet.
